    Gettting classes to display in code editor

    wally_errrr Level 1
      Is there anyway to have classes defined in external AS files to bring up a list of public methods when you are reffering to an instance of the class.....

      so when i type;

      myInstance. <- Then a drop down list would appear with my methods?

      Thanks for your help,

      Lucas

          I investigated this myself a while back. Nobody knew if it was possible,
          and poking around yielded nothing.

          Hopefully there will be some sort of builtin help function that show help
          docs --- I'll keep dreaming.

            I did some more digging today and found this...

            not exactly what you were looking for, but I am happy with it.
