Eclipse: Can You Hit A KeyBinding To Find The Command It Is Bound To?
I'm new to Eclipse. Is it possible in Eclipse to hit a keybinding and find the name of the command it is bound too?
For example, pressing Ctrl+Shift+R and have something like "open-dialog" come up in a list telling me that Ctrl+Shift+R is bound to the command "open-dialog".
Unfortunately, Eclipse doesn't make this easy. (Related note: IntelliJ IDEA does.) There are a few things that might help you out, though:
- In the Eclipse settings for key bindings, you could do "Export to CSV". Then you can search that document for key combinations.
- Also in the Eclipse settings for key bindings, you can sort the "Binding" column. The list is unwieldy to scroll through, but the ordering of multi-key combinations seems to be well defined so you could eventually find the key combination you're looking for.
- If you want to look up a common command without going into the settings, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to "Show Key Assist". You can't sort the list by key combination, but it's at least a relatively short list to look through.
