I don't know if this is a bug, but in Java, if I write the following code, and hit ctrl+space (autocomplete) with the cursor just after
the opening bracket
, I get a list of matching method definitions, so for the following example I get println(), println(boolean b), println(char x), etc. etc.
I use this feature all the time in Java, since it helps remind me which parameters I need to pass to the method.
In the Scala IDE, I get a list of autocomplete stuff, but it doesn't include the method signatures at the top, like Java does.Edit (for the feature described below see ticket #1000954
Furthermore, if I hit F2 with the cursor in the method name (e.g. after "pri" and before "ntlin" in the example above), then in Java it shows me the Javadoc, including the method signature, even if there is a compiler error.
In the Scala IDE, F2 just shows me the error, which doesn't always include the signature, so I am clueless as to what parameters I have to pass to the parameter.
My wish would be for the Scala IDE to behave the same as the Java IDE, if possible.
