    Flash 9 tooltips

    You type for example:


    var mc:MovieClip = new MovieClip();

    when you then type

    mc.

    a list of the available properties and methods appears.

    Now, how to make that possible with custom classes?

    Thank you.

    I'm using Flash 9

    The final version of Flash 9 has not yet been released, so it is not known how this will work in Flash 9. The current public version of Flash 9, however, is an alpha version that is basically Flash 8 with AS3 support. Flash 8 used XML files for code hints and tool tips. I forget where they're stored but a quick google gave me this:
    http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/ar...cybersage.html
    Note that any reference to "Macromedia" in a file path will now be Adobe.

    You could always check out flex 2 builder aswell. It has an awesome IDE

    And i believe you can even get the ide independently, though i wouldn't know how that all works.

    Thanks to both.

    Actually I'm using Flex Builder 2... and his IDE is just awesome.. I was asking myself why flash can't have that too...

    Thanks senocular for the link.. but I found it too difficult/long for a simple code hint..

    yea, i really wish they would just do it right the first time and make Flash have a decent IDE. For my needs, i don't even need the flex library.. but the ide alone is worth more than flash to me.
