What is FDTracer?
The FDTracer plugin for FlashDevelop 3 is a ‘port’ of Alessandro Crugnola’s awesome FlashTracer Firefox extension. It adds a panel to the FlashDevelop 3 IDE to display trace() statements logged to the debug Flash Player’s log file.
FDTracer should work with FlashDevelop 3 and can be installed by copying the FDTracer.dll to the FD3 plugins directory (note that FD3 plugins are now stored in the user’s application folder).
Configuring FDTracer Settings
After installing, you’ll need to open the FDTracer settings dialog (”Tools > Installed plugins > FDTracer settings”) and set the traceOutputFileName to point to the debug Flash Player log file.
FDTracer displays the contents of the debug Flash Player log file and so requires that you are using the debug version of Flash Player.
