Right to brass tax,

Right from the 'What's New' documentation for Eclipse Kepler:

If a void method is selected during content assist, then a semicolon is now automatically appended at the end of the method invocation.

Does anyone know if there is a way to disable or remove this functionality.

My code never has bugs... it just develops unexpected features!

lol, thats what I figured the answer was going to be!  Grin Oh well, I guess they mean well by it, but for me it is really annoying. It isn't consistent enough for me to get used to, because it only auto inserts the semicolon for void methods, so I more often than not end up putting two semicolons in. haha!

Sad If NetBeans inserts symbols for you then typing the character that comes next produces the same sequence of characters as if the feature were disabled. It really surprises me more than it should to see subtle features missing in any project like that. IDEs especially because their programmers don't have the excuse of not using the software they program. Of course people just use whatever features they are habitually used to. There's probably a setting to disable it but it's probably also well hidden and undocumented.

I don't understand a situation where this would be annoying, and also have looked around at all the preferences and options about auto-fill there is quite a lot one of which may give the solution. When I get back from dinner I may have a look for you.

Preferences -> Java->Editor->Typing

Checkbox 'Automatically insert at correct position: semicolons' ?

I'm a pretty self sufficient guy, the only reason I am even asking here is because I have exhausted everything that I can do myself. So, in that light, I assure you there is no such option.

This will auto-insert a semicolon where ever it is needed anywhere in the code. The feature that I am referring to only inserts a semicolon when selecting a void method from the content assist. If you select a method that takes parameters then it does not insert a semicolon. I personally don't like the auto completion stuff like auto-inserting closing parenthesis, quotes, brackets and the like. Just the way I like / am used to coding.

zngga, Oddly I always have that enabled, but I've never seen an automatic semicolon in my life.

 Huh

Weird stuff. I use Kepler at home, but I've never "seen" this behavior you refer to. I put that between quotes because I may have actually seen it but never registered it as something unhelpful.

Kepler puts in a semicolon where I don't expect it all the time. I hate it. Cry

Dear god, it even puts in a semicolon if there is already one there. Idiots! It's seriously enough to make me try a different IDE.

It's a feature not a bug. Insert unnecessary condescending comment about programming skill. Flaunt 1337 skill in archaic computer environment. Insert another whiny condescending remark about good for nothing users not understanding what it's like to be a programmer.

Deer god, indeed. What's the purpose of the broken feature? I would like to know what makes whole teams of people think updates like that are ready for deployment while more useful and stable experimental features are normally disabled by default or at least treated more conservatively. IDEs, too, of all things!

Luckily you have the option to use an older version. And you don't have security or compatibility problems like web browsers force upon you if you choose to downgrade.

I hear ya there buddy! lol! I think I am just going to downgrade for now, I still have the deb for Ubuntu chilling on my hard drive somewhere.

On a side note, anyone have a really solid recommendation for a new / different / preferably better IDE?

I could downgrade, it just makes me sad what they do to my nice IDE. I like Eclipse. I want to like Eclipse. They make it hard with stupid crap like this. Sad

zngga, IntelliJ IDEA I guess. I'd like to try it, but I'm productive now in Eclipse and I'm honestly worried how long I would be unproductive making the change, especially in the middle of projects.

If you want something clean, simple, and fancy, I would highly recommend Sublime Text.

That is, if you don't mind setting up the compiler and what-not.
