I am using Eclipse Helios.

When I am typing a code, Eclipse automatically completes the code when I write methods and other stuff. This is annoying for me, as I want to write all the code by myself, not that the IDE writes it for me by completing it. However, I like when it popsup the suggestion box so I can see what method, etc. I can use.

For example, the closing parenthesis and brackets, etc.
Every time I write an opening bracket or parenthesis, Eclipse automatically closes it and put my cursor where I suppose to write the code between the brackets or parenthesis.
But I already disabled that feature (specifically for auto closing).

I want to disable the features that adds parameters to the methods and closes the parenthesis of the methods.

This is what happens that I do not like:

- I write: frame. (the Proposals box popsup, which is fine for me).
-Then continue: frame.setVisible( [when I write the "(" it closes automatically and puts the parameter type that I am suppose to write)
-The final outcome: frame.setVisible(Boolean) [the underlined part is what I DO NOT like and want to disable]


only when I make a mistake when writing setVisible is that the autocomplete doesn't completes it, but I won't be making grammar mistakes always just because of that.

If you could help me by telling me where I can disable it, and what I have to write, check, uncheck or whatever have to be done to disable that feature.

Thank you.

You are looking for the Insert single proposals automatically and Fill
method arguments options under the Java->Editor->Content Assist
preferences.

Thanks. The arguments do not appear anymore.

Still, if I write: g2.draw(
it close automatically the parenthesis. :\

If nothing can be done for that, thanks anyway.

There is a preference for that as well. It is on Java->Editor->Typing.

BTW, these features are documented in the Help documentation.
