How to Debug Client-Side Script In Internet Explorer

If you have got a lot of JavaScript code in your ASP.NET pages, chances are you have to debug it at some point of time to fix a bug or test the output. In IE, you need to explicitly enable debugging support inside the browser. Follow these steps to do so:

Open IE > Tools > Internet Options

Click Advanced Tab > Under the ‘Browsing’ section, clear the checkbox against ‘ Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)’.


That’s it. Now put a breakpoint in your JavaScript code and run the application in Visual Studio.

There are other tools like Microsoft Script Editor too which can be used.

Other browsers like Firefox has tools like FireBug, which is a great tool to debug Client-Side Script.
