Problem: I would like to enable code hinting and highlighting in either Flash Professional or Flash Builder when developing an Actionscript Communications File (.asc).
Request: If anyone knows how I can enable FP or FB to give code hints / syntax highlighting, I would really apprecaite some direction. If not, I appreciate the fact you even read this.
Have a good one. Happy Coding.
Yup, that's the only one. It's old, it's a bit buggy but works for the most part.

Believe me, if there was another better one I would be pushing that out instead.
I think you should post on Flash Pro or Flash Builder Forums:
Flash Pro General: http://forums.adobe.com/community/flash/flash_general
As it pertains only to those tools in authoring .asc files, I didn't think that either of those two forums would have been as useful considering this is where people talk about developing for FMS specifically. If I err'd, then I do apologize.
To note, Dreamweaver has the ability to provide code hinting if I remember correctly but I'm perpetually disappointed in the FMS team for not providing even ONE item that helps in the development of server side coding for FMS. They have never provided anything and it's been up to the good will of developers for the platform to put together tools. As it is now, you'll probably never see anything better as most people (that I know of) have moved away from FMS, partially for this reason despite multiple requests that Adobe do something. Not to insult the FMS team, as they do what they have to do to pull in the paycheck, and the bean counters provide that and seem to be making most of the decisions.
ok. rant all done now
I don't want them to provide code hinting ......there are articles out there that say Adobe has sued WOWZA and since Adobe owns the rtmp protocol ....you may want to tell your customers to consider whether or not WOWZA and RED5 will be around in their same capacity in the future. Or maybe you don't want to tell them so you can rebuild their server side scripts at a later date.
I would never mislead my clients. If I thought that the lawsuit had any credibility then rest assured I would point my clients elsewhere. That's just not the case though.
The more people that can develop for FMS the better. It creates work and demand because people will see that others are actually using the software. By providing nothing you make it more difficult to get into, increasing learning time, increasing cost and so on and so forth. It's not the norm and doesn't appeal to most developers.
At least their documentation is good though.
Fair enough what i say when things seem gray to me. Time Will Tell ....I didn't mean for you to mislead your clients part of that post was insensitive. I just explain all aspects to my clients when they are trying to choose FMS over WOWZA they always want to save money. Who doesn't. I just give them the entire picture from everything I've seen and read lately. Then I give them my opnion and I try to push FMS so that I upgrade instead of rebuild them in the future. I've had some resistance to my opinion but I stand by it.
