This topic describes procedures performed within Internet Explorer when you debug client-side code with Visual Studio.

TipTip

The following procedures use the Tools and View menus on the Menu bar, which might not be visible. To display the Menu bar in Internet Explorer 9 right-click the title bar and select Menu bar. To display the Menu bar in Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8, click the Tools button, click Toolbars, and then select Menu Bar.

To enable script debugging in Internet Explorer

  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  2. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.

  3. In the Browsing category, clear the Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer) check box.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Exit and restart Internet Explorer.

To begin script debugging in Visual Studio from Internet Explorer

  1. Script debugging must be enabled as described in the previous procedure.

  2. On the View menu in Internet Explorer, select External Script Debugger, and then click Open.

    The Visual Studio Just-In-Time Debugger dialog box opens.

  3. On the Possible Debuggers list, select New Instance of Visual Studio.

  4. Click Yes.

    A new instance of Visual Studio appears and debugging begins. In Visual Studio, you can now open script documents from Solution Explorer, place breakpoints in script, step through script code, and view variables and properties in variable windows or the Immediate window.

To begin script debugging in Visual Studio at the next script statement

  1. Script debugging must be enabled as described in the previous procedure.

  2. On the View menu in Internet Explorer, select External Script Debugger, and then click Break at Next Statement.

    The Visual Studio Just-In-Time Debugger dialog box opens.

  3. On the Possible Debuggers list in the Visual Studio Just-In-Time Debugger dialog box, select New Instance of Visual Studio.

  4. Click Yes.

    A new instance of Visual Studio appears, but debugging does not begin until the next script statement executes. You can now open script documents from Solution Explorer immediately but you cannot control execution until debugging begins.
