Eclipse - Flash Builder 4 Shortcuts

Probably much of you power eclipse users know this already but I thought to revisit and write some command keyboard shortcuts that are very useful for me. Some of you may discover something that you were missing. Ok here we go.

CTR+3
  • easy navigate to all IDE features
  • you can type whatever you want eg ("Generate getters", "Toggle ASDoc Comments", "Whitespace", "Join lines" etc)
  • play around it and see that how cool this is
CTRL+SHIFT+R
  • Opens Resources (all files inside your projects can be found with this)
CTRL+SHIFT+T
  • Opens Types
  • supports CamelCase (eg. you can type AB and this will find all classes which have AsomethingBsomething)
CTRL+O
  • Quick Outline (gives you fast overview of the class with all of its members)
CTRL+ALT+H
  • Open Hierarchy - easily see from where are your methods called
  • stop on a method name and play around
  • works inside Flex SDK as well!!!
CTRL+I
  • Correct Indentation - select a portion or complete file and press CTRL+I
CTRL+Q
  • Go to last edit
CTRL+E
  • List open editors
CTRL+TAB, CTRL+SHIFT+TAB, CTRL+PgUp, CTRL+PgDn
  • Shuffle through open editors
ALT+Up/Down, CTRL+ALT+Up/Down
  • move/copy line up or down
CTRL+Up/Down
  • Move editor up/down
CTRL+D
  • delete current line
CTRL+ALT+R
  • Refactor method or variable

And at last to show all available keys at the moment press CTRL+SHIFT+L.

Hi Eddy,

Glad that you see this useful.

I have migrated all my coding to IntelliJ Idea which is a truly fenomenal IDE.

As for Eclipse and Flash builder as far as I remember References/Declarations were searched by utilizing

Ctrl/Cmnd+G

and

Ctrl/Cmnd+Shift+G

Does this work for you?

Thank you for these shortcuts that are very usefull.

I am looking for the following shortcuts.
Find all references in Project
Find all declaration in Project
Find all declaration in Workspace

I try to define these shortcut in Flashbuilder 4.7 but it does not work.
In fact, the these equivalents shortcuts in Eclipse for Java have the SEARCH category, and not the navigation category.

Do you know how to define "Find all declaration in Project" in flashbuilder and make it work?

Thank you very much.

Eddy
