How do I browse a symbol with JBuilder?

To browse a symbol when using JBuilder, you just need to use the magic keystroke: [Ctrl][Enter].

When your cursor is positioned on an object or method, hit this keystroke and the world will open up to you (or at least you will see the source code for that object or method).

One caveat: if the source code for that class is not available to JBuilder, you will only see that interface for the class.

How did you know that?

Select Tools|Editor Options, then select the Code Insight tab. On the bottom of that tab group, click on the Keystrokes... button.

Notice that there is also an alternate keystroke, although I prefer the one I told you.
