Debugging live swf

March 25th, 2007

There are many times in a complex application done in flash you need to see how it responds in the field using live data on the web rather than purely tracing results in the Flash program itself.

My current toolbox includes:

xray and also it’s online console built using flex,

charles web debugging proxy (fantastically handy tool not only for flash, but for all sort of web development – it monitors and logs client side/server side communications and data transferred)

I’ve just come up with a third which is great for firefox users – using the firebug extension, we can use flash’s externalInterface class to add log entries to firebugs console. If you have firebug installed click on the swf below which will start logging data to the console window. You can download the source here.
