3 ways to print javascript Object

3 ways to print javascript Object

It is always helpful to print Javascript Objects on screen. Here I use ‘click’ event as object, to use 3 ways to print out. Actually any object can simulate.

  1. print objects(associate array) in a HTMl div.
  2. print objects in console
  3. alert – popup window

The browsers work differently:

  • For FF, all 3 ways work.
  • For Chrome, 1,2 works.
  • For IE, 1 works.
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/jsapi"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	google.load("jquery", "1.4.2");
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$('#div1').bind('click', function(e) {
 $('#div1').append(e.type).css('color', 'red');
 // print in screen.
 var output = '';
 for (property in e) {
  output += property + ': ' + e[property]+"; <br>\n";
 // print in FF
 // alert.
<div id="div1">DIV event: </div>
<div id="div2"></div>

So FF’s console is the best solution for debug purpose. A useful article can be found at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/957537/how-can-i-print-a-javascript-object
