Do you know that one of the most effective ways of writing code in IntelliJ IDEA is Create From Usage approach, when first use a class, method, or other symbol, and IntelliJ IDEA then generates its declaration in a single click? Well, you do now, plus I’d like to give you two more examples of useful quick fixes that can generate routine code for you in no time.
Create Flex Skin
IntelliJ IDEA knows which MXML attributes must contain qualified name of a class. Class doesn’t exist? Invoke quick fix and get it right away.
In case of Skin class its behavior is even smarter. Write a skin class usage…
Hi all ActionScript/Flex devs! I hope you enjoy using IntelliJ IDEA and I’m sure you’ll like it even more after you try Change Method Signature refactoring! It’s amazing how it allows you to quickly restyle your methods not only by renaming them, but also by adding, reordering, renaming, and deleting parameters, changing their types and default values.
All usages and overriding method declarations will be updated automagically, so your application compiles and works the same way as before with no extra care from your side!
Let me show you how it all works.

And in the end of October we’re going to Los Angeles for another great event — Adobe MAX 2010. We’ll have a booth there with IntelliJ IDEA developers, some useful materials, cool giveaways and geeky T-Shirts!
So, if you’re there — stop by and say “IntelliJ IDEA is cool!” pass-phrase for a special ultra-cool prize!
Develop with pleasure!
The JetBrains Team
Adobe Systems Inc. has recently announced it is stopping further development of Flash Builder for Linux.
If this news makes you uneasy, take it as a great opportunity to learn some new tools!
We welcome all of you to try IntelliJ IDEA as Flex, ActionScript and AIR IDE for every OS, but we aren’t the only ones to do so.
James Ward, a Technical Evangelist at Adobe, has posted an article to his blog in relation to the Flash Builder Linux shutdown, “Flex Development on Linux with IntelliJ IDEA”. James says IntelliJ IDEA is “doing a great job”. He has also recorded a short overview video about using it as your Flex IDE on Linux that we recommend watching.
So, check out the short video below, try IntelliJ IDEA as your new Flex and ActionScript IDE and let us know what you think!
You can download 30-day trial of the latest stable IntelliJ IDEA. Alternatively, you can grab an Early Access build of IntelliJ IDEA 10 which was actually shown in the above video and offers some new cool features.
Develop with pleasure!
ActionScript/Flex development support in IntelliJ IDEA eventually gets closer to the unbeaten level of its Java assistance. Today it’s time to Extract Interface and Superclass.
Let’s illustrate this feature on a simple example…
IntelliJ IDEA 10 makes this refactoring even easier and more pleasant to use. Below is a simple example with highlights for the enhancements. (more…)
It’s not a secret that IntelliJ IDEA has a fully functional interactive debugger for Flex and AIR applications. Here’s a list of features added or improved in upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.3 release:
- XML and XMLList runtime value view
- Smart Step Into: select a function to step into if more than one available (Shift+F7) (more…)
If you work on large projects with dozens of Flex modules (or facets) you’ll like this new feature of IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.2, which lets shorten project build time by compiling several independent Flex modules (facets) in parallel.
To enable this feature go to Settings (Ctrl+Alt+S), Compiler node and then Flex Compiler page:
Let’s have a closer look at this feature. (more…)
|iter||Iterate (for each..in)|
|itar||Iterate elements of array|
|ritar||Iterate elements of array in reverse order|
|psf||public static function|
|prsf||private static function|
|psv||public static var|
|prsv||private static var|
|psc||public static const|
|prsc||private static const|
