Description jonathanlocke 2009-01-22 17:56:08 UTC
command-option-r should do an in-place renaming refactor
Comment 1 Vitezslav Stejskal 2009-02-12 14:42:28 UTC
And what does command-option-r do? If anything? Thanks
Comment 2 Jiri Kovalsky 2009-03-30 14:22:21 UTC
Vita Stejskal agreed that he would review and integrate a patch for this issue contributed by the NetFIX [1] team.

Comment 3 tusharvjoshi 2009-08-05 10:27:29 UTC
Currently NetBeans support Command+R for instant renaming if the Eclipse keybindings are selected.  
Eclipse has a shortcut Command+Option+R for instant renaming in Mac (checked with Eclipse Ganymede 3.4)
I have managed changing this shortcut to the desired one and tested, and it works.

The windows bindings for instant renaming are also Control+R 
Where as Eclipse has bindings SHIFT+ALT+R which can also be done.  

Is this understanding correct?  If yes then I will attach the patch with this issue for review, according to the NetFIX

with regards

Comment 6 tusharvjoshi 2009-08-05 14:00:57 UTC
To test this patch functionality

1. Activate Java SE plugin
2. Select Eclipse Key Bindings from Preferences dialog box
3. In any Java class file try to put cursor on a variable name identifier and press the shortcut key combination.
4. In place rename feature shall get activated

I had to tweak the patch a little bit. There are two rename actions in the IDE - in-place rename and full scale
refactoring rename. The both ought to have the same shortcut. In Eclipse profile they both now have Alt-Shift-R on
Windows and Command-Option-R on Mac.
