Debug Tool Window: Elements Tab
In this tab, view the HTML source code that implements the active browser page and its HTML DOM structure. Any changes made to the page through the browser are immediately reflected in the tab.
To Have the Tab Displayed:
- Make sure you are using the Chrome browser for debugging.
Make sure the JetBrains Chrome Extension is installed in your Chrome browser.
The extension is installed when you first initiate a debugging session and follow the dedicated link provided by WebStorm. For details, see Using JetBrains Chrome Extension.
- Make sure the LiveEdit plugin is enabled. The plugin is bundled with WebStorm and activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
The Structure, Text, and Scripts Panes
The Structure pane shows the HTML DOM structure of the page that is currently active in the browser. The structure is updated dynamically according to the changes made on the page.
