    Lightbulb Unanswered: Variable Name And Value Properties

    I use a lot of debug statements in VBScript code when I'm debugging. For example

    response.write("varTestVariable = " & varTestVariable & "<BR>")

    This is a lot of typing and I almost always forget one quote or another. So I thought creating a sub to do this with less typing would be great. I created the following sub.

    Sub Debug(pasVariable)
    response.write(pasVariable.text & " = " & pasVariable & "<BR>")
    End Sub

    What I would like to do is first display the variable name and then its value. My question is is there any way to get the text property of a variable in VBScript in addition to the value property? If I can get this, I only need to type in the variable name. Otherwise I need to do more typing.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I really don't think you can do it unfortunately.... I could be wrong but I don't think so...

    Good idea though.
