I thought that option went away a long time ago. It looks like you've activated the "Smalltalk View". I forget what Eclipse calls it, but basically, it's a drilldown that shows just a single method (or in your case, context) in the client window.
I used to accidentally switch this on all the time. Somewhere in the help files, there's info on switching it on (and off!) I never could remember how to turn it off, though.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I'm able to turn off breadcrumbs no problem, but I'm using 3.5.
I *love* the breadcrumbs; it was one of the features from IntelliJ I really missed when using Eclipse.
Re: the "Smalltalk" view--that's the class browsing perspective, not the breadcrumbs. It's funny--I love it when doing Smalltalk, not so much when coding Java. I've identified a few reasons for that: people tend to write longer methods in Java, making it less useful. The editor support for showing only the method of interest works, but only sort-of (have to check on this in modern Eclipse versions--gave up on it awhile ago). Seeing things like the properties always seemed clunky to me while class browsing, but that could have been IDE ignorance.
The Breadcrumb is a different feature. Unlike what I called the "Smalltalk View", it continues to show the other methods and definitions in the source file. Although I'm not 100% certain, it looks like Maneesh's problem is that only the import statement is visible, which would be consistent with the "Smalltalk View".
@Saurav. A special thank you for the link. I followed the suggestions and managed to turn it off.
The Ctrl+3 idea at the end of the page is something new to me. I must remember it.
I agree with Tim. I would have expected it to be toggle. Also the "secret" icon in Saurav's link is not intuitive. Besides it is available in the toolbar only and nowhere in the menu options.
Oh well! Back to work again.
Thanks once again.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
