NetBeans code templates

January 16, 2012

Something I’ve only just discovered the usefulness of is code templates in Netbeans. I always used to have autocomplete set up in Outlook for common phrases like “if you have any queries, please get in touch”, and saved a lot of typing.

Having found the NetBeans templates module for quickly creating common bits of Drupal code, I started digging around in the default NetBeans options, and found that there are all sorts of little timesavers. Here are a few good ones:

Shortcut Template
fore foreach($previously_assigned_variable as $value)
forek foreach($previously_assigned_variable as $key => $value

There is more info on the NetBeans site.
