New Inspector

Annoyed that Fiddler doesn't offer syntax-specific highlighting of HTML, JScript, CSS, and XML? Try the new SyntaxView inspector.

There are plenty of limitations, but it should be stable and hopefully useful. Please let me know what you think!


  • This is a Good Thing(tm), Eric!

    I did notice right away that the highlighting only works when you change to the SyntaxView tab.

    If you are on the SyntaxView tab and then navigate to the row for a different HTML GET, the syntax highlighting does not take effect.

    Navigating to another tab and then back to SyntaxView shows the syntax in all its colour glory.

  • Whups! I take that first comment back.

    That behaviour only happened if I used Fiddler 1.1.x.y with the new SyntaxView.

    Upgrading to the current Fiddler 1.2 makes the navigation and syntax highlighting work as expected!

  • Interesting. Thanks for the update-- That actually makes sense. It has to do with a change I made to the Inspectors interface a while back. In 1.1.9.? and later, first the headers are set, then the body. In older versions, I set the body first, then the headers. That was lame, so I changed it.
