3 Web Page
Inspection

3.1 Web Page Structure View

The Web Page Structure View shows the hierarchical structure of web pages created for an Intershop application.

In order to use this view, you need to link it (note the 'Link with Editor' toolbar button) with a browser (editor) which displays a the web page.

Note

The view analyzes the source code and parses it to detect template markers.

Ensure that the property intershop.template.PrintTemplateMarker in IntershopSuite/share/system/config/cluster/appserver.properties is set to true.


If so, this view helps the developer to analyze pages and allows to quickly navigate to affected artifacts.

This view's underlying model is not restricted to ISML templates. Instead it would accept any well-formed pairs of:

<!-- BEGIN $ELEMENT_TYPE$ $QUALIFIED_ELEMENT_NAME$ -->

<!-- END $ELEMENT_TYPE$ $QUALIFIED_ELEMENT_NAME$ -->

It may be advantageous if, e.g., affected pagelet model artifacts are inserted in this manner.

3.1.1 Usage of the Web Page Structure View

  1. From the menu select Run | Run as..| Open Start Node in Browser..

    Alternatively, click the toolbar button to opena browser inside the IStudio. 
  2. Enter a valid URL denoting an Intershop page.
  3. Open the Web Page Structure VIew.
    Window | Show View | Other...
  4. In the view's toolbar toggle the Sync with Editor button .
    This syncronizes both the Web Page Structure View and the browser.
