TIP: Structural selection in Netbeans 6.0 Java editor
By sandipchitale on Oct 17, 2007
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.
