Option for creation of lean function code

I have created a JIRA ticket for this and would like to get voters on it, as this is something I would really be happy about:

When adding functions to a form, e.g. the onAction function for a button or the onDataChange function for a field, Servoy adds comments like this:
* Perform the element default action.
* @param {JSEvent} event the event that triggered the action
* @private
* @properties= {typeid:24,uuid:"7C90D813-17BA-43F7-8457-C204FAB9F1A9"}
function onAction(event) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

As I like my code to be without any noise, I currently take out all those red comments for each new function, which is quite a bit of work when writing a lot of functions.

Therefore, an option to let Servoy create such functions without such comments would be great.
The ticket is here:

I think that option exists already. If you create your method first, then you can define it however you want. Open up the .js file, type:
Code: Select all
function myfunction(myparam){

Then click save. Servoy generates a much more basic JSDoc. Then assign that function to your action/event.

The advantage of the creation from inside the form is that the object is directly hooked to the function that you create.
But you are right, I should code first in the js, using the powerful template function of Eclipse to build my own snippets and then hook the function to the form or field.
