Suggested improvement to code mode error reporting

Lex Clay shared this idea 11 months ago

Hi All,

When using code mode, if there are any syntax errors (missing braces, erroneous .'s or ,'s etc) the output in the console can make identifying the location of the error a little challenging. I created a forced error as an example...If there's any way to include the originating line in the output that would be a real help. Also a search bar would be beneficial. The browser search function doesn't search the entire scrollable area of the code.
