JavaScript Validator

EditRocket provides a JavaScript validator that uses the javascriptlint validation tool ( This robust tool is based on the JavaScript engine for the Firefox browser.

The JavaScript validator checks coding syntax for errors and also warns against questionable coding practices.

EditRocket provides a listing of any errors returned from the JS validator, and gives the user the ability to jump to the line number of the error in the JavaScript code with the click of a button.

The JS validator can be launched via the Tools - JavaScript - Validator menu option, via the JavaScript sidekick validator button, or via the right-click menu in the JavaScript submenu that displays when right-clicking inside a JavaScript tab.

If no code is highlighted in the editor, the validator will validate the entire editor contents. If code is highlighted, only the highlighted code will be validated.

Listed below is an image of the JavaScript Validator.
