What is it

Inspector Gadget is a small library that allows you to search for DisplayObjects in a Flex application's using XPATH expressions.

How does it work

First inspector gadget walks the application's DOM tree - using an implementation based on FxSpy - and builds up an intermediary XML representation of the DOM. Then it uses xpath-as3 to apply an xpath expression against that internal XML representation. If there is a match then we map the matching xml node back to the corresponding DisplayObject in the application, based on the DisplayObject's uid.

Why would you need it

The main motivator for creating this library was to expand the element selection capabilities in sfapi, a tool which allows automated testing of flex applications using the Selenium testing framework.
