    Default Internet Explorer Problems and IE Debuging

    Internet Explorer Problems and IE Debuging


    Hii,
    we have problems on IE...
    But we have to support our systems in IE, since many users use IE...

    Anyway,
    I wonder to learn what is the right way of debuging in IE.
    I mean do Ext team prefere which tools to test (and debuging) the applications in IE?

    And should we know which basic principles about IE while coding? (any link about this subject)

    Best wishes, thanks a lot.
    Extatic Emre...

    I don't have any tutorials, but here is a list of software I use to debug in IE:

    Internet Explorer Application Compatibility VPC Image (to test a specific IE version - Script Debugger and Developer Toolbar are already included)
    IETester (for quickly comparing rendering differences between IE versions)
    Fiddler2 (for XHR testing)

    I heard good things about debugging with Visual Studio Express (apart from it being rather slow), but I never used it.

    Visual Studio debugger did miracles for me. If fact i use it more than firebug. If you are not lucky enough to have Full Visual Studio you can try to setup Visual Studio Express. Nice tutorial http://www.berniecode.com/blog/2007/...loper-express/

    You could also check out Firebug Lite:
    Firebug Lite is a JavaScript file you can insert into your pages to simulate some Firebug features in browsers that are not named "Firefox".
    It creates the variable "firebug" and doesn't affect or interfere with HTML elements that aren't created by itself.

    You could use visual web developer express to find that bug ;-)

    I use IE8's debugger to debug IE problems. Even though a lot of our customers use IE6. It's nearly as buggy, so I can usually get things ironed out before I have to RDP to the one machine we have which we keep an old copy of IE6 on!

    This modified version is supposed to work with IE7, at least. You could give that a try...
