Tried hiding the window and resetting the prefs, getting annoyed by the gray text that pops up and I'd rather do a help search on a keystroke. Any tips on disabling the dynamic help?

They gray highlight is the mark occurrences feature. It shows all references for the selected identifier. To disable it, toggle the highlighter icon in the toolbar.

I'm not sure which gray text you're talking about. There's 2 types of "popup" help in Flash Builder (1) ASDoc tooltips and (2) Adobe Help. Neither of them have gray text. I'll assume you're talking about the ASDoc tooltips.

1) Preferences > Editors > ActionScript Code

2) Uncheck "show in text hovers"

To bring up ASDoc tooltips on demand, press F2. Alternatively, you can use the ASDoc view (Window > Show View > Other...).

Hope that's what you're looking for.

This is what I'm talking about, I tried your solution and it didn't stop FB from loading the API docs/help for where my cursor was.

When you disable ASDoc content, you'll still see the signature for the identifier. I image you see something like "classification:List - spark.components.List" and it should display without documentation. You can't disable the signature tooltip.

Hm ok pretty odd you can't disable it... I assumed by the delay in the time

it is taking to load the tooltip/do the gray highlight that it is actually

doing the search behind the scenes and wanted to disable it. How can you get

rid of the gray highlight?

But before disabling it, note that it can be very handy. Specifically, in the margin on the right, "mark occurrences" will put little white dashes that show where all of the occurrences are in the current file. If you click on those little white dashes, it will take you there in the editor. I find this useful, because they are in order (of course). It is kind of like bookmarks without the effort and also like searching without the effort. Just in case anybody reading this doesn't already know that ...

I agree, I left it on since I now know what it is for!
