Node:Expanding, Next:Customizing the display, Previous:Visiting tokens, Up:The Methods buffer
With the command
ecb-expand-methods-nodes (bound to C-c .
x) you can get a fast overlook of the contents of the source-buffer,
because this command allows precisely expanding tokens with a certain
indentation-level. So you can either expand no tokens (or with other
words collapse all tokens) or expand all tokens so see the contents of
a buffer at one glance. Or you can expand exactly that tokens of a
certain indentation level.
Which node-types are expanded (rsp. collapsed) by this command
depends for semantic-sources on the options
ecb-methods-nodes-collapse-spec! For non-semantic-sources always
all node-types are expanded/collapsed, i.e. the two options above
takes no effect for these files.
If the option
ecb-highlight-token-with-point is switched on,
then then always that node in the method-buffer is highlighted which
belongs to the current semantic-token under point in the edit-window.
But if this node is invisible (probably because its parent node is
collapsed) then no node is highlighted if the auto. expanding feature
is switched off.
You can either switch on this feature with the option
ecb-auto-expand-token-tree or even easier with the command
There is another option
ecb-expand-methods-switch-off-auto-expand which makes both
explicit and auto. expanding best working together. See the
documentation of this option to get the details.
The autom. expanding feature is only available for semantic-sources!
