Description mg11 2008-05-21 07:32:37 UTC

In NetBeans 6.1 it is not possible to use java code templates "string literal". You can reproduce this by typing:

  System.out.println("Hello World <position to insert code template>");

Put the course at the positions "<position to insert code template>" and try to call a code template. I used in NetBeans
6.0 quite frequently the code templates:

  Abbreviation:  si
  Expanded Text: '" + ${cursor} + "'	

  Abbreviation:  sin
  Expanded Text: " + ${cursor} + "	

But they do not work anymore with NetBeans 6.1 within "string literal". Thank you for the feedback.

How does you response is going to look? How much time does it normally take until you get a feedback on a issue?

Thank you.

The problem is that string literals has different mime-type than the rest of java file and the code template are
mime-type specific, unfortunately the string mime type is not listed by default. See issue 128019

verified, this is good candidate for patch3

mg11: the easies will be to wait, I've nominated this fix to be included in patch3. 
The other possibilities are 
- use dev builds
- get sources for 6.1 and apply the fix manually (it's quite simple fix) a compile.
