JBuilder - How to see the method parameters

JBuilder FAQ: Is there a way I can see the parameters a Java method expects?

Yes, assuming that your cursor is position right after the opn parenthesis, type this magic keystroke:


You will see a list of parameters that the method accepts, and it will not disappear right away.

How did you know that?

I found it one day in the JBuilder menu system. I also heard it at the Borland Developer Conference.

To find it in the JBuilder menu system, select "Tools|Editor Options", then select the "Code Insight" tab. On the bottom of that tab group, click on the "Keystrokes..." button. This capability is known as Parameter Insight.

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