About the Previewer

Tizen Studio provides a previewer window for instantly previewing the entire look and feel of the application.

The previewer for HTML and CSS is a tool that can check the content of a file in the browser. All changes made in the HTML and CSS file editor are automatically reflected in the previewer.

The following limitations apply to the HTML previewer:

  • The Device API cannot be run in the emulator.
  • Some network environments do not support live editing.

Using the HTML and CSS Previewer

To use the HTML and CSS previewer:

  1. In the Project Explorer view, right-click an HTML or CSS file.
  2. In the context menu, select Preview (or use the hotkey Ctrl + 4).

You can configure the previewer to suit your own preferences.

You can set the preview in Window > Preferences > Tizen Studio > Web > Live Editing.

NoteThe previewer is based on the Google Chrome™ browser.

The CSS preview can differ from the actual product. It allows you to see the overall outline.

Some selectors and elements do not work on the CSS previewer.
