    Newbie with a really dumb question about setup

    chieffan

      Ok, I am a newbie to flex.

       

      1.  When I create a new Flex project it wants to set a default location of users/documents/myname/flex 3/

       

      Is this the correct place all my files should go?

       

      2.  Do I have to grab my files from the flex 3 folder and copy them all to my site to publish?  I am really confused on the part of testing files then moving to the server.  I know it shouldn't be this difficult.

       

      Thanks for any help.

          1. You can put your projects (workspace) anywhere you want on your computer. To switch where they go select File -> Switch Workspace from the application menu.

           

          2. To move your files to a server you'll want to do a Release Build of your project/application.  To do this you'll select File -> Export -> Release Build from the application menu.  Then those files can be copied to your server.

           

          Let me know if that helps or if you have more questions.

            That's ok during development time, but when you're done developing there's an option in fhe File menu- export - release build that generates your app, and put in one single folder all the files that you need to upload to your web site.
