Creating Grails Views and Actions

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.

IntelliJ IDEA provides intention actions to create views and actions "from usage".

To create an action from a view

  1. In a Grails *.gsp page, place the caret at a view that refers to a non-existent action.
  2. Press Alt+Enter, and choose Create Action from the suggestion list. The action is created in the controller, with the caret at the insertion point.
  3. Type the meaningful action code.
