    How to find the "real" error line when HS logs an error

    I'm trying to convert an HS3 script back to run in HS2. When the script is run, I get this error:

    Script compile error: Expression expected.on line 221

    If I open the script in Visual Studio 2010 Express, line 221 is a blank line! How can I determine the actual line that's causing the error?

    Thanks!

    If memory serves me correctly HS adds 13 lines to the file.

      My recollection is the same.

      I find tenScripting to be helpful when debugging HS scripts.

        Thanks to both of you! I'll try both methods.

          One way to determine this is to create a syntax on the first statement of your script and see which line number is indicated and adjust from there

            Brilliant! Will try that tomorrow. Thanks!

              Thanks to all of you! The 13-line offset is still correct. Just for the benefit of others seeing this in the future, the actual line number is 13 less than that shown in the error message.

                Unfortunately there is a slight disconnect between tenScripting, which is wonderful, and HS. Things will run perfectly from tenScript but then fail in HS for a variety of reasons.

                Still far better that using WriteLog calls.

                  Personally, I wish HS provided an option to save the "augmented" source. It would be nice to see what HS adds.

                    I would like to keep an ongoing document of any differences between tenScripting and HS script compilation and execution, as an aide to all. Could you and others provide examples please.

                      Also, as a reminder, tenScripting now supports C# script development
