It will be nice that FD2 has a Project panel where you can define Flash project, its compiler preferences and things like that.

Sure, there are already several MTASC/Swfmill UIs that could inspire a nicely integrated project panel.

:!: Note that when you'll define additional classpath in this (future) project panel, it will be possible to add them to the ASCompletion engine classpathes.

Someone should start a functionality draft.

Let's come up a list of possible properties for a FlashProject

1. Project folder location
2. Reference pathes
3. Builder, which can incorporate a series of MTASC building instructions, in case this project requires multiple SWF generation.
4. Project Builder Modes (like Debug and Release, let's say Release version would remove all the comments and traces. Basically it is a different Builder profile)
5. Start up Flash.

Great, that's what I was thinking of!

There could be more build instructions like:
- FlashCommand,
- SWFMILL,
- free command.

:!: Something nice would be to be able to define project variables that could be used in the build instructions.

Perhaps it would be easier if we could just call an ANT script to do the builds. The only drawback for supporting other build instructions would be that the error outputs would be different from one to another, so we cannot populate them to a navigatable interface that allows developer to click and go to the error line.

FlashDevelop can run any application and capture it's output. So a plugin can run an application, wait for its terminaison, check the return value (succes or not), then run the next command.

Errors and warnings that are formated the usual way (file:line:description) will be detected by the Results panel where they will appear as links to the file/line where there's an error.

I just wanted to say that a Project Panel would be a huge improvement over the current version.

In the meantime though, it would already help to have a decent tree view in the Files Panel, to make it easier to navigate between files - the current flat version is timeconsuming and doesn't give you an instant overview.

I'd be happy to lend testing support or similar for a Project Panel...

cheers - Nils.

Maybe someone will take the time to improve the Files Panel sometime.

In the meantime you can use:
- the drop down menu showing the last locations where you opened a file,
- the context menu (Synchronize View) to go to the folder where the current open file resides.

Thanks Philippe,

I see what you mean - what I was really after though was the ability to see more than one folder expanded at the same time, so that I can just double-click on the AS file I need, rather than having to navigate through the folders. At the moment I often keep a Windows Explorer window open just for that purpose.

(Synchronize View is pretty useful, thanks for that tip! :))

- Nils.
