User interface element Description
Breakpoints Displays a list of the breakpoints set by script type, script name, and line number. The debugger updates this list as you add and remove breakpoints.
Call stack Displays a list of script calls that preceded or invoked the current line number. This information is only visible when the debugger pauses on a breakpoint.
Transaction details Displays information about the current transaction. This information is only visible when the debugger pauses on a breakpoint.
Status Displays if the debugger is waiting for a breakpoint, paused on a breakpoint, or has encountered an exception.
User Displays the name of the user who is running the current debugger session.
Coding pane header Displays the script type and name of the script in the coding pane.
Breakpoint icon Indicates the line number where the debugger pauses when evaluating the current script.
Pause debugging button Stops any current debugging session, and disables the Script Debugger for the current user. The Script Debugger does not pause on breakpoints for the current user until it is restarted.
Resume script execution button Advances from the current breakpoint to the next breakpoint. If there are no other breakpoints, the script runs to completion.
Step over next function call button Advances past the method that is about to be called, executing the method as a single step.
Step into next function call Advances to the first line of executed code within a method call. Stepping into a method updates the current position within the call stack. If the user does not have read access to the method call, then this control acts like step over instead.
Step out of current function Exits from current method call and returns to the calling script from the call stack. If the user is not within a method call, then this control acts like step over instead.
Local Displays a list of local scope JavaScript variable names and their values. This information is only visible when the debugger pauses on a breakpoint.
Closures Displays a list of global scope JavaScript variable names and their values set by function closure. This information is only visible when the debugger pauses on a breakpoint.
Global Displays a list of global scope JavaScript variable names and their values. This information is only visible when the debugger pauses on a breakpoint.
