Mornin' everyone,

In 2009, fommil opened this enhancement bug for me:
It had a target of 6.8 but was never worked on. Fommil even volunteered to 
work on it provided I got 5 votes.  Does he still work at netbeans?  If so, 
can someone vote for this bug - as it currently is one shy :-)

This feature would be useful to pretty much everyone: people who have 
multiple projects open where they might have multiple versions/revisions of 
same class; people who work on a single large project with lots of 
third-party libraries where the third-party library class names are the same 
as the project's.

Related to this feature, I found this even older one from 2008:
It asks that code completion show project classes first.  I'm not sure why he 
used the words "code completion" - I think he meant what my bug described as 
"Go To Type" - but that would be another good alternative (the first bug 
suggests having an option not to show certain types at all).  Finally, it 
would also be nice if code-completion  (e.g. methods/fields shown after 
you've typed the '.' on an instance variable) show project methods/fields 
before base class/third-party class methods/fields (it currently shows them 
alphabetically with project methods in bold).

Anyway, if any of you would like to see the feature, please vote :-)

Best regards,

[nbusers] Option to exclude non-project classes from go-to-type list
