Amazing JavaScript Port Of ColdFusion's CFDump Tag

By on

Shuns, from down under, sent me a link to a JavaScript method "Dump()" that he wrote. It is pretty darn fantastic and looks and feels just like the ColdFusion CFDump tag that we have all come to love. Anyway, check it out when you get a chance; it's freakin' sweeeet!

Chris,

You would get this type of error when you have circular looping. Not sure how it would happen in a JSON return value unless you had something like a nested structure referring to its parent.

The same would happen in a CFDump call with circular references.

This is just theory, you should contact the site for support.

Im not sure about JSON; if it's a nutual Javascript object then it will dump fine. I recently updated it aswell to allow for dom elements so get the latest version if you require this.
