Simple Debug Message Window

About

This code was authored by Oliver Steele.

This is a simple inline message window, which hugs the foot of the page and records the last N messages.

It may be moved to the left or right side of the screen, and new content added to it via a simple call:

  gMessageWindow.output("Loaded message window...");

Demo

This page itself is a demo, clicking on any of the following links will output the URL to the window:

These messages were hooked up because they have the class message, with the following code:


    $("a.message").click(function() {
        gMessageWindow.output($(this).attr('href'));
        return false;
     })

You may also toggle the visibility of the message window.
