Structure view of actionscript is empty

Answered

Not sure what that "Structure" tab on left side of IDE is, but it's empty and doesn't show anything there fror actionscript based project. I'd like to see "class view" like in visual studio, isn't it something that should be implemented before anything else, or I simply cannot find it? Where is it?..

here's how class view looks like for action script in visuals studio: all classes listed with their full package paths, if I expand package player I see classes that it has, for each class if I select it I see all members.

 

At the to I can type anything in the search and all the classes filtered: 

where is that functionality in intelliJ?

Thanks

You can explore API in the Project View under the External Libraries node, also enable Show Members option:

Use Navigate | Class or Symbol and then View | Select In | Project (or enable autoscroll from source option).

Structure view shows the structure of the active editor tab file.

That's funny :) It shows me that useless API structure of the sdk and doesn't show structure of my own code? :)

The second suggestion "Use Navigate | Class or Symbol and then View | Select In | Project (or enable autoscroll from source option)." is unrelated to that "External Libraries" thing, right? The second part "and then View | Select In | Project" is confusing, don't see anything like "Select In" in the "View" menu. I simply want to see all classes in my project, just like on screenshot, so I can browse through classes and see the code. In VisualStudio I use class view like 95% of the time. Instead of viewing physical layout on the drive it shows logical code layout. In java logical layout dictates physical layout, so it might be somewhat related, but not for other languages. On top of that proper class view implementation make it make easier to see overall class structure.

Ah, I see that "Structure" tab get populated with structure of the file that I select. If nothing open I saw empty window that feels like a bug.

Why not show there full project structure when nothing is selected? When file is selected it will show structure of entire file, but sometimes that might be too much to show: if you can see list of classes then when you expand certain class you see only what you want to see.

 

Still, it dose something related but not that well, there has to be proper class view window to see all project's calsses grouped properly so you can see overall picture.

The structure of your own code is displayed under the project name node, while the libraries used in the project are displayed under External Libraries.

It is related. You can navigate to the external libraries (API code) this way.

Sorry, it's now in the Navigate menu (Alt+F1). Enabling autoscroll from source would be faster.
