Image of Logitech Anywhere MX mouse and Flash Builder

Over the past few months I've found I use the heck out of the debug feature in Flash Builder 4. And when working on really complex Flex applications sometimes the only way to see whether my code is doing what I need is to run the application. Why? Because design view in Flash Builder 4 doesn't know how to work with popular Flex frameworks such as Swiz. At least, I've not been able to get it to work quite right for me.

Sometime last week I grew tired of pressing the debug button so I configured my Logitech Anywhere MX mouse so it initiates debugging sessions for me. It's pretty rocking. Click the image after the break to see a short video demonstration of how it works. If you want to learn more about the Anywhere MX mouse, I blogged my experience with it last year.

  1. Good stuff! Thanks for the video!

  2. I don't use it exactly the same way, but I've been using my Logitech mouse (VX Revolution) for over roughly 2yrs now and I love the programmable buttons. I currently use the zoom buttons for global volume control, the thumb back/forth buttons for web page and file system navigation, and the switch application button to open my start menu. I'm a big fan of Logitech!
