Go To Action (CTRL+Shift+A) feature

Hi,

Very useful feature. It would be much more useful, if it searched the typed in phrase anywhere in the action names and not just at the start of them. So when I type in "usage" I want to see "Find usages".
Also support for camlehumps or whatever it is called would be nice "FU" would find "Find Usages" "CS" would find "Change Signature" and so on.
If you would initially show the list of most common actions in a given context, I could dump my NaviActionPad plugin :). But seriously, this could be quite useful. IDEA would track the actions I execute most often when the cursor is on a method name or on a directory and show this list the next time I press CTRLShiftA on a similar element.

Cheers,
Robert

Hello Robert,

Strange. It works for me ...

Also support for camlehumps or whatever it is called would be nice
"FU" would find "Find Usages" "CS" would find "Change Signature" and
so on.

Do you mean to order actions or to provide "predefined" actions according
to usage statistics?

Thank you

Well, I don't know, but for me it didn't. Maybe your version is already ahead of the one in the current EAP :)

Also support for camlehumps or whatever it is

called would be nice

"FU" would find "Find Usages" "CS" would find

"Change Signature" and

so on.

Great.

actions in a given

context, I could dump my NaviActionPad plugin :).

could be quite useful. IDEA would track the actions

I execute most

often when the cursor is on a method name or on a

directory and show

this list the next time I press CTRLShiftA on a

similar element.

"predefined" actions according

I only thought about the predefined actions. So when I hit CTRLShiftA I get the list of actions I used the last few times on a similar element. This list would most likely look different when the currently active elemen is a class or a method. It would not just contain the last 10 actions. It would contain the last 10 actions the the specific kind of element.
But your idea is also great. So when I type in "find" and the most time I type in "Find in Path", "Find in Path" should make it to the top of the list. So I don't have to scroll through the list of find actions to get to the one I execute most often.

How about defaulting to the list of the 10 most recently used commands when the box is first shown, then keep those that apply on top when filtering is started. Basically, stack the results of the most recently used on top of the all list.

Hi Anna,

Just another idea for this feature: It would be cool, if I could find live templates through Go To Action. It would be nice if I could type in "iter 5" and would get "Iterate Iterable | Array in JSDK 5.0 syntax".

Cheers,
Robert
