HOW TO access JavaScript Console, DOM Explorer in Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8


In Jeff Brand's article explaining the Simulator in Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8, he talks about the DOM Explorer & JavaScript Console. I was happy to know about these features because unlike the Developer Tools for Internet Explorer (F12 shortcut key) which can be used to debug web applications I had not come across anything similar to debug a Windows 8 Metro app after it has started.

The article doesn't explicitly mention how to access these options.


I found that after you run the app (F5), these options are present under the Debug > Windows menu item.

I however miss a IE Developer Tools Network tab equivalent. Using a separate HTTP debugging tool like Fiddler tool appears to be the only way to monitor network traffic when you're building a Windows 8 Store app that uses Web-based APIs.

As far as I can tell, the DOM Explorer & JavaScript Console are only available in Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8, not in the ones for Web or desktop. Don't know about the full blown versions.
