AS Doc Creation from Flex Builder 3.

Flex builder has capability of generating ASDoc using an exe, which will generate the ASDoc for your codes. But how? I didn't find any documention in the help of flex builder. So I am writting this for all, who are looking for.

It is very simple. Following steps demonstrate how we can set the ASDoc compliar in Flex builder 3.

Step 1. Set up the external tool in builder by clicking Run > External Tools > Open External Tool Dialog. Or you can get it from tool bar. Click on the following icon in tool bar.

This will pop up External Tools dialog box.

Step 2. Click on the new launch configration button from the top left

Step 3. Give it name whatever you fill approricate.
In the location field click on browse button and search for the asdoc exe in the SDK folder. by default it reside at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3\sdks\3.2.0\bin\asdoc.exe in windows.

Step 4. Point your project folder. In the working directory field type ${project_loc} – this will point to your current project.

Step 5 : Set up the arguments. Inn the arguments field add following arguments.
-source-path src
-doc-sources src
This assumes that you set up your projects with the default source folder called src. It’ll look into your project folder’s src for generating ASDoc.

Thats it, you have setup your ASDoc generation tool. Now just click on the Run button to Generate the Doc. This will create athe ASDoc in asdoc-output folder within your current folder structure.

I hope this will help you.
