A handy trick and addon for your Internet Explorer - 03/31/02 02:34 PM

Have you ever wanted to view the generated page's source rather than the actual source? What do I mean? Like say there's a script which writes out source to be displayed - and you want to see it's output. Well then, here's a trick invented by my JavaScript guru of a dad.

Create a Internet shortcut in your favorites with the following (make sure it's just 1 line):

Quote:
Code:
javascript:var myWin=window.open("","myWin","width=800,height=600,scrollbars,resizable");
var myStr=document.documentElement.outerHTML;
myStr=myStr.replace(/\</g,"<").replace(/\>/g,">").replace(/\r\n/g,"
");
myWin.document.open();
myWin.document.write(myStr);
myWin.document.close();


Then anytime you want to see a page's genereated source, click on that favorite and a page will popup with it.

Try this:

Create an internet shortcut to anything you want. Go to the shortcut and right-click and hit properties. Paste the following to replace the original URL. Click Ok.
