Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

I tested on 2 different computers, but i wasn't able to open the Web Inspector in Google Chrome. I entered the url http://myPlaybookIp:1337 but my Chrome couldn't load the web inspector. I tested the same url in Firefox/IE, the list of loaded pages is shown, but the web inspector is rendered awfully.

 

Is it a known issue or it just happends only to me?

 

Thanks

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

Were you trying to use Web Inspector for WebWorks or the Browser?

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

i tried Webworks for Tablet.

 

I turned on Web Inspector in Playbook WebBrowser and used bbwp.exe with "-d" option.

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

I've just tested with Chrome and it worked.
My advice: Use a different profile for mobile development, with only a minimum set of extensions installed in case one of them is not playing nice.

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

Now i tested Playbook's Browser with these steps:

 

- Open Browser on Playbook.

- Turn on Web Inspector option.

- Enter my password

- Navigate to www.google.com

- On my Desktop, i open http://myPlaybookIP on  Firefox , i can see the www.google.com url, i click on that, web inspector is loaded but is not rendered correctly.

- On my Desktop i open http://myPlaybookIP on  Google Chrome, i have "The requested URL could not be retrieved Error.

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

Are you trying to debug your Playbook app using Google Chrome on your Desktop? If so i hope you have followed the steps below:

 

  1. Your Playbook is in development mode.
  2. Installed the App with -d command
  3. Opened up the app.
  4. Navigate to http://playbookip:1337/

This will definitely help to debug the application with Google Chrome.

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

Hey Peace,

 

How are you doing? I hope all is well. 

 

I'm not sure if you are still facing the issue. 

 

But in any case you still are, WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS with AIR SDK 3.0,Web Inspector is not fully funtional using Chrome v14+ and PlayBook 1.0.7. I've also noticed the same issue using Firefox. This is an issue we have fixed in the next release of the Tablet OS. The current workaround is to use the Safari Browser.

 

 

Let me know if you still have any questions, and I will be happy to help you out.

 

Siincerely,

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

This is the workaround we've been using with WebWorks for Smartphone 2.3.1.5 but Apple has just upgraded safari to version 6, and Safari now no longer works with web inspector. We basically can no longer use web inspector.

Re: Unable to access Web Inspector from Google Chrome

I've just found out how to revert back to Safai 5.1.7:

 

http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/57916/how-do-you-remove-safari-6-on-mac-os-x-10-7-4

 

The answer is the one that starts "To downgrade Safari 6 on OS X Lion (10.7.4) to Safari 5.1.7:" and has +100 against it. I've just done it and now have the web inspector working again. Apparently Blackberry OS 7.1 fixes the web inspector problem with both Chrome >14 and Safari 6.
