TypeError: undefined is not a function

when something goes wrong with my javascript/jquery  I usually get something like  "TypeError: undefined is not a function" or some other generic error message.  "something went wrong".

I can normally debug these issues pretty quickly though sometime it takes a bit of time as sometimes no idea of where or what exactly the error/issue is.

The error information I get usually points to a line say the  Jquery file when the issue is most certainly in my code.  

Long question short is there a way of getting more description error messages or at least pointing me in a better direction .

Not really, an error in one bit of code may only shows it face in another bit of code, especially when dealing with jQuery

I don't know what you use to track these "nested" errors but Chrome Dev Tools gives you a big help.
For instance, Stack Tracing the error might very very useful in the case you describe.

Have a look here (but don't miss the whole article)
