Setting Flash Builder 4 syntax coloring to be like Flash Professional

May 17, 2010 9:06 PM

Is there a way to have the Actionscript syntax colors be exactly like Flash Professional?  I managed to set most of them to be the same, but some reserved keywords like addEventListener isn't affected?  Any plugins anyone knows of?

    No.

     

    Flash Pro has special logic for methods of EventDispatcher. addEventListener is one of those methods, not a keyword.

    Hi Jason,

     

    I've been searching the net for awhile now for a way to color methods and properties (and even datatype declarations) for AS code in Flash Builder. Are you saying that there's no way to isolate those items for specific coloring? If that's the case, can we expect that option to be included in a future update to Flash Builder?

     

    Attached is a screencap of how I was coloring code using TextMate, and how the same code looks in Flash Builder. Being able to set the color for methods and properties really helps. Have I overlooked an option in the preferences somewhere?

     

    Thanks for any more info you can provide on this.

     

    Geoff

    No, there isn't currently an option to set a different color for methods and properties. Please file a Flash Builder bug at http://bugs.adobe.com/flex.

    Ugh this is a old thread, still no syntax coloring for variable types?

     

    Flex Builder 4.7 still seems to have no option for variable types.

     

    Flash Professional's IDE was so sexy.
