WriteLine Method

Sends strings to the script debugger, followed by a newline character.


Debug.WriteLine([str1 [, str2 [, ... [, strN]]]])


  • str1, str2, ... , strN
    Optional. Strings to send to the script debugger.


The WriteLine method sends strings, followed by a newline character, to the Immediate window of the Microsoft Script Debugger at run time. If the script is not being debugged, the WriteLine method has no effect.

The WriteLine method is almost identical to the Write method. The only difference is that the Write method does not send a newline character after sending the strings.

This example uses the WriteLine method to display the value of the variable in the Immediate window of the Microsoft Script Debugger.


To run this example, you must have a script debugger installed and the script must run in debug mode.

Internet Explorer 8 includes the Microsoft JScript debugger. If you are using an earlier version of Internet Explorer, see How to: Enable and Start Script Debugging from Internet Explorer.
