overriding typing ')' char action behaviour

Postby as3boyan » Tue Sep 24, 2013 6:09 pm

NetBeans does something like this:
where | - caret position. If I will try to type ')' again, and if there all brackets closed - it will just move caret one character forward instead of inserting ')'. Seems like I need to override some typing action to do that, I saw, you got some action like, move one character forward, or maybe I need to subclass typing action.

I could do this by adding KeyListener, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea.

The AutoComplete library has support for this, which is used by RSTALanguageSupport for e.g. C function completions and Java method completions.

You should look at ParameterizedCompletions such as FunctionCompletion, and perhaps also TemplateCompletions.
