JavaScript debugging (client side) with PHP

Postby Jradxl » May 23rd, 2017, 3:37 pm

Hello Devsense, or anyone else..
I have the vs2017 version trial running and have tried to debug JavaScript a) as a .js file in a script tag, and b) as embedded in script tag.
I'm impressed that with IE it works in the IDE as a break point and local variables.
In Edge it seems only to work with the developer tools in the browser.

Please can you say what is to be expected with your current vs2017 version. I thing your documentation is out of date or I've not found the right documentation yet!!

Also, can I expect such in Firefox, Opera and Chrome?
If so I need to know what to install and how to configure.

You can already debug JS in Chrome and Firefox. In fact Chrome had it built-in first and has probably the most mature developer tools of the lot.

As for how this relates to PHP Tools? I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but if it is "can I debug JS running in the browser using VS2017?", the I will just say "probably not ever".
