Flex Builder – What do the Icons in Variables View mean?
Take a look at a typical Flex Debugging perspective Variables view.
There is a lot of images with other symbols on top of them. From red squares, green circles to yellow diamonds with (), C, S etc… icons on top. What do they all mean? Well I am not totally sure myself, but some are obvious.
– Red Square
This defines a private variable.
– Green Circle
This defines a public variable.
– Yellow Diamond
This defines a protected variable.
– Orange Like Square Grid
This defines a ???? (any one know?) – it defines a package usually but this is used on attributes like x where y in the same object is set to a green circle, making no sense.
Ok now for the overlapping superscript icons.
– C icon
This defines a constant variable.
– D icon
This defines a dynamic variable.
– Red S icon
This defines a static variable.
– Getter icon
This defines that its has a getter.
