Hi,

I managed to sample a code and able to obtain an array of the x and y values for the chart i.e.  SPListItemCollection itemColl = list.GetItems(query);
How do I debug ( similar to debug.print in VBA  immediate window e.g. ?sales(1)  * ) by printing out an element of the array to either Output / Immediate window in Visual Studio 2012 using C#?

The series in the list are:
Product:        P1   P2   P3 .....
Sales:            50  100  150

the 1st element of the array will be P1, 50.

--------------------------------------------------------------
*The VBA code is something along this line:
Option Explicit
Option Base 1 ' start indexing array elements at 1
Dim sales() As String
Dim item As Variant

and the array is ( 50, 100, 150 )
.....Each item In sales ..........
?sales(1) = 50
?sales(2) = 100


Thank you.

Hi,
you will have to attach to the W3P process of your SharePoint web app and use
System.Diagnostics.Debug.Write or
System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine
to print to the immediate window.

I do not agree with the Deletion.
The original request has been for a resource to start development. This request has been fulfilled as the creator made it to develop the solution.
Then he asked the question for debugging - which is an extension of the original one.
Therefore imho the first answer can be seen as successful.

Agree with Rainer. It has been a while and  was looking on another aspect of a project and missed closing this case. Will be happy to take the first answer as good. Regards.
