Description nigjo_iqn 2011-07-19 07:55:23 UTC
When I (accidentally) create a method like this:

  public void getValue(){
    // do some stuff
  }

I realize that I missed the return type and statement. If I add this return statement, 
  public void getValue(){
    // do some stuff
    return 42;
  }
NetBeans only shows an error "cannot return a value from method whose result type is void".

It would be nice to provide a refactoring hint: "You typed a return statement which doesn't match the current return type. Should I
a) remove this return statement, or
b) change the return type"

Hi. Great new feature.
A couple of suggestion. How about having the option to modify the return type to void of no returns are specified?

Also, when implementing a method which overrides a superclass og implements an interface, how about getting the option to modify the signature of the overridden method?
