JADE Environment Development Ideas

Allow method renaming directly in the source

It would be nice if you could directly rename a method by changing the name in the signature in the editor directly rather than having to use the Rename Method dialog.

Jade could pop up a confirmation dialog to confirm that a method rename is what was intended. (Are you sure you want to rename this method?)

    If the carat is positioned in the method name in the editor, an even quicker/easier option is to use the Shift+F2 keyboard shortcut to go straight into the rename dialog. Saves hunting for the relevant item on the context menu. The same shortcut also works for renaming parameters, constants, and variables in the method.

    And I tried it in 2020, and those capabilities are already there. Duh.

    It would be really nice if in the editor you could right click on the method name to get a drop down. One option could be rename, another could be references. When you change the signature it would be handy to be able to directly bring up the references.
