Description jrojcek 2006-04-11 10:03:12 UTC
Finding	
Participant wrote method usage first and then wanted to write its declaration. Expected that the code 
completion would offer the method name. It didn't. Participant said: "The name is right here" (it was 2 
lines above :-). He had to write it manually. The code and cursor position when he invoked code 
completion was:

		static {
		    readWords();
		}
		
		private static void rea|
		                       ^ cursor
		
Severity	
1 participant expected this behavior.

Recommendation	
Provide code completion in this situation offering the method name.

Still not working properly, even though some offer is made the function name is
not on the list.
Comment 2 Jan Becicka 2007-10-17 14:30:06 UTC
User can use create method hint.
Comment 3 Jiri Prox 2008-04-11 00:42:06 UTC

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
