FlashBuilder 4 jump directly to API documentation tip

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — michaelangela @ 4:30 am

I was wondering if it is possible to jump directly to the ASDoc of a Flash/Flex component. Seems it is possible.

Oh my. Very nice. Place your cursor in the code of interest and press Shift + F2. And there you go. Previously I used FluidApp to wrap the AS3 reference documentation locally as noted below. But now this is not needed. On my box FluidApp’s search is faster sometimes than the Adobe Help depending on what’s running, but jumping right to the docs in question is very helpful.

Big Spaceship | Labs Blog – AIR App: AS3 Language Reference

I found the scrollbars in the air app to be shoddy, so I downloaded the offline version of the AS3 docs:

http://help.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/flash/10/ActionScript3LangRef.zip

and then created a fluid app from my local version.

now runs perfect offline and even has a search.
