No, IntelliJ Idea does not even have Javascript support at the moment.
Jetbrains promised that in the next version, there will be some SIMPLE
JavaSctipt support :) . In the meantime you can use Venkman from
Mozilla: "http://www.mozilla.org/projects/venkman/"

Thank you.

But we need a JavaScript debugger for the IE (Internet Explorer) and the Venkman debugger supports only the Mozzila browsers.

Do you know a JavaScript debugger that runs with IE?

thank you,

Sorry, I'm not aware of such a debugger :(. I don't think that Microsoft
encourages JavaScript, since they would like if everybody would use
VBScript :).

some time ago there was a simple one that could be downloaded from the microsoft site (it was maybe the scripting host?). Visual studio should include one, too.

Visual Studio contains many other tools and is very expensive.
The following tool exists which is not bad, but was wondering if there are further alternatives.

This is the one that I use for IE javascript debugging. It works, but
it has a few issues. Sometimes it seems not to be able to identify any
of my IE instances, sometimes it finds them all. Unfortunately, there
just isn't much else available.

Hi,

You can use the Debugbar (http://www.debugbar.com ) to execute any javascript directly on the loaded web page under Internet Explorer.
This should help for degugging.

Best Regards.

Hi Rami, not being funny but what's the difference? You should be designing any website to display the same in all browsers anyhow, so surely making sure your javascript is compliant is part of your mantra anyhow? In which case you are better off using Mozilla to debug regardless since IE will allow you to get away with a lot of non-standard code which will not work in any other browser (whilst Mozilla is W3C compliant and supports very few features that other browsers including IE do not).

Currently our application supports IE only.
Thank you for your interest.

My problem is javascript works fine in Mozilla whereas in IE I have an unspecified error at line 63 char 2!!

So I need a IE debugger too.
