Time Saver: Package Rename Refactoring

Feature: Package Rename Refactoring. In Package Explorer, use F2, “Rename…” in the Package Explorer context menu, or “Rename…” in the top-level File menu

Problem: In Flex Builder 3,
in order to refactor packages…well you couldn’t. You’d have to do this manually or use another tool. Ouch.

Solution: Implement package rename refactoring. Thanks, Scott!.

Time Saver: Run to Line

With all the great new data-centric development features in Flash Builder 4, it’s easy to miss the quick time saving features. Especially the ones that we take for granted in other IDEs. One of my missions here on Flash Builder Tips is to highlight these simple, time saving features.

Feature: Run to Line, CTRL+R / CMD+R

Problem: In Flex Builder 3, in order to break on a line you would either have to set a new breakpoint on the desired line or, while suspended, step over lines until you reached the desired line. This was a bit annoying since many other IDEs for other runtimes support run to line.

Solution: Um…implement Run to Line. While suspended, set the cursor on the desired line and press CTRL+R / CMD+R.

Stay tuned for more tips like this one.
