slayeroffice - web experiments gone horribly awry

02.18.2004 - Hidden Field Modifier

One of the projects I'm involved with at work uses a fair number of hidden fields within it's process to define actions that the backend scripts should take. I often find myself sifting through the HTML source in order to find out what the server variables that have been set into those fields are, or javascript:'ing from the URL bar to find their values or change them.

That became rather tedious, so I've written a favelet to manage it.

The "Hidden Field Modifier" will list all of the hidden fields for every form on a page along with their current values and allow you to change them. It works in Mozilla, Firefox and MSIE6 and has been tested under Win2k and XP.

Feel free to let me know if you find any problems with it or if you've got an idea to extend its functionality. Right click the following link and select "Add to Favorites" or "Bookmark this Link" depending on your browser of choice.
