The dialog box opens when you click Manage Scopes on the JavaScript libraries settings page.

Use this dialog to define the scopes where the JavaScript libraries should apply to code completion, highlighting and navigation. The scopes may cover the whole project, directories and even individual files. This helps make JavaScript code completion more precise, and avoid too long suggestion lists.




This column displays the project tree view.


This column displays libraries for a file or directory, if applicable.

If a library can be specified for a certain node of the project tree view, click the Library column for a selected file or directory, and choose the desired library from the list of available libraries.

If JavaScript libraries are not applicable to a particular node, 'N/A' is shown in grey font.
