Flex support

Hi,

I try to use IDEA 8 to create flex application and I've some issues :
- It's easy now to debug but it is possible in a future version to generate the html template and open it in a browser ?
- Better support with maven swc dependency (I use http://code.google.com/p/flex-mojos/) is it planned to build project file ?
- If I add swc dependency as libraries in my project the IDE don't see it so non autocompletion etc ....

Thanks

You probably mean something like
http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-24483

- Better support with maven swc dependency (I use http://code.google.com/p/flex-mojos/) is it planned to build project file ?

Please, file JIRA request

As work around place your library swc under lib directory :)


Thanks

Maxim,

I think it would be more logical and easier if one could define swc libraries in the same way as jar libraries can be defined for java projects.
If I understand correctly, right now I have to place third-party swc files (or my own swc files) inside the lib directory of the SDK, correct?
If so, that's like putting third-party JAR files inside a JDK...not very nice to say the least.

I agree with you, your syggestion is the solution to be developed :)
lib / libs directory inside the project will work now and I suggest it
as workaround

what lib folder do you mean? Does the autocomplete work then? Would be nice to loose the red text of the namespaces when using references to the swf files.

Hope you can help, want to try the mate framework for flex and autocompletion would make life a lot easier.

thanks Jettro

Hi,
lib folder under module content root, autocomplete will work.
Please, file JIRA issue with sample project if the problem persists

It does work in actionscript files, but I cannot get it to work in combination with namespaces in mxml files.

Do you use 'uri' for your library components import (like
mx="http://something") or just plain class import syntax
(local="com.acme.*")? later syntax should work

Yes, that did it. Now it works. Still I think it is a pretty cumbersome approach. Especially if the library uses a lot of different packages that you need objects from.

But I am glad it works, another nice thing after the debugger.

thanks for the help

Are there any plans to support the ability to define swcs like jars for Java in the IDEA 8 timeframe?

If you mean specifying swc libraries for module then the answer is yes.
