Postfix Completion

File | Settings | Editor | General | Postfix Completion


Postfix code completion lets you transform an already typed expression to another one based on the postfix you type after a dot, the type of the expression, and its context. This transformation is performed by expanding the postfix-specific predefined template. For example, the .if postfix applied to a boolean expression wraps it with an if statement. See more at: Postfix Code Completion.

On this page, enable and disable postfix templates and appoint key to activate the template expansion.

Table of available postfix templates The table below shows the list of available postfix templates. To enable or disable a template, select or clear the check box next to it. When you select a template, the right-hand pane shows its description and illustrates how it works by displaying the expression before and after the selected template is applied.
