Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

When working on a design (or JavaScript code, in some cases), there are a handful of common changes that people will want to make to the attributes of an DOM node.

2. Users & use cases

See the effect of a class

When tracking down styling issues, especially on elements with multiple classes applied to them, it can be useful to visually see the effect that a given class is having on an element. A convenient mechanism for toggling a class on an element is a good way to accomplish this.

Set an ID on an element

JavaScript developers often have collections of functions built up that are designed to take elements or element IDs. By being able to quickly set an ID on an element, these developers will have a handle they can pass into their functions.

4. Requirements

  1. Easily toggle classes or add classes to an element
  2. Add an ID to the element


  1. Be able to change any attributes on the element
  2. Be able to change the text within the element
  3. Be able to change the element's tag


This feature is not concerned with making structural changes to the document.

Stage 2: Design

5. Functional specification


6. User experience design

Some discussion of putting this functionality in the Infobar occurred on dev-apps-firefox. DevTools/Features/RichInfobar was created along those lines, but broken up and replaced by this page and DevTools/Features/PseudoClassLock.
