Description _ tboudreau 2006-10-26 00:27:39 UTC
Double click a method name in Navigator.  You may end up with the caret on the
last visible line in the editor, with that being the method signature.  It ought
to scroll as much as possible into view.

The code in java/source ends up in anyway. I thnk that this issue
shouled be solved there. If so this will work for any editor not only the Java
editor, which is the desired state.

The ideal algorithm would be to try to show the line in about 1rd of the editor
window I think.

This could probably be solved well enough without too much computation or

Rectangle r = x.modelToView (charOffset);
r.height += 40; //pick a reasonable integer, or *= by some factor - r should be
one line's height anyway
