DOM Panel

Inside the DOM Panel you get information about all the different DOM properties and methods. For objects and arrays it offers a expandable tree view. Clicking on them limits the display of the DOM tree to these objects resp. arrays and shows the current element path as breadcrumb list inside the Panel Toolbar. Clicking on a function jumps to it inside the Script Panel.

Options Mini Menu

The Options Mini Menu offers toggling the display of user-defined properties and functions, DOM properties, functions and constants and lets you refresh the list.

Panel Toolbar

Element Path

The path from the currently selected element up to window is shown as breadcrumb list inside the Panel Toolbar. Clicking on one of the items displays the contents of the appropriate property of the DOM tree. Right-clicking on the Panel Toolbar offers an option for refreshing the displayed data.

Color Codes

Different color codes let you distinguish between the different types of variables and improve readability. Here they are in detail:

Format Description
Bold Black Objects
Black DOM objects
get in gray "Getter" functions
Bold green User functions
Green DOM functions
Bold Red Constructor functions


Like in the Console, CSS and HTML Panel variables are auto-completed while typing. This enhances productivity and supports you making changes.


Note that localStorage is just an object so you can create, view, and edit it in the DOM view.
