Negating Expressions

When you use code completion in Java, you can finish selection from the suggestion list with an exclamation mark. So doing, the exclamation mark will be placed before a Boolean method or variable being completed, thus negating the whole expression.

To negate an expression

  1. Start typing an expression, and press Ctrl+Space.
  2. In the suggestion list, select the desired part of the expression.
