FaqSynchronization

NetBeans 3.x used to remind me about methods to be added when implementing an interface. Is this feature gone in 4.x and later?

NetBeans 5.x, 6.x:

 This feature was replaced by a feature called "Hints" (a.k.a "Light Bulb"). If you add an interface to the implements clause, a light bulb appears and enables you to add all of the required methods.

  Applies to: NetBeans 5.x, 6.x
  Platforms: All

NetBeans 4.x:

The feature (called Synchronization) is still available in NetBeans 4.x.

However, many users found the automatic reminder intrusive, so the default setting has been changed to off in NB 4.x. If you want to turn the automatic synchronization on, go to Tools | Options | Editing | Java Sources | Source Synchronization and turn on the Synchronization Enabled option.

You can also invoke the Synchronization manually at any time, using the Tools | Synchronization menu command.


  Applies to: NetBeans 4.0, 4.1
