    I'd like to be able to decode/inspect websocket messages (messages are 20-byte binary) so that each message can appear in a human readable way.  We basically just want to extend/add a custom websocket inspector which will show the selected message after it's been custom "decoded".  I have purchased Debugging with Fiddler Second Edition, but don't see any guidance for implementing a custom Websockets inspector.

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    For the time being you could use the "Inspect as Response" button in the WebSocket tab to send the message to the Web Sessions list. There you could inspect it with a custom inspector.

    Howdy, Jim! Thanks for your support of my book! This new topic isn't in the current edition of the book, but it will be covered in the next update to the ebook. 

    To enable your extension to view WebSocket traffic, write an inspector which implements the IResponseInspector2 and IWSMInspector interfaces. This latter interface has one method, AssignMessage(WebSocketMessage oWSM); your code should inspect the message when this method is called.
