    new project from source code

    Foxchx Level 1

      I am trying to install a new project from a source code i have my problem is that i want to change the names but i don't understand flex builder on that level.

       

      I guess my workflow is wrong because usually i create multiple instances of a project so that when i mess it up, i can continue on another instance but because i don't understand the naming policy of Flexbuilder, i never manage to create another instance of the same project!?

          You can use F2 to refactor your app, I really don't understand what you mean

          by flex naming policy.

            I guess you want the give the new project the same name ? but that is never possible

              i just need a little reassuring on the way to understand that part (well flex as a lot of these little parts without explanation but that's one that really bug me)

               

              When using flex builder i need to create a project....Oh!, no wait, I need to create a workspace! then a project then decide on many little settings...

               

              THe SQL databse end up somewhere like [C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\crazyflexapp\Local Store]

               

              My work space is say [P:\@AIRFLEX\_workspace\crazyflexapp\]

               

              My AiR app install say [C:\ProgramFiles\AIR Examples\Exercise\crazyflexapp\]

               

              It's all a bit confusing don't you think, especially if there's a program (FlexBuilder3) That don't allow duplicate of name?

               

              And because i am starting i  am using existing source code, so i never know if i need to addapt and MXML code because it might refer to the wrong folder name or location?!

               

              Is there a blog anywhere giving the answer to all that in a nice little comprensive explanation?\

               

              thanks

                Change the source path. In the Project properties.

                  Well i was just pointing out the complexity of it all... here's a visual of what i don'tv really understand

                  Now you seem to be saying that i just need to change the sourcepath and that would fix my problems!?!?

                  I don't see how i can change the name of a project to fit the source code i have....

                   

                  Actually i tried manyways but nothing work....

                   

                  I can make the source code work but only if use the same names as the SC was made under...

                   

                  (for the record, i am using the source code from the adobe employee directory)
