When writing modules, especially in the "hook_form _alter" hook, I find myself in the same situation many times:

I want to control some $form fields and I'm searching the field ID, the right attribute convention, etc.

I'm trying to print all the fields and their attributes to the output page so I could do that every time I need information about a form fields.

  1. How can I print all the fields complete attributes?
  2. I need to stick it temporarily in the page - how can I send the details to the page (I don't know what are the fields ID's...)?

Add in hook_form_alte function dsm($form); and refresh your form page, you will get message with structured info.
