Support 1a

Thank you for your question. The current version of Formativ does not include step debugging facilities. This is due to an architectural idiosyncracy of GroupWise and Formativ. However, step debugging will be included in the next major release (no release timeframe is currently available).

There are a couple of techniques you can use to help in debugging applets though. Perhaps the most usesful is the trace method. Trace() writes a string out to any attached debugger, allowing you to watch the flow of a script.

For example, including the following line in an applet:

Call Utilities.Trace("This is a trace line")

results in the text “This is a trace line” being output to any attached debugger. I would recommend DebugView from SysInternals.

I hope this helps.
