Flash UI Designer

Greetings,

I am using IntelliJ 12.0 on a Mac with 64 bit Java 1.6.0.  I installed the Flash UI Designer plugin.  I imported a Flash (Flex) application (with .mxml files).  I was able to resolve everything and when I tried to start it it seemd to work.  The problem is I can't get to the Flash UI Designer.  I tried to view one of my .mxml files by brinigning it up.  I read somewhere that I should use the pain brush icon ("Open Design View") but it is greyed out / disabled.  I cannot figure out how to enable it and get to design view.  Your help is appreciated.

Thanks.

There are several ways to start Flash Design View:

  • toolbar button with brush
  • gutter icon near the root tag of the mxml
  • context menu


The action is enabled if mxml language namespace is
http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009 and Flex SDK version is in the range 4.1 -  4.6. Apache Flex SDK 4.8+ support is coming.

In my case, I am using:

Namespace:  http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml

Flex SDK:  3.5.0

I have about 500 screens defined like this.  IntelliJ has a setting for Flex 3.5.  It is what I have it set for.

Is there anyway to make this work?

(Flash Builder (all versions) is very buggy and slow with large projects (as is eclipse) - nearly unusable.)

Thanks.

Our Flash UI Designer plugin is designed in the way that doesn't allow to support Flex3 mxml components, sorry.
