SEVERE BUG: unable to stop script execution in infinite loop

After accidentally creating an infinite loop condition in a JScript script, I found that it was impossible to halt the script - resulting in having to kill TDM and losing work on the script. This is a terrible bug that should be fixed immediately.

It’s hard to overstate how absolutely infuriating this is - trying to debug a script mysteriously hanging up and having no way to break into it, but instead having to kill the TDM process and start over again.

Hi,

thank you. I created new change request: CR#104061

BTW: for longer scripts I recommend you to use Eclipse for script creation and manual Copy&Paste from Eclipse to TDM and vice versa. Eclipse has great JavaScript editor that might help you to develop scripts.

Regards,

Vaclav
