Is there an option to keep function name at top of screen

Postby rafig » Tue Jun 04, 2024 8:27 pm

Hi,
might be a stupid question and/or the answer might be somewhere here already (but I couldn't find it)

Is there a way in Eclipse to make the name of the function that you are in when scrolling stay at the top of the screen (with line number...) as Visual Studio Code does (but I have no idea what option is set there for that...)

[what I mean is that if I am in the middle of a large function in the editor, I want to see it's name & params stay at top of screen even when I have scrolled past it, or when searching for some text and then jumping to it, I want to see at a glance what function I land in]

See this screen shot

As can be seen, my function name is on line 572, but that has scrolled off & line 574 is now at top, but VS Code still displays function details...

Thanks

Hi Rafi

Sticky Scroll is not supported in Eclipse, as far as I know. But similar to this feature is a split editor: Go to menu Servoy > Window > Editor > Toggle Split Editor.

Hope, this helps.

Hi Rafi,

not exactly what you were asking for but...
if you keep an "outline" view open it will highlight the current function + it's parameters

Thank you both Birgit & Jo
shame that 'sticky scroll' isn't supported (and thanks for clarifying what it was called :wink: )
Both great suggestions though :D
Thanks
