Description Denis Anisimov 2005-02-08 09:53:30 UTC
Now only possibility to choose needed item 
from completion list is Enter,
Shift-Enter write chosen string in editor and
still show completion list .
It would be very useful feature to have possibility
end choosing completion through symbols:
"=", "." , " ","(", "-", "+"."["
in such way that completion is performed and 
needed symbol is inserted.
This should be smart enough for differ "=" when 
you do completion for variable and do not 
do completion when you choose some class ( you 
can assign value for variable , but cannot 
do this for type ).

This is high priority usability issue.

This bug fixed as RFE in Bow release by me and should be delivered 
in NetBeans branch.
Comment 2 Miloslav Metelka 2005-02-08 10:14:49 UTC
I've changed this to enhancement because this is not a defect and not
a regression. Unfortunately we are already in a bug-fixing phase after
feature freeze of promoE so it's more likely that your patch will get
integrated during promoF. As you already have the implementation of
the feature could you please provide us with a diff of the feature?
Please attach it to this issue. Thanks.
Comment 3 Roman Strobl 2005-04-22 13:58:38 UTC
The work on this enhancement has been started, it is possible to use several of
suggested characters in experimental version of new code completion. Dusane,
please take a look a the other suggested characters from this RFE if it makes
sense to use them. Thanks.
