TIP: Structural selection in Netbeans 6.0 Java editor

In this entry I had talked about the Structural selection in Netbeans Java editor. The keybindings for the same functionality have changed in NetBeans 6.0. The new keybindings are:

  • Alt+Shift+. - successively selects outer syntactic element. Statement -> Surrounding Block Statements -> Surrounding Block Statements -> Surrounding Method -> Surrounding Class and so on. I use this for quick selection.
  • Alt+Shift+, - successively selects inner syntactic element. This works only if you had expanded the selection using the Alt+Shift+. . This helps me fine tune the selection if I went too far.


 

Comments:

Doesn't work on a Danish keyboard, only Alt+Shift+. anyway.

I see. I will convey this info to the developer.

You can change the key binding by going to Tools:Options:Keymap:Other:Select Next Element and Select Previous Element.

Doesn't matter which key I bind to, "Select previous element" does nothing on NB6b1 with Danish keyboard.
