Description mikeskells 2005-08-02 10:28:50 UTC
Could a small modification be made to the java navagator to allow cross 
references to be made?
If you copy a node for the navagator, and then paste it into a javadoc comment 
in the the editor you get someting like 
if this could be modified to be the javadoc format of the referenced object 
then this could allow for a simple mechnaism to insert cross reference into 
javadoc, or code
for javadoc the format could be 
or "{@link com.myco.MyClass#someMethod(Object,int)}" 
or "@see com.myco.MyClass#someMethod(Object,int)"
Should I pass this comment onto someone in the UI team?
Do people think that it is a good or bad idea?
Should I launch a RFE, or is this below the level of an enhancement
    either way 
is less usefull than it could be!
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2005-08-02 21:45:51 UTC
Probably WONTFIX; there are separate plans to add code completion to Javadoc
comments that would be far more usable (and discoverable) than pasting from the
Comment 2 mikeskells 2005-08-17 21:01:44 UTC
if copy is suported from the navagator (as it currently is) it should be 
useful, so this is either a feature , or a bug that copy should not work.

personally I would like to see a DND operation. This was just to allow a 
simple implementation.

where is the propossal for code completion?

Passing to java/navigation owner - and I also think that current code completion is enough.
