Android Question What replaces log() ?

I searched the forum to no avail. Last time I worked with B4A it was 6.x and I used log() to send messages to the message pane.

I try to run older code in the IDE, and I am told it is deprecated. Anything replaces it ?

Thank you in advance.

You are right. Log itself does not seem to be deprecated. I was confused by this message :

It is recommended to switch to the default debugger (Tools - IDE Options).

It seems that you are using the 'legacy debugger'.


You should uncheck it!
