Is there a way in IE developer tool to break the debugger from the middle of execution? I google it, but didn't found any article which give me some direction on this.

Another Method would be to write "debugger" into your JavaScript Code, Open the Debugging Tools (F12) and open your page.

The debugger will stop where you write "debugger" in your javascript code.


Yes you can.

Open Developer Tools (F12). Add Breakpoint on your desired page. For Example, in this answer I use the AllItem.aspx page. enter image description here

Now refresh the page and you will see that the breakpoint was hit. enter image description here

  • Thanks, But seems my question wasn't clear. Once the debugger starts and if I am in the middle of debugging and if I want to STOP the debugger. How to do it? We have this facility in Visual studio but I wonder, if its there in IE or Chrome. – Chintan.Desai Dec 1 '16 at 3:43
  • If you want to stop the debugger, just click the green Play button. Then the debugger will stop and the page will load normally. – AWJ Dec 1 '16 at 5:37
  • Any how, green button will execute the execution further (F5). Which I don't want. I am expecting that it should stop it completely and break out. Same like in Visual Studio (Shift + F5) – Chintan.Desai Dec 2 '16 at 5:06
  • anybody knows this? – Chintan.Desai Dec 2 '16 at 10:44
