OutputDebugString (C++) / Trace.WriteLine (C#)

Recommended Posts


Hey everybody!

Is there a way to call a function that write the debug stream (prints to the DebugView).

Just like OutputDebugString(c++) or Trace.WriteLine(c#) functions.

If not, so any other functions that prints without a MsgBox()

A2. You can also debug a script on any computer by adding the following code to your script:

AutoItFunc dbg($msg)
    DllCall("kernel32.dll", "none", "OutputDebugString", "str", $msg)

Then, when you need to add a debug line, call it as necessary. Example:

AutoItdbg("The value of Variable 1 at this time is " & $var1)

This debugging is completely transparent to the user, and is only viewable with a program such as DebugView from SysInternals. This method of debugging has the added advantage of being available to the developer in situations where is not acceptable or feasable to install SciTE on a client's unit.
