Autocomplete inconsistent with syntactic sugar [message #1735729] Wed, 22 June 2016 09:49 Go to next message

I tried to get the value of a boolean data with the variable name as isValid.

for(m: resource.allContents.toIterable.filter(typeof(Directory)))
{
val info = new Information()
info.setIsValid(m.isValid) //inconsistent
}


On some part of my code, auto complete displays m.isIsValid, which still works perfectly, but is just a sore to my eyes. I would prefer that it expands similarly. Is there a way to set this in Eclipse?

am not sure if i get you

class Information {
	
	def void setIsValid(boolean b) {
		
	}
	
	def boolean getIsValid() {
		true
	}
	
}

class Demo {
	
	def doSth() {
		val i = new Information
		i.isValid = true
		i.isValid == true
	}
	
}

I am using autocomplete in Eclipse. My variable name is "isValid" with boolean type. When I type "m.is" and press Ctrl+Space and choose the correct variable, it will sometimes expand to m.isIsValid, which is technically the same as m.isValid. The variable is declared in xcore. And referred to in xtend.

for(m: resource.allContents.toIterable.filter(typeof(Directory)))
{
val info = new Information()
info.setIsValid(m.isValid) //can also be auto-completed as m.isIsValid
info.setIsValid(m.isIsValid) // works completely ok but is different from the previous line.
}

But then you have strange naming inside your Java bean right
