Java List Navigator - plugin detail

Adds an alternate class member view to the Navigator window for Java files. Differences from the standard navigator are that it provides single-click navigation, abbreviates inner class names, and in Sort By Position mode, you can drag method and field entries to change their relative location in a source file.

Introduction

Adds an alternate class member view to the Navigator window for Java files. Note: You also need to install the List Diffs library module in order to install this module.

When I wrote the original Navigator for NetBeans 5.0, it was intended as a tool for quickly navigating around source files. It later evolved to show a tree view as other IDEs do, lost the abbreviation feature to keep the most relevant information visible and other features.

This is a navigator panel that follows the original intent of the Navigator component - specific differences:
  • Uses a list, not a tree, to reduce horizontal scrolling
  • You can sort methods and field alphabetically or by their order in the source code
  • You can move methods and fields to different positions in the source file simply by drag and drop in the navigator panel
  • Abbreviates names of inner classes - i.e FooListener.someMethod is presented as FL.someMethod() to save space
  • Navigation is by single click, not double-click, so you can rapidly move around the source code
It works best if you move the navigator window to the right side of the editor so it takes up the full window height.
