Getting help from Content Assist commands

Before you can get help from the Content Assist command (Ctrl+Space), you must select Java Proposals.

  1. Select Window > Preferences > Java > Editor > Content Assist > Advanced.
  2. In Default Proposal Kinds pane, select the Java Proposals check box and click Apply.
  3. Click OK.

    By default, Java Proposals is not selected. You can also check other proposal types and see how these are cycled through when content assist is repeatedly invoked.
