Completing statements

The Smart Enter completion enables you to create syntactically correct code constructs.

To automatically complete a statement, follow these steps:

  • Start typing a statement, and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

    The punctuation required in the current context is added and the caret moves to the next editing position.

Examples

Completing a method declaration

Start typing a method declaration, and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter after the opening parenthesis:
