Description ssazonov 2013-09-20 11:06:29 UTC
1. Assume following ClassE:

package simpleproject123;

public class ClassE {

    public final int MY_INT = 0;
    public final String MY_CONST = getVal(MY_INT);

    public void method() {
        String s = getVal(MY_INT);

    public String getVal(int val) {
        return "someValue";

2. I expected, that "public final String MY_CONST = getVal(MY_INT);" is right defined constant agreement with java documentation because no hints are presented in editor.

3. So, when I selected "getVal(MY_INT)" in method() body I expected I Could Introduce Constant by using Alt+Shift+C instead i get "Invalid Selection" Error.

>> I think there should be either hint that "public final String MY_CONST = getVal(MY_INT);" is deprecated if it is (I don't know) or option Introduce Constantn should be allowed on "getVal(MY_INT)" at method() body.
