Autocomplete Netbeans.png (current behaviour)


My request is a little bit hard to explain. So please look at the attachments to unterstand the issue.

If you type the full name of a method or function *with* the parenthesis and hit Ctrl+Space (cursor is between the opening and closing parenthesis like in the screenshot "Autocomplete Netbeans.png"), Netbeans will show a list of classes, namespaces, etc, but it does not show the parameters (and their types) that the typed method expects.

But if you type only a part of the method name, hit Ctrl+Space and let Netbeans autocomplete the method name, Netbeans will show a small pop-up showing the expected parameters and their types (see screenshot "How it should be.png").

It would be great if this pop-up could be shown in the first mentioned case, too. 
Visual Studio for example, does it that way.

Perhaps, You can use [Ctrl + P].

Comment 3 naitsirch 2015-08-03 07:26:47 UTC
Hi junichi11 you are totaly right. Thats working and now I have discovered that there is even a menu entry on `Source > Show Method Parameters` :-)

My question is if it would make sense to "integrate" [Ctrl + P] in [Ctrl + Space] as these functions are related in a way and do not have to be separated.
