Improved XForms Inspector

NOTE: This page describes an Orbeon Forms project, not a feature which is currently part of Orbeon Forms.


The Orbeon Forms XForms Inspector is a great tool for developers, but it remains very limited. A lot can be done to improve it.


  • live editing of instances (with Code Mirror)
  • "always on" in dev mode
    • implemented in a dialog
    • accessible w/ keyboard shortcut
  • view actions/events that ran for last user action
  • view MIPs
  • submission "inspector"
    • call a submission
    • maybe integrate Form Builder service editor or similar
  • view/edit given action handler
  • view variables
  • view live control properties
