How to use Flutter's Widget Inspector in Visual Studio Code?

Issue

How do you use the Flutter Widget Inspector introduced in VSCode and now enabled? When I debug the app from the IDE or Terminal, nothing happens when I click on any widget in the iOS simulator. I could not find any info on VSCode from Google.

I am on MacOS Sierra.

Solution

When debugging, run command Flutter: Inspect Widget, then click on the UI/Widget, it will auto lead you to the code which generates the widget. It only works in debugging mode and the command is not available until the app is loaded in debug.
