Flash Professional Does Not Show Code Hints

Code hints sometimes does not show or work correctly due to cache corruption. To solve this issue you only need to delete your user config folder and that should do it for you.
Please make sure to quit Flash Professional before deleting your user config folder.

Mac :
Macintosh HD/Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CS5/

Windows XP:

boot drive\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS5\

Windows Vista:

boot drive\Users\\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS5\

Windows 7 :
boot drive\Users\\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS5

The other issue is that when you don't get code hints for controls. for example, no code hints when you do the following


and you are expecting fl.controls.

To solve this issue drag a component to your library (checkbox,DataGrid,etc..). and try again.
