even better aliases
« on: May 16, 2010, 08:30:41 PM »
Hi everyone,

I was wondering, is it possible to make the aliases that expand write in more than one field.. It's kind of difficult to explain:

Basically in IDEs like eclipse, or editor textmate, one can create a snippet in which as you fill in the name of the fields
you specify it is filled out everywhere you need to fill it out, thus saving typing. So for example, if I were to create a snippet
for the for loop, I would have to type the index variable only once, and it would be filled out everywhere that it is needed.
Can you achieve this same effect in SE?


(oops I noticed I posted this in the wrong subforum, could someone move it, thanx)

Oh man would this rock! The parameter dialog *works* but zing, it's so nice for my flow of thought when it all happens in-line without the jarring dialog popup.

At some point, we will definitely implement this.
