Gets a value that indicates whether the debug versions of client script libraries will be rendered.

 property bool IsDebuggingEnabled { bool get(); };
public bool IsDebuggingEnabled { get; }
member this.IsDebuggingEnabled : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsDebuggingEnabled As Boolean
Property Value

true if the current request is executing in debug mode; otherwise, false.


The IsDebuggingEnabled property returns false when any one of the following conditions is true:

  • In the element of the configuration file, the retail attribute is set to true. This overrides all other settings.

  • The ScriptMode property is set to Auto or to Inherit, and debugging is not enabled in the compilation section of the application-root Web.config file.

  • The ScriptMode property is set to Release.


    The debug attribute of the directive does not affect Ajax-enabled ASP.NET applications. The ScriptManager control uses only the settings in the Web.config file and in its IsDebuggingEnabled and ScriptMode properties to determine whether to render debug scripts.
