debugging IE7

I have a script which is working fine in Firefox and until recently
worked in IE7 too. I have been working on the script and decided to
test it on my wife's XP laptop and, lo and behold, it no longer works
with IE7. With Firefox debugging is simple using Firebug but what does
one use in IE7? I get a warning in the bottom left which say "Error on
the page" (actually "Fehler auf der Seite" as my wife's laptop has
German Windows installed but I will try and translate the warnings as
I don't know exactly what an English version would say.). When I
double click on this warning a popup appears with the following,
insufficient, information:
Row:163, Zeichen:5, Error: "The object doesn't support this method",
Code:0, URL:http://members.chello.at/stephen.joung/testsite/
indexMW_Distanc e20.html

But the HTML file doesn't even have 163 rows and the js file has no
problems around row 163 that I can see.

For any of you who have experience of this I link to the html and js
pages in the hope that you can help find the problem.

Correct

function load() {
linkA= readCookie('lin ka');
linkB= readCookie('lin kb');

to

function load() {
var linkA = readCookie('lin ka');
var linkB = readCookie('lin kb');

that should help. Currently you are trying to assign to linkA/linkB
which are HTML element objects in IE's DOM.

Many thanks Martin, that was indeed the problem.

Scenario: This is about debugging server side scripts that make calls to middle-tier business DLLs. The server side scripts are legacy ASP 3.0 pages, and the DLLs are managed DLLs converted/developed with VB.NET. What I want from debugging is to be able to step into the methods in the DLLs called from ASP scripts using Visual Studio .NET. Background: For typical script debugging issues, you can read and follow the two documents on...

Hi everybody, My problem seems a bit clichè but I could not work around. Well I read lots of MSDN papers and discussions, but my problem is a bit different from them.

Hi, Using VS.NET 2003, when I use 'F5' to start debugging my web app, it obviously attaches the IDE to IIS for server debugging. However, it also seems to put IE into some kind of debugging mode (for javascript debugging) This causes IE to consume loads of CPU if the page is very large. Is there any way to have debugging of server side code but leave IE in "normal" mode?

Hi All, My system: WinXP Pro, VS.NET 2003, SQL Server Personal Edition. I'm having problems with my old favourite demon, SQL Debugging from within VS.NET. I have to say I've found this particular feature to be one of the most useful and (sadly) unreliable/fragile features in VS.NET, it seems the slightest thing will break it.

VS 2008 initially didn't debug classic ASP. SP1 fixes this in some ways. You can debug if you select the debug option to "Start Without Debugging, then either attach the debugger manually or place a stop directive in the code which ends up doing the same thing. The problem with this is that you can't debug browser side Javascript in the same debug run. You get a "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. The document is not loaded." if...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
