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.

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.

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.
