Flex Builder : Jump to definition

On November 14, 2007, in Flex Builder, Flex, by Anuj Gakhar

I just found out this really cool way to browse a Flex app. I use Flex Builder to develop Flex apps, so this is related to Flex Builder , not sure if this works in the Eclipse plugin as well. While you are in the code view, if you mouse over the name of a function, class or object, press the CTRL key and it becomes a hyperlink to point to the actual definition of the object.

Really cool! I always found it a bit messy to browse all the files and functions inline and dont really like the functions list view.

  1. Hi Anuj,

    Confirmed that this works with the plugin of Flex Builder, at least it does using FB alpha on Ubuntu 7.10.

    This came up at 360|Flex Atlanta during Deepa’s ssoeisn, but more about a Flex Lite. Matt Chotin chimed in and said there’s been talks, but nothing definite. One potential option that was talked about was the ability to choose versions of the framework, from light weight to full featured, or roll your own.
