I am creating HTML page in eclipse.
Can I include HTML tags from eclipse ? By that I mean, if I want to include JSP tags (scriptlet, include, expression or declaration), I can open snippet view and include these tags from there in to the JSP page.
Can I include HTML tags like this ? Is there any view which contains all the HTML tags and I can include it directly in HTML page ?
I tried top check in different views, but could not find any.

Thanks

Please be sure to ask IDE questions in the IDEs forum. I have moved this post there for you.

Yes, you can include HTML tags in an HTML page, after all, that is what an HTLM page is. Also, you can include JavaScript tags and JavaScript. For a JSP file you can also include JSP tags.

But that answer seems too simplistic. So maybe I am not understanding the question. Are you asking whether there is a WYSIWYG editor for HTML? Or what is it that you are really asking.

If I am creating JSP page and want to include an expression in the code, I dont need to type tags for expression in editor, I can just click on expression in snippet and expression syntax will be included in editor.

Like this, if I want to include an image in HTML page, is there any view available where I can just click on the img in that view and syntax for that tag is included in editor ? If yes, in what view ?

Thanks

You are asking for a WYSYWIG editor that includes a component palette. Eclipse does not have such a capability, but JBoss Tools provides such a capability.

From a text point of view, though, you should be able to type the first few letters of a tag (example: "<im") and then hit CTRL-SPACE and Eclipse should present several completion options. You can edit this list of completion items in Preferences under Web | HTML Files | Editor | Templates.

By the way, I assume that you downloaded and installed the Eclipse package identified by "Eclipse for Java EE Developers".>
