  1. Ruler tool

    This feature would add a ruler tool to the DOM Explorer which would be used to draw an arbitrary ruler on the page to measure the distance between two points.

    Proposed Design
    - New command on the DOM Explorer
    - Only one ruler can be drawn on the page at a time
    - Activating the command clears the previous ruler from the page and sets the mouse to draw mode where the first click places the first point and then draws a line to the current mouse pointer location. While moving the mouse cursor, a label should be drawn next…

        • Locals in Async callstacks

          This feature would add the ability to view locals when changing the debugger context to an async frame.

          Proposed Design
          - The content would be read only (more like a snapshot)
          - The content would only include to items on the stack for that frame (not all globals)

          • Display AppCache results in network inspector

            This feature raises the visibility of requests that hit the AppCache by explicitly calling them out as AppCache hits.

            - The body of responses coming from the cache will be tag as "coming from AppCache" in the response body tab

              • Copy Data URI as Image

                This feature would add a "Copy image" context menu to any CSS value that contained a base64 encoded image (in a data URI). The command would be used to decode and copy the image to the clipboard where it could be posted into another application.

                Proposed Design
                - New context menu item "Copy &image" to be enabled for any CSS properties in any of the styles views that contain a data URI
                - A RegEx (TBD) will be used to detect a data URI (and the bounds of it)
                - The command will decode the image (based on the media…

                • Select, copy & paste multiple CSS rules and properties

                  This feature would enable the selection of multiple rules and or properties in the styles view of the DOM Explorer. A set of actions (copy. enable, disable, delete, etc.) could then be applied to all of the selected items at once.

                  Proposed Design
                  - Enable shift (first and last) and ctrl (individual item) multi selection in the styles views
                  - In multi select mode only the following commands would be enabled: copy. enable, disable, and delete

                  • Object mutation breakpoints

                    This feature would add the ability to set a breakpoint that will break at a JavaScript statement that is mutating an object. The mutation can be either setting the value of the object or changing the value of a property of the object.

                    Proposed Design
                    - Context menu "break on mutation"
                    - Managed through the breakpoint window
                    - Will not be persisted across navigations (no persisted identity)

                    • Quick show and hide elements

                      This feature would add a command to toggle the selected element between display:none and it's default display setting.

                      Proposed Design
                      - Toggle via a context menu "Hide/Show element" and a keyboard shortcut ('H') the visibility of an item
                      - This would set the display:none via the style attribute
                      - If there is already a style attribute with display:none, it should be remembered and restored when toggled

                      • Hover states context menu

                        This feature would add a new context menu item to set an element in the DOM Explorer so that :hover rules are applied.

                        - A new checkbox context menu item on the DOM Tree ("Force :&hover state") for enabling hover (the most common pseudo state)
                        - State should match the pseudo checkbox state

                                        • Source links for console.trace

                                          This feature would make the source locations in console.trace hyperlinks that navigate the debugger.

                                          - Source locations in console.trace appear as hyperlinks that navigate the debugger to the source location
