Smart code completion

1d-smart-completion.gif
  • FlashDevelop's code completion works with your and others classes.
  • Press Tab to expand usual code snippets (function, get/set, for, while, if,...).
  • See how the list tips are filled with information extracted from the code comments.
1e-all-types-completion.gif
  • FlashDevelop knows all your project classes,
  • so just let FlashDevelop automatically import them for you.
1f-smart-event-completion.gif
  • FlashDevelop completes the events that the object actually dispatches (as declared in the class metadatas).
  • And the appropriate Event class will automatically be imported.

Typed Array/Vector code completion

1g-vector-completion.gif
  • FlashDevelop was the first ActionScript editor with Vector types code completion.
  • FlashDevelop supports "Strictly typed Arrays" code completion as introduced by mtasc (available in AS2, AS3)

Smart Proxy typing

 dynamic class MCProxy 
         extends /*MovieClip*/Proxy {...}  
 ...
 var mc:MCProxy;
 mc. //completes as MovieClip
  • FlashDevelop offers a very smart code completion for Proxy classes - use them as easily as the "proxied" type.

Rich code completion

1a-rich-completion.gif
  • FlashDevelop has a rich code completion - the code call-tips show you the methods parameters and event extracts information from the original code's documentation.
  • Recognized code comments syntax:
 /**
  * Javadoc standart comment block
  */
 <your declaration here>
 
 /// custom "3 slashes" line comments
 <your declaration here>

  • If the code extracts are not enough, press F1 to get the complete comments from the original code!

Mouse hover for information
