View Full Version : debugging: cfdump equivalent?

11-02-2006, 07:03 PM
My main background is a ColdFusion web developer (yay adobe :)), and I'm wondering if there is some equivalent function in Actionscript 3.0 that mirrors the functionality of a <cfdump /> ColdFusion tag.

I'm attempting to get a simple Flex application communicating with my ColdFusion CFC's and at the moment, my only real Flex debug code consists of:

Alert.show(myObject.toString(),"My Title");

It's been a real pain to get any real solid idea of what's going on in my application.

Any ideas?

Hmm I for SURE am no CF person LOL but I did see an article while browsing around about using ObjectUtil instead of toString. Here's the link: Stop Debugging the Old Way (http://www.tricedesigns.com/tricedesigns_home/blog/2006/10/objectutil-stop-debugging-old-way.html)

Hope that helps,

maybe also - FusionDebug could help in this case ...

I haven't heard of FusionDebug -- do they have a website I could poke around?
