Hello everyone. I just want to learn some typing shortcuts that can be used while typing. All I knew ctrl + spacebar:
* type "sysout" then press ctrl + spacebar for System.out.println()
* type keywords then press ctrl + spacebar for suggested keywords etc.
* type a keyword then press ctrl + spacebar if you know that it needs to import a package. it will automatically imported.
I want to know other shortcuts like this to save some time typing. Thanks!
For sure you can see it when you are using the Eclipse IDE. There are shorcuts displayed for each menu in the IDE. You can also find it in Google, here is one example that I found when googling: Eclipse Shorcuts
Ctrl + D
Deletes the current line. By far my most frequently used shortcut in Eclipse.
Ctrl + Up Arrow, Ctrl + Down Arrow
Moves the current line up or down. Also very frequently used.
Ctrl + /
Sets the current line to be a comment. This works as a toggle: if the current line is already commented, this shortcut un-comments it making it active code.
If you type all the upper-case letters in the name of a class, then press Ctrl + space, Eclipse will replace it with the name of the class. If you type only some of the upper case letters, such that more than one class can match, Eclipse will open a list and allow you to select the class you need.
