Configuring Load Path

In this section:

Basics

The load path is the path where require and load statements will look for files. The specified paths will be used in code completion for require and load. If the load path is not defined, code completion will suggest only the paths relative to the project root.

A directory that belongs to the load path is marked as the source root directory rootSource in the project view.

  1. Open the Project Structure settings, and then click the Load Path.
  2. In the this page, click add.
  3. Locate the desired path in the Select Path dialog box.

Configuring load paths via context menu
