JDT Quick-Fix Question : Smart Insert of Semicolon ?? [message #29638] Fri, 25 February 2005 17:39 Go to next message

I pressed Ctrl-Shift-Insert to enable this mode. the mode is displayed in
the lower part of the ide. I changed the preferences in order to enable
the insertion of semicolons.

BUT: how does it work now?!

I would suggest an automatically semicolon if i type like

String test = "test"

No semicolon:((

In IDEA there is a key binding, that 'finishs' the line. If i press in the
above example Ctrl-Shift-Enter the semicolon is added. Furthermore if you
have a line like

if ( 3==5

pressing Ctrl-Shift-Enter will change the code to

if ( 3==5 ) {


Is there a equivalent quick fix extension in eclipse?!
How does the smart insertion work?

Thanks in advance, Leif

Hi, interestingly enough, it looks like there is no such function in Eclipse yet.

But there seems to be a plug-in for that:, which I have found on this page:
