Tip, use floating timed dialogs

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share a tip. I was finding it difficult to understand exactly what was happening as my macro waited for or tested for various conditions. I have found that using the timed floating dialog box is a great way to provide feedback as to when the macro finds certain conditions. The command to show the box can always be disabled or deleted after things are working, but it seems a great way to aid in debugging things. I have not found it to interfere with the execution of the macro at all.

Good tip! I use the same technique to display the current values of variables, or to show a script has reached a certain point.

 

Here is a tip in return: in the Script Editor, the keyboard shortcut to disable/enable a line of code is Ctrl + N.

Good suggestion.

When I insert debugging code, I almost always disable the lines when done rather than remove them, because I probably will need them again someday. :o
