Hi all,

I am new to eclipse shifted from netbeans. Does eclipse has a feature f auto usage finder on selecting a part of code ?

Say I create a simple java file helloWorld.java.
In that i create and use variable int abc 10 times.

What I want is As soon I click or select the variable abc in the code it other multiple usages should be highlited by some fill color and it should also be shown in side column bar as it does for showing error messages

I dont want to click CTLR+F for doing this.
This feature is there in netbeans.

I hope u understand what I am looking for

Thanks

Venkat

Something like this. Among other options, if you double-click an
identifier, all other occurrences of it are color-filled highlighted in
the editor and, if your contract/brightness/color settings are adequate
for your monitor, down the right-hand side there will be markers you can
click to go to occurrences.

In my eclipse that option was not checked hence all other occurrences were not highlighted

Thanks once again

Venkat
