Extracting The Values Of All Forms On The Page

· ·
Free Resource
This is a simple piece of javascript intended to be run from Firebug or as a bookmarklet which extracts all the name : value pairs from forms on the page and pops up a new window listing them.

It's not very well written, and doesn't yet handle any non input form elements, but it will do for now. :-)

var displayWindow = window.open();

function showFormValues(form ) { 
'); var formElements = form.getElementsByTagName('input'); for (var i = 0; i < formElements.length; i++){ var element = formElements[i]; displayWindow.document.write(element.name + ' : ' + element.value + '
');}} Array.forEach(document.forms, showFormValues);
