Macro debugger functionality?

Why can't I get the debugger to work.... I am under the impression that it should work similarly to MS Access but I can't seem to make it work. I would like to step through the code and see values, etc and place stop lines... Does the QV debugger simply not work that way? Am I missing something? A setting or option?

Running QV 10


Thanks for the help.

Macro debugger functionality?

Hi

I seem to remeber reading in the manual (or perhaps it was a post on this forum) that for full debugging functionality, the debugger uses the Microsoft script debugger. Download the MS script debugger from microsoft.com and then try the macro debugger.

I have not tried this myself, so I would be interested yo know if that really works.

Hope that helps

Macro debugger functionality?

Hi

I have the same problem and I have installed the Microsoft Script Debugger.

It does NOT work:

A dialog is opened at the bottom of the macro editor window and closed again immediately.

Script Debugging does not work in QV10, applies to both 32-bit and 64. Works fine in QV9 - but get the same "screen flash" as mentioned from christian.tiim when trying to debug. Someone from QlikTech that can confirm this? Months since this thread where opened..

Macro debugger functionality?

this is from the version 11 beta release notes:

it comes under the heading like this:

"Comments on product features

The following features are conscious design decisions and

most of them are not likely to change in coming Service Releases."

*     The macro script debugger is no longer in QlikView. The product is no longer supported by Microsoft.

seems like bed news

yeah, quite a bad news... perhaps QlikView has to support more scripting languages!!!
