Description arnolem 2011-05-04 08:48:06 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.0 (Build 201104080000)
Operating System = Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_22
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 17.1-b03


After talking with several developers who used "Notepad ++". I am submitting a feature request.

Select only the variable name (without the $) when double-clicked.
This will copy the variable name more easily so that you can paste in a SQL query, in an object property or in Array.

Should this functionality is configured by the user.

Thank you
