Description _ tboudreau 2001-11-23 13:24:32 UTC
I'd like to see /** be an abbreviation for something like:




But what would be really nice is if the code that expands this abbreviation could also generate a correctly formatted JavaDoc comment (i.e. figure out what method I'm adding JavaDoc for and generate the correct javadoc comment for the arguments passed to the method).

If you need a multiline comment, see issue 23571, if you  
need to create a javadoc comment why don't you use the 
"tools -> correct javadoc", seems to be doing what you're 
asking for... if that's the case, maybe you can close the 
issue, if it's the former mark as a duplicate of 23571... if not, 
well, maybe I misunderstood your problem :-)

Changed subcomponent to documentation.
Comment 6 _ tboudreau 2005-01-24 16:10:27 UTC
Are you sure the documentation subcomponent  is correct here?  Maybe the Editor team uses 
it differently, but traditionally we've used the documentation subcomponent to indicate a bug 
in the javadoc of a module's API, not the editor's support for javadoc.
Comment 7 tomzi 2005-02-09 12:07:07 UTC
You could also automatically add @param @return .. tags. This would be
way faster than using the auto completion dialogue box each time i
create a new method and thus would definately improve usability.

I've seen that jDeveloper suppports that, I'm not certain with Eclipse...
Comment 8 Miloslav Metelka 2005-02-10 10:19:02 UTC
I think we should finally implement this for promoF.
Once implemented we should IMHO change the behavior of the Enter
pressed at the end of the line inside Javadoc comment - currently it
inserts '<indent>*' i.e.

     * typed text

 as the user may want to type '/' to end the comment. After
implementation of this enhancement we should start adding an extra
space after '*' i.e.

     * typed text
     * |

as the closing '*/' was inserted automatically.
Comment 9 Roman Strobl 2005-02-10 10:24:49 UTC
Mila, I completely agree, this is how other IDEs have it, let's do it
this way.
