parameters
location
Location

Location to continue to.

targetCallFrames
string
Allowed Values: any, current

Debugger.disable

Disables debugger for given page.

Debugger.enable

Enables debugger for the given page. Clients should not assume that the debugging has been enabled until the result for this command is received.

parameters
maxScriptsCacheSize
number

The maximum size in bytes of collected scripts (not referenced by other heap objects) the debugger can hold. Puts no limit if parameter is omitted.

Experimental
Return Object
debuggerId
Runtime.UniqueDebuggerId

Unique identifier of the debugger.

Experimental

Debugger.evaluateOnCallFrame

Evaluates expression on a given call frame.

parameters
callFrameId
CallFrameId

Call frame identifier to evaluate on.

expression
string

Expression to evaluate.

objectGroup
string

String object group name to put result into (allows rapid releasing resulting object handles using releaseObjectGroup).

includeCommandLineAPI
boolean

Specifies whether command line API should be available to the evaluated expression, defaults to false.

silent
boolean

In silent mode exceptions thrown during evaluation are not reported and do not pause execution. Overrides setPauseOnException state.

returnByValue
boolean

Whether the result is expected to be a JSON object that should be sent by value.

generatePreview
boolean

Whether preview should be generated for the result.

Experimental
throwOnSideEffect
boolean

Whether to throw an exception if side effect cannot be ruled out during evaluation.

timeout
Runtime.TimeDelta

Terminate execution after timing out (number of milliseconds).

Experimental
Return Object
result
Runtime.RemoteObject

Object wrapper for the evaluation result.

exceptionDetails
Runtime.ExceptionDetails

Exception details.

Debugger.getPossibleBreakpoints

Returns possible locations for breakpoint. scriptId in start and end range locations should be the same.

parameters
start
Location

Start of range to search possible breakpoint locations in.

end
Location

End of range to search possible breakpoint locations in (excluding). When not specified, end of scripts is used as end of range.

restrictToFunction
boolean

Only consider locations which are in the same (non-nested) function as start.

Return Object
locations
array[ BreakLocation ]

List of the possible breakpoint locations.

Debugger.getScriptSource

Returns source for the script with given id.

parameters
scriptId
Runtime.ScriptId

Id of the script to get source for.

Return Object
scriptSource
string

Script source (empty in case of Wasm bytecode).

bytecode
string

Wasm bytecode. (Encoded as a base64 string when passed over JSON)

Debugger.pause

Stops on the next JavaScript statement.

Debugger.removeBreakpoint

Removes JavaScript breakpoint.

parameters
breakpointId
BreakpointId

Debugger.restartFrame

Restarts particular call frame from the beginning. The old, deprecated behavior of restartFrame is to stay paused and allow further CDP commands after a restart was scheduled. This can cause problems with restarting, so we now continue execution immediatly after it has been scheduled until we reach the beginning of the restarted frame.

To stay back-wards compatible, restartFrame now expects a mode parameter to be present. If the mode parameter is missing, restartFrame errors out.

The various return values are deprecated and callFrames is always empty. Use the call frames from the Debugger#paused events instead, that fires once V8 pauses at the beginning of the restarted function.

parameters
callFrameId
CallFrameId

Call frame identifier to evaluate on.

mode
string

The mode parameter must be present and set to 'StepInto', otherwise restartFrame will error out.

Allowed Values: StepInto

Debugger.resume

Resumes JavaScript execution.

parameters
terminateOnResume
boolean

Set to true to terminate execution upon resuming execution. In contrast to Runtime.terminateExecution, this will allows to execute further JavaScript (i.e. via evaluation) until execution of the paused code is actually resumed, at which point termination is triggered. If execution is currently not paused, this parameter has no effect.

Debugger.searchInContent

Searches for given string in script content.

parameters
scriptId
Runtime.ScriptId

Id of the script to search in.

query

Debugger.setScriptSource
