Hey,
I have some problem with the web site that I built and I wanted to know if there's a tool/app that lists the different applets, scripts, pages that are loading.
The thing is that the page with all the "stuff" in it loads too fast to see what the snag (or problematic element) is.

thanks,
Oren.

I'm not sure I got your problem right, but maybe you should try LinkBot, it shows you everything linked to your files, back and forth, and even files that just sit there, not being linked to anything at all.

Hope it helps.

Thanks,
Does LinkBot display the "elements" in the order that they are loaded?

The problem is that most of these "elements" load except for some that don't, and I have no clue which ones didn't load or why.

Please explain that a bit. If I understand you correctly, it should be obvious from missing text, images, or functionality which files aren't loaded.

It's a help system that loads several different files. It loads a JAR file Java applet, various .js files, and seems to complete loading. Then, when I look at the different elements in the system, I see that the search pane shows a list of values (linked to .htms) instead of displaying a search bar (like it's supposed to).

What I really need is a tool that would report which file didn't load correctly.
Thanks again.

I'm affraid LinkBot would not solve your problem, it only looks for broken or missing links in HTML files.
