First of all Alt+F7 would give you almost the same as Gtrl+Shift+G in Eclipse besides that you don't have to touch the mouse in order to define scope of the lookup. Marking the occurrences of a variable works the same way in IntelliJ and Eclipse, besides that in Eclipse you can toggle the highligh and in IntelliJ you press a shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F7 but no essential difference in the result for me. Just as a reminder, Find usages helps you quickly find all pieces of code referencing a symbol at the caret, within a file or in the whole project. The checkbox is available for class usage search only. . Ctrl+Alt+ left right arrow is a very useful shortcut for such purpose. Btw: I changed the keyboard layout.
Smart Code Completion Typing is just tying, right? IntelliJ provides a number of iteration templates for various types of loops. Thanks for pointing out some combinations I didn't know. You can use ctrl-alt-shift-f7 to adjust the scope of your find-usages search to Project and libraries. The checkbox is available for interface usage search only. But in case the list is too long it would be nice to have. So for instance we have a collection of elements and by typing iter and the expansion key we'll generate a foreach loop iterating the collection in context. Skip results tab with one usage Select this checkbox to be navigated directly to the found usage without the Find tool window displayed, when only one usage is found.
And the great thing is that if you want to figure out who calls the callers, you can expand the tree. Verbose code kills my productivity I think he's wrong. Whenever a caret hits any place in the code this place is remembered and you can go back and forward in the your browsing history. Search for text occurrences Select this checkbox to have text contents and comments involved in searching. Even such simple feature is much usable in IntelliJ. Please try out the plugin and let us know what you think and what you would like to see in it. After that you can return back to the bookmarked location by pressing Ctrl+ e.
The dialog opens when you click in the Show Usages pop-up window which lists all the occurrences of the symbol at caret. The screencast below demonstrates this feature: In Eclipse, the bookmarking functionality , but it lacks same level of usability as in IntelliJ - no shortcuts by default and not that simple to use without the mouse. Most of the code completion is implemented, but support for macros is a work in progress. For example, you may notice that a method is being called by a test but no production code so it should be deleted. Item Description Find In this area, specify the objects to search. Class Options Edit Find Find Usages Alt+F7 This section describes the controls for specifying Class Usage Search and Interface Usage Search options in the Find Usages dialog box. This is quite useful if your classes are not sharing the same hierarchy.
However, it has some powerful aspects that may improve your coding productivity greatly. In the same way Dataflow from Here option shows where the values go to from the usage. Select a pre-defined scope from the drop-down list or click the Browse button to open the dialog box, where you can define a custom scope. The simplest way to implement the words scanner is to use the implementation, passing to it the sets of lexer token types which are treated as identifiers, literals and comments. With the power of IntelliJ you now get completions in Mapping and ValueMapping annotations also for nested mappings ;. Apart from that you also get support for: finding usages of methods directly within annotations, going to declarations from annotations, highlighting support within annotations and refactoring support. At first it seems that the feature is implemented the same way in IntelliJ and Eclipse but if you dig deeper and start really using it - you'll notice the difference.
But in IntelliJ, I can only find the usage in the source code of my own project. To have the title of the found element be correctly displayed in the title of the Find Usages tool window, you need to provide an implementation of the interface. In Eclipse, I can easily find out where is a method used in all jars in the classpath. Scope In this area, specify the of search. Again, IntelliJ takes the feature a bit further in respect to usability but I'm quite biased on this. Ctrl+Shift+N will help you to open any resource. Ctrl+J will popup a list of all the templates available and can be filtered by the template name.
Next steps We would like to add support for Inspections and Quick Fixes for recommended usages of MapStruct. The text of each element is broken into words and then scanned. And what does Eclipse suggests me? The word cache will be used to search for the text returned from the method. Feel free to share your feedback and submit bug reports in our. Another useful feature available in Find Usages tool window is Preview Usages, which shows a preview for a selected usage. List and a name of the class I'm declaring this field in. If the element was indexed as an identifier, every word is checked to be a resolving to the element the usages of which are searched.
Often when you navigate the source code you jump over class hierarchies, browse different methods, open type declarations, etc. Basically, it is not hard to navigate the code with Emacs or Vim, but it would limit you only to a basic navigation options. For instance, from interface method declaration to any of the implementations. I find options 4 show history and 5 annotate particularly useful. Download You can find the plugin in the Jetbrains Plugins repository. Let's see what are the navigation features in IntelliJ.
