A perspective will open containing a single view – the left side of the view provides some control windows, while the right side contains a browser object.
In the DOM Controls tab, specify a location for the browser and press Enter to change the contents of the browser. For that particular page, options are provided to change the background color, or insert new elements into the DOM. The entire DOM tree can be retrieved and will be populated into the tree view. From the DOM Tree control, specific nodes can be removed.
At the bottom of the left hand side, the Node Properties tables will show the properties for any node on the tree. By selecting nodes in the DOM Tree, you can view the node attributes in the table. In addition, by selecting the Monitor mouseover Event, the Node Properties will be updated as the mouse moves over elements on a browser page.
In the DOM Queries tab, you can perform queries against the content of the DOM. Query results are displayed in the Elements list. Selecting lines in the elements list will also update the node properties at the bottom left of the view.
The Node Properties displays the properties of various objects in the DOM. The value field for each of the properties is editable, so you can modify the DOM contents using this table. You cannot add or remove properties from a node using this sample. Changes to the property values are immediately reflected on the browser page.
