Being new to Campaign I am having trouble debugging JS code In Campaign..

I have a general question on the debugging aspect of the Code ( javascript )

  1. How to see the XML that is being returned . I tried doing logInfo( response ) in the below code, but nothing is shown

var query = xtk.queryDef.create( 
  <queryDef schema="nms:recipient" operation="get">   
    <select>     
      <node expr="@firstName"/>     
      <node expr="@lastName"/>     
      <node expr="@email"/>   
    </select>       
  </queryDef>)

var response = query.ExecuteQuery()
lofInfo( response.recipient ); =>  shows nothing

2. What are the tips/guidelines  for debugging the javascirpt code  in Campaign ?  how do the experts do it   🙂

cheers

Hi,

Use below syntax:

var query = xtk.queryDef.create(
  <queryDef schema="nms:recipient" operation="get">  
    <select>    
      <node expr="@firstName"/>    
      <node expr="@lastName"/>    
      <node expr="@email"/>  
    </select>      
  </queryDef>)

var response = query.ExecuteQuery()

logInfo("response: "+ response.toXMLString());

Also if your output has more than one row then use for each loop.

for each( var res in response){

logInfo("response: "+ response.toXMLString());

}

Thanks.

hi,

logInfo( response.@firstName) will give log or for that matter any attribute you used in select node

use external debugger tools for the syntax and campaign does not have Linting to identify potential errors
