 Thanks.  Keep these discoveries coming.  I will be attempting this soon.

substance, value, and content that I just try to make sure that I am working on 
things that matter.

Subject: Eclipse Discovery About Code Completion


I made a discovery just now because I was writing some JAWS code to examine 
what was popping up in some Eclipse windows. This is about code completion. 


As you are typing along in a Java program and you want to get a list of code 
completion choices, do this.


1. type part of a class, such as System, then a period.


2. As soon as you press the period key, immediately press the Tab key. That 
puts you in a list of choices. 


3. Pick a choice and press Enter.


4. press the period key again, then Tab again.


5. Pick a choice.


I'm sure you get the pattern by now. 


There's more to discover, such as what happens when you hit Control + Space and 
Control + Shift + Space, but I haven't figured out that yet.
