 Description  « Hide
When running class for the first time as "FDT SWF Applicaion" the default name is set for class name. Since in most cases Main class is startup class (this is also default class created in new each project) and in most cases there is only one class launched from project I believe naming convention should be updated.
I believe simple change to projectName_className would be nice improvement, because it's describes launching configuration bether

Interesting idea, I would like a 'smoother' way of naming the default naming convention.

The problem with changing the name is...what do we change it to? If we change an existing behavior of something, then it should be as universally accepted as possible - otherwise people who are used to it, and perhaps like it, will be upset.

Since it's really easy to just rename the configuration to whatever someone likes....I don't think it's worth the effort to change when when we can be using the time to work on bugs.

You've had some great ideas over the last few days and I'd like to have those first.

It's just the idea witch came out while I was using FDT. I strongly believe that if something may be done without user interaction - it should be done automatically

Now if you run 5 new projects you'll get proper ruining configuration
Main
Main (1)
Main (2)
Main (3)
Main (4)

But wouldn't be nice to have sth like this with project name prefix?
VideoPlayer_Main
Gallery_Main
Banner_Main
Game_Main
Builder_Main

I agree you are changing existing behavior, but still it's quite obvious change? Isn't it? ...and user don't have to change project name each time creating new project.

I understand this is small thing and I 100% agree that there are many more important things do, but I believe it's small usability changes like this that creates great software It looks like very small task from developer perspective, and I strongly believe it will be nice and useful improvement of FDT.

BTW thx Alan for appreciating my other ideas
