Popup Debug


response.write is okay for simple debugging but can become intrusive and cause formating problems itself. This simple script will display your debuging in a pop up window.

Original Author: Chris Graham

Inputs

A string to identify the debug message.
The value to be displayed in the popup window.

Assumptions

The ASP server side code generates simple client side javascript to display a popup winndow with the debug value in it.

Returns

None.

Side Affects

As this inserts client side script it can sometimes confuse the browser.

Code

Include this function into your ASP page by pasting or prerably #include ing it.
'*************************************************
'* FUNCTION: popupDebug(name,value)
'*
'* PURPOSE: Displays a client side popup window with debug information
'*
'* INPUT:  name, used to identify debug. value, debug value to display

'* AUTHOR:  Chris Graham
