I learned my first bit of Java using netbeans. But I want to learn android, so I am switching to eclipse. (I want to use the 'officially' supported IDE)
Netbeans has a setting “Auto Popup on Typing Any Java Identifier Part”
This makes it so that the suggestion popup will not just come up automatically after typing ”.”—but will come up automatically almost anytime you are typing. This is handy, as you can just start typing variable names, or anything at all really and it automatically pops up.
I know in eclipse I can press ctrl+space at anytime to bring it up, but would like a way to make it mirror that functionality in netbeans.
