Eventbug Rising

Honza and I have been working on a new Event panel for Firebug, based on the work by Olli “smaug” Pettay and the Firefox team over on BugĀ 448602. The events panel will list all of the event handlers on the page grouped by event type. For each event type you can open up to see the elements the listeners are bound to and summary of the function source. The attributes for capturing and Allows-Untrusted are also listed.

The element is link to HTML panel. If you hover on the element in the event panel the corresponding element in the page is highlighted. The function is linked to the Script panel so if you click on it you can, for example, set a breakpoint.

Here is a sneak peak at the UI:


At this time we don’t know what version of Firefox will support this feature, but you can guess that we are begging whenever we get a chance ;-).


Please followup in the newsgroup.
