Description andreroquem 2009-05-04 16:00:41 UTC
Editor fold support is really great, and I think it should be used by default on certain parts
of java classes, like
- getters and setters
  Nothing bothers me more than having tons of getters and setters taking space in the screen.
  There could be a default editor-fold in java classes labeled 'Getters and Setters', and
  automatically created getters and setters could be added inside this fold.

- overrided methods
  I don't know how difficult/plausible would this be, but I think it would be great to have
  editor-fold's for overrided methods, one fold for each ancestor class. So, toString,
  hashCode and equals should go into a 'java.lang.Object methods' fold, and so on. Methods
  would be resolved into the higher parent in the hierarchy.

Would be fine to have this. Lets have a look for next release.

Great idea!  Ideally, these would be controlled via the "Collapse by Default" IDE options rather than adding
code-folding directives to the source itself.

But NetBeans already have similar feature. Tools > Options > Editor > Code Templates > Java > New
Name: fold
// <editor-fold defaultstate="collapsed" desc=" ${Identifier} ">
    // </editor-fold>

Set target-milestone of open issue to TBD (was < 7.3, f.e. 6.8), so the issue doesn't get lost.

Set target-milestone of open issue to TBD (was < 7.3, f.e. 6.8), so the issue
doesn't get lost. This time the target milestone is really set.

Could be an enhancement for java.ext.editor - see the other similar samples at
