Errors happen to the best of us. Even a single misplaced keystroke can crash the script you have been slaving over for hours.

LiveCode has 3 ways to handle error messages:

  • inline – errors should be output to the browser
    set the errorMode to "inline"
  • stderr – errors should be written out to stderr
    set the errorMode to "stderr"
  • quiet – output nothing when an error occurs
    set the errorMode to "quiet"


  • For security purposes, you should always set the errorMode to quiet on live applications and scripts as it can help prevent a script getting hacked.
  • Test often
  • Take a break and relax – it does noone any good when spend countless hours slaving in front of computer screen
