Description dynamite 2009-10-08 19:10:33 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200910071658 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.* ]

The "go to type" functionality (ctrl-O) select types by pattern
matching with a string.  For some pattern matches though this can
pull-in a large number of possible classes, particularly if the
project has many library dependencies.  More often than not though I
use this functionality as a quick way of opening up a class that I
know (or strongly suspect) is a part of the current project or one of
my other NetBeans projects.

It would be nice to have a checkbox to restrict the displayed classes
to those that are associated with NetBeans projects and a second
checkbox to include only those classes that are in projects are
currently open in the IDE.

A Scope-Parameter like the "Find in Projects" or the "Find-Usages" - Window would be a nice feature.
