what is it the best practice to test the various function into the script ?
Is there a kind of 'immediate window' or something similar if I want to see how a funcrtion works ?
What is a 'immediate window'?
I would start with using the debug dialog (open it from the script editor) and step through the script code.
Add more variables or TRACE statements to query and display debug information from tables / system.
'Immediate window' is a reminiscence of the VBA, it's a window where I can digit a variable or a function and I can see immediately the result.
Well, I knew the debug dialog, I didn't know the TRACE statement: I'll try it
IMO, the debug dialog is very limited compared to other IDEs.
Unfortunately, there wasn't much change in the last few major QV versions considering debugging.
I agree, it would really benefit from some neat data inspector feature, allowing to see table structure and content while running.
