    Is there a way to inspect the DOM of an AppBuilder built app on Windows Phone using the emulator (not the simulator) or the physical device?

     We want to see about fixing a few issues that we see on Windows Phone 8.1.  But I want to make sure I can inspect the DOM. 

     I am using the Windows Client and launched the Emulator but there is no way to inspect the DOM this way.

    I tried using Visual Studio 2013 and the AppBuilder extension, but I could not figure out how to inspect the DOM this way. I tried using Visual Studio and going under the Debug and tried looking at the DOM option., but it seems it is not connected to the emulator.

     Any ideas on how to do this?  Kind of like Android and iOS do?

    Hello Carlos,

    Thank you for contacting us about this. At this stage, AppBuilder doesn't provide an out of the box solution for debugging Windows Phone applications. However, I believe that you will find just what you need using Weinre instead. This remote web inspector allows you to debug mobile and hybrid applications directly on the devices and the good news is that, it works with Internet Explorer.

    There are even some articles we have wrote on the matter, which might come handy. Here they are:
     - Remote Debugging Icenium (AppBuilder) Apps With Weirne
     - A Concise Guider to Remote Debugging on iOS, Android and Windows Phone
     - Mobile Debugging Tips

    I hope this helps.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
