Description tnleeuw 2010-02-23 09:21:53 UTC
I would like to see a Java Hint added that, when I have the cursor on a parameter, gives me the option to assign the parameter to a (new) field when I hit alt-enter.

I miss this feature from Eclipse.

Hm, such a hint exists for quite a long time and works OK to me - could you please attach a sample class on which it does not work? Thanks.
Comment 2 tnleeuw 2010-04-13 11:21:20 UTC

This hint works when in a constructor, but not in a method:

public class ClassA {
    public void setMyField(String myField) {

If method 'setMyField()' is specified in an interface, and added to the class definition from the interface, then I start my coding with filling in the interface definition methods. Not with specifying the constructor and parameters.

Also missing this feature from eclipse and it is not available even in 7.2.
