Description vitalic 2009-05-23 14:03:51 UTC
It would be a useful feature to be able to tab to the end of the line when using auto-complete, this can be in a method,
parentheses, strings etc. Example shown in the attached screenshot.

At the moment there is no easy way to jump out of a statement which is very annoying when you are used to this feature.

As you can see in the screenshot, my cursor is currently inside the parentheses and it shows a little Green cursor at
the end of the statement, now if you press the tab key at that point it will jump out.

Please could you introduce this to NetBeans?

Hi, could anyone re-visit this request? This feature or an equivalent feature is still missing and it is the one thing affecting my productivity with NetBeans the most.

Basically a way to jump out of parentheses/brackets/strings without requiring use of arrow keys.
