    What do icons mean?

    =VA=FyreHeart

      I'm trying to figure out what the icons in Flex debugger (and code completion) mean. I can't find anything about them in the manual or online. I think I've figured out a few, but it would be nice to know what they mean. For instance, I tried to access a yellow diamond property from ActionScript, and figured out that probably meant "private property" when it gave me an error that I was trying to access an "inaccessible property." It would be nice to know these things in advance.

       

      So can anyone confirm/deny the below or point me to an official listing? Thanks.

      Debugger
      green dot = public object property
      yellow diamond = private object property
      gray dot with "L" = local (in-function) variable
      red square = ?
      blue diamond = ?

       

      Code Completion
      yellow lightning bolt = event
      yellow diamond = private method?
      green circle = object property
      green dot = public method?
      blue tetris block = style property
      blue/gray cloud = effect?

          green dot = public object property

          yellow diamond = private object property

          gray dot with "L" = local (in-function) variable

          red square = inaccesible variables

          blue diamond = inherited properties.

           

          Code Completion

          yellow lightning bolt = event

          yellow diamond = protected method

          green circle = object property (or setter)

          green dot = public method

          blue tetris block = style property
