Flash Form Debugging

While I'm enjoying the power and especially the "look and feel" of the new flash forms interface I'm are a little frustrated with the lack of good debugging information. It would be nice if additional information could be ported into the Coldfusion debugging info at the bottom - or a perhaps a log file could be written. It's very hard to know what's going on. When a flash form is long it takes a while to compile anyway. Because I don't know how long it should take I end up sitting on my hands waiting for the little "initializing" to appear. If it doesn't I assume something has gone wrong internally and start looking at the code. That's not exactly slam dunk debugging.

Niklas Richardson's Gravatar You can turn on Flash Form debugging in the ColdFusion administrator.

This will then display an Flash Form actionscript (or such) errors where the Flash Form should be.

Hope that helps.

johnb's Gravatar yeah, but even with flash form debugging switched on, if you goof the code the error that gets displayed references line numbers in the mxml file that has been built - bugger all use when you're writing .cfm files!

mkruger's Gravatar Funny... we had turned this and thought it was to no effect. Now that I check on it though it is turned off. Is this like 6.1 where you lose the debug enable setting on a reboot?
