PyCharm Edu 2018.1 Help

Creating Imports

In this section:

Introduction

When you reference a class that has not been imported, PyCharm Edu helps you locate this file and add it to the list of imports. You can import a single class or an entire package, depending on your settings.

The import statement is added to the imports section, but the cursor does not move from the current position, and your current editing session does not suspend. This feature is known as the Import Assistant.

The same possibility applies to the XML files. When you type a tag with an unbound namespace, the import assistant suggests to create a namespace and offers a list of appropriate choices.

Importing packages on the fly

To import packages on-the-fly, follow these steps:

  1. Start typing a name in the editor. If the name references a class that has not been imported, the following prompt appears:
    python import

    If the pop-up annoys you, change this behavior for the current file. Just click Hector hector in the Status bar, and clear the check box Import Pop-up:

    import popup

    The unresolved references will be underlined, and you will have to invoke intention action Add import explicitly.

  2. Press Alt+Enter. If there are multiple choices, select the desired import from the list.
