File Associations


Association List


The file association dialog provides you with a way to define a set of rules to override the operating system default.  This is only necessary if you want to use a different program in FlashFXP other than the one defined by windows own file associations.


Each entry supports an unlimited number of file masks, when a mask is matched the defined program assigned for editing or viewing will be launched.

Commands are;  New Entry |  Delete Entry |  Edit Entry |  Move Up |  Move Down

New Entry / Edit Entry

File Mask (pattern rules)

Commands are;  New Entry |  Delete Entry |  Edit Entry

Add the desired file pattern masks.
For example you might add *.html to open html files using your favorite text editor.
Use the  ( * ) character as the file pattern mask to match all file names and types.

This feature re-introduces the old legacy style of remote editing found in previous versions of FlashFXP, and is quite limited by design. When using this method remote files are not added to the Active Edits dialog.
