I am using eclipse for my projects.. Just found a cool feature in it… It is commenting with TODO. ie., If you comment inside eclipse like:
//TODO Change this by tomorrow
then Eclipse will add a new task with the description “Change this by tomorrow” and for TODO tasks. Along with the description, the line number and the file name are also noted. So, when you double click this task on the Tasks view, it will directly take you to the comment line.
You can add your own keywords to act like TODO by selecting Windows->Preferences. In the “type filter text” text box, type: “task tags” In the resultant view you can add new key words or as they call it “Task tags” and set their priority too.
This feature is very handy to take quick notes and keep track of what you are doing.
WARNING: To view the added tasks, you have to open the Tasks window. Tasks Window is different from Task List Window. To open Tasks window : window -> show view -> other… > general > tasks. If you don’t see general, try typing “task” in the filter text box. Hope this helps you. I was breaking my head without knowing this…
Its very late now and I have to sleep. Hope this post help you. If it is so, please leave a comment… , It motivates me.
