Flex/ActionsScript field watchpoints can't be defined

When I use the 'Search by Name' tab, typing the class name does nothing.

When I use the 'Project' tab, nothing happens when I select the class.

I checked the documentation, and it doesn't work at all.

Is this a bug?

I using idea 13.0.2 on Mac OSX 10.7.5

I'm afraid I didn't understand a question.
May be you can add a screenshot clarifying what you are doing and what you expect to get?

By the way IntelliJ IDEA 13.0.2 has an awful performance regression in ActionScript and MXML code completion and highlighting. I recommend you yo use IntelliJ IDEA 13.0.3 EAP. You can swithch to EAP update channel in Preferences | Updates.

When I try to select my class by navigating the project files, the OK button is disabled:-
idea13.0.2 f w project.jpg
When I search by class name, nothing matches:-
idea 13.0.2 f w select.jpg

With the peformance issue you mentioned, thanks for letting know, I did find the poor performance annoying and frustrating.

Ok, thanks, I got the question.
Field watchpoints are supported by Java debugger only, so you are only allowed to select a Java class in the dialog.

In ActionScript/Flex you can only set ordinary line breakpoints by clicking the editor gutter.

I'm surprised that you aren't supporting field watchpoints fin Flex/ActionScript. Afterall, FlasBuilder does.
