How to make NetBeans show constructors like Eclipse does ...

for example ..

when i'm writting in Eclipse

FileReader fr = new FileReader(); /* here Eclipse shows all the constructors availables */

Anybody knows how to set NetBeans to do something similar ?

thanks

In Netbeans 6.0 this happens automatically for me....

FileReader fileReader = new FileReader();

Positioning cursor between constructor brackets, press CTRL+Space for content assist and the various constructors should be available...

We have a forum for IDEs here. I'm going to move this so future people with the question can find it when searching.
