Hi :)

I want to debug or at least edit and run Android apps in the Corona Simulator.

I saw Benjamin's youtube video (can't link) of using it once it is installed. Benjamin's version is Mac though and called something else.

I have XP 32-bit and Corona Simulator works fine. I will have to use just a text editor until I get Eclipse working.

I downloaded Koneki LDT standalone 1.0, created new project and tried run as Lua Application, but I get Exception in thread Main.

And code hinting doesn't work even for Lua, when I type "for" I get no suggestions.

1. What to download?
2. How to tell Corona Simulator and Eclipse so they can find each other?
3. What to install/set up to get Corona API look up code hinting in Eclipse?

Hi Linus,
I am glad you find a way to debug your corona app with LDT.

As you seem an eclipse new user, maybe you don't know the basic stuff to have content assist.
- First, your lua file have to be opened with the right editor. To select an editor right click on the file and go into the "Open With" menu to select the "Lua editor"

Well...I've used it before to edit others' code (Java). I'm doing fine coding in it now :)

There are two kinds of Code Assist, code hinting and code templates. "for" was a template, and it doesn't automatically pop up like for code hinting. Now, Ctrl+Space pops up both types manually, but my problem was that I didn't know there was an explicit key.

But it was solved after a few minutes of googling. "Oh. It's TEMPLATES. OF COURSE." So after looking around in General/Keys this led me to search for the actual key combo on the net, because it does NOT appear if you filter by "template" or "code" (and I couldn't conjure up "Content" or "Assist"). And there's no way at all to find a key combo in that long list without filtering and reading.

So, the answer is:
3. RTFM problem. :) Benjamin (and I) got the "for" template by pressing Ctrl+Space.

Hi Linus,

Can you elaborate on your answer to question 2. I am also getting the same Exception in thread "main" error. Can you walk me through what options exactly to choose for this.

For question 1, where do you find the Corona Plugin API? I have been trying to find it on Eclispe but can not find the depository that has this.
