Stop Statement

Suspends execution.

Syntax

Stop

Remarks

You can place Stop statements anywhere in procedures to suspend execution. Using the Stop statement is similar to setting a breakpoint in the code.

The Stop statement suspends execution, but it does not close any files or clear any variables.

Note

The Stop statement has no effect unless the script is being debugged.

This example uses the Stop statement to suspend execution for each iteration through the For...Next loop.

Note

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.
