Distinguishing between public and private props and methods

In the ActionScript view, where it lists all the properties and methods of a class, it would be nice if there were a differentiation between private and public members. Many IDEs show a little padlock or something on the private one's icons. Or maybe italics or something would work. Not a big deal, but would be nice.

I agree. For classes with many properties/methods, having a private/public identifier makes it easier to find what I'm looking for. I don't use the Actionscript view often, but when I do it's usually because I'm working with a huge class, and that's when this feature is needed most.

This was actually for long at the beginning of my TODO list... just after bug fixes ;)

Moreover I'm not very happy with the icons (from SharpDevelop) because methods & variables icons are very similar. Maybe I should "copy" the Flash IDE's icons...

So, yes, I will add additional icons for static & public/private differentiation but I would be happy to have some designer help.

It is 16x16 PNG on white background -- It should not be a complex alpha channel because it seems to create problems for .NET
That's all :)

Private / public differenciation was added in the SVN for the next release.

:idea: I could quickly add full static private / static public / private / public differenciation if someone provides nice additional icons that would not make the Class tree look like a Christmas tree.
