Description plymouthjason 2008-03-25 14:15:55 UTC
Code Completion does not have obvious option to disable 'features':
 o Parameter guessing Code completion (see: for description)
 o Code completion ending character (see: for description)
 o Javadoc completion

While each of these features sounds nice, in reality, many users are required to actually preform MORE work due to their
functionality. Parameter guessing is often incorrect (even if it was correct much of the time, it should still be an
option); ending characters are not helpful in many cases. Javadoc completion is not always desired.

The Netbeans 5.5 code-completion feature-set is preferable to many users; it is necessary to allow users to deactivate
undesired functionality. 'Smarter' is not always smarter.
Comment 1 Max Sauer 2008-03-25 14:34:54 UTC
Thanks for a nice enhancement, we will consider this. Note that there are some options under Tools|Options|Editor|General|Code Completion (Guess Filled 
Method Arguments, etc.).
Comment 2 plymouthjason 2008-03-25 14:56:27 UTC
As of Netbeans 6.0, 6.0.1 (6.1 beta also); the described options under "Tools|Options|Editor|General|Code Completion"
are not a complete list of all code-completion options; there currently is no option for "Guess Filled Method Arguments"
(as described by msauer); however, this would be the ideal place to capture the options.
Comment 3 Vitezslav Stejskal 2008-03-25 16:27:40 UTC
"Guess Filled Method Arguments" was added after Nb 6.1 beta, please check dev builds.
Comment 4 Quality Engineering 2008-10-31 04:46:25 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200810310201* on (upload may still be in progress)
User: Dusan Balek <>
Log: Couple of code completion options added as requested by issues #74724, #131037, and #140695.
Comment 5 David Strupl 2009-05-12 10:22:14 UTC
All the requested options has been implemented.
