Debug Tricks. Alert vs #Debug

JavaScript comes with a handy alert function that pops up a dialog. This first button shown calls the JavaScript alert utility. It is convenient to use alert, but often one wants to send back complex, length messages that don't fit in a dialog, or else one simply wants to avoid having to click on a dialog each time a message appears. The second button shows one simple solution.

Show Alert

Show Debug

Show Types

Show Two kinds of Properties are the same

Click the button to see that myObject.myProperty and myObject['myPropery'] are two ways of saying the same thing.

Test Properties

View JavaScript

Call Test01


Call SayHello


Use Prototype to Extend the String Class

Call Elvenware.testDecoration()



Call Show Properties

One of the properties shown here is defined with a prototype.

call elvenware.showProperties()



Object Create


Create Object

The properties we create can be configurable, writable, or enumerable. Push the button to see the values for myProperty in the following object:

var myObject = { myProperty: 12 };

Get Descriptor

You can discover the properties of an object by two means.

Here is an example:

function getMyKeys()
    keys = Object.keys(myObject);
    for (var i = 0; i < keys.length; i++)
        $('#myObjectKeys').append(keys[i] + '<br>');
    for (var x in myObject)
        $('#myObjectKeys').append(x + ' = ' + myObject[x] + '<br>');

Press the button below to execute this code.

Get Keys
