Today I was working on refactoring code of a large Flex application.
Many files contained lots of imports at the top. I was looking for a quick way to organize my imports.
I did vaguely remember that there was on an option somewhere to organize the imports, but couldn’t remember where to find it! Did all my right-clicks etc., but just couldnt’ see it.
I was almost about to move on, but then I found it!
In Flex Builder, click on Source > Organize Imports to organize imports alphabetically.
Even better, there is shortcut keys for it organizing imports.
On Windows: CTRL + Shift + o
On Mac: Apple + Shift + o.
Keep in mind that that imports can only be organized in this manner in Actionscript files only. (This will not work in MXML files.)
But overall, it works beautifully.
