Change Signature Dialog for ActionScript

Refactor | Change Signature
Ctrl+F6


Use this dialog to change the function signature and to perform other, related tasks.

ItemDescription
Return typeUse this field to modify the function return type.
NameUse this field to modify the function name.
Use the table and the controls to the right of it to manage the function parameters and their properties.
TypeUse this field to specify the type of a parameter.
NameUse this field to specify the name of a parameter.
InitializerA value (or an expression) specified in this field is added to the function definition as the default parameter value.
Default valueA value (or an expression) passed to the function in the function calls.
add or Alt+Insert Use this icon or shortcut to start adding a new parameter.

Specify the parameter type, name, initializer, and the default value.

Note that you can propagate the parameters you have added to the calling methods.

delete or Alt+Delete Use this icon or shortcut to delete the selected parameter.
arrowUp or Alt+Up Use this icon or shortcut to move the selected parameter one line up in the list of parameters.
arrowDown or Alt+Down Use this icon or shortcut to move the selected parameter one line down in the list of parameters.
propagateParameters or Alt+G Use this icon or shortcut to propagate the added parameters to the calling methods.

You can propagate new function parameters to any function that directly or indirectly calls the function whose signature you are changing.

(There may be the functions that call the current function. These functions, in their turn, may be called by other functions. You can propagate new parameters to any of the functions in such sequences.)

In the left-hand pane of the Select Methods to Propagate New Parameters dialog, expand the necessary nodes and select the check boxes next to the functions you want the new parameters to be propagated to.

Signature PreviewIn this area, the current function signature is shown. (The information in this area is synchronized with the changes you are making to the function signature.)
