Hi guys,

I'm new to SilverStripe and i can't seems to get the debugging working.

So far i've done
/mysite/_config/config.yml

Director:   environment_type: 'dev'

in code

Debug::show($data);

url

http://someUrl/page?isDev=1
http://someUrl/page?debug=1
http://someUrl/page?dev=1

But i can't seem to get it to work.
am i missing?

Also should I be expecting something on the screen?

Hi Raver0124,

The key might be...

"in code... Debug::show($data);"

It depends where - if your code isn't executed then it will never show output. I tend to place this in the page controller init of the page I'm looking to check debug output is working as that part is always called.

Hi Swaiba,

Thank you for your reply, i did further testing and it seems the problem is at

Director: environment_type: 'dev'

I might not be declaring at the right place.
If I remove the if condition in the debug.php (under function show()), then it works.

"/mysite/_config/config.yml"
Is this the correct place to declare this?

To be sure to be sure to be sure add this to your _Config.php

Director::set_environment_type('dev');

Thank you for your reply again,
Now i'm getting following error

[User Deprecated] DataObjectDecorator is deprecated. DataObjectDecorator is deprecated. Use DataExtension instead. Called from ReflectionClass->newInstance.

hmmm weird, I'm not using any reflection in this class.
any idea?

I'll try debug in details tomorrow
