the solution is to setup the RemoteDebuggingHost and RemoteDebuggingPort inside a WebConfig instance that will be passed to WebCore.Initialize method, the inspector could then been accessed by another browser by specifing the configured ip and port, in my case the ip is and the port is 8001 (,

on my application, I need to launch the inspector from my WinForm Awesomium browser, so I wrotte another WinForm that recieve the IP and Port as arguments and dispay it on Awesomium WebControl,

hope this help others developers.

It worked ... almost. The debugging window is tiny. What am I missing? alt text

Ditto! I did manage to get the view to grow but only after opening up the inspector and giving assigning heights from the HTML element all the way down the dom toward the inspect panels. I wonder if there's a setting that will help get around this?

Simpler: Set the iframe w/ id inspector_frame to a custom defined height - the default height of 100% doesn't do much for us :)

Any way that we can get at the source for the debugger to change this? Getting pretty sick of manually changing this everytime i reload the page.

Everything is inside of inspector.pak. It's using some type of verification -- I read somewhere that if you add spaces to the file, you need to remove them from somewhere else to keep the size consistent. It'll also re-pull the file from the location in the GAC randomly.

If you're hosting it yourself, it may be easier to create a user style sheet, or just modify it after loading.

Hi! The simplest way I found to enlarge window is open the inspector in Chrome, then use Chrome Inspector (CTRL+I) and in Console Window type:$("#inspector_frame").css('height','500px'); this will enlarge the Awesomium Inspector window and you can close the Chrome inspector itself after this. :)

smartech .. when i follow your process it shows me in firefox a webpage saying "All systems online.To get started inspecting WebViews, click one of the links to the left." but there was not any active websession.... i am using webcontorl i am doing something like this.

  private void InitializeComponent()
             this.components = new System.ComponentModel.Container();
             WebConfig webC = new WebConfig();
             webC.RemoteDebuggingPort = 12345;
             webC.RemoteDebuggingHost = "";
         Awesomium.Core.WebPreferences webPreferences1 = new Awesomium.Core.WebPreferences(true);
         this.wb = new Awesomium.Windows.Forms.WebControl(this.components);
         this.webSessionProvider1 = new Awesomium.Windows.Forms.WebSessionProvider(this.components);
         // wb
         this.wb.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
         this.wb.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
         this.wb.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(1284, 1006);
         this.wb.SynchronousMessageTimeout = 0;
         this.wb.TabIndex = 0;
         this.wb.ViewType = Awesomium.Core.WebViewType.Offscreen;
         // webSessionProvider1
         webPreferences1.CustomCSS = "::-webkit-scrollbar { visibility: hidden; }";
         webPreferences1.WebAudio = false;

            this.webSessionProvider1.Preferences = webPreferences1;

Use Chrome. I think remote Debugging only works with Chrome.

Handle the `ConsoleMessage` event. This is where JavaScript console messages are currently propagated.

10|1100 characters needed characters left
 using System.Diagnostics;
 private void Awesomium_Windows_Forms_WebControl_ConsoleMessage(object sender, ConsoleMessageEventArgs e)
    Debug.Print("{0} at {1}: {2} at '{3}'", e.EventName, e.LineNumber, e.Message, e.Source);
