    Default Eclipse DropDown Hints

    Hi Guys

    i dont know if this is possible in eclipse but
    i am looking for a setting that will show me all the methods in a class when importing in the tooltip dropdown

    such as if i type..
    import.java.util.

    nothing shows up however in netbeans it will show a list of all available methods
    i was after util.Random but didn't think it was in there because it wasn't showing up

    is there a setting to change this?

    thanks

    Navigate to Window>Preferences>Java>Editor>Content Assist>Advanced and select the kind of suggestions you want.

    kind regards,
