The ECB-Methods ECB-window contains all parsed and recognized tags of the current source-buffer. It is called “Method-buffer” because ECB is mostly designed for browsing sourcecode files and for programming-languages these tags are often methods (and variables etc.) To simplify explanations we talk in the following only about methods and variables - but in general the method-buffer can contain any kind of tags (e.g. sections and subsections for texinfo buffers).
Per default the content of the methods-ECB-window is automatically synchronized and updated with current point of the current source-buffer in the edit-area (see ECB-window synchronizing). This and other important informations about usage of the powerful Methods-window of ECB can be found in The Methods window.
ecb-mouse-click-destination) will jump to the method/variable.
IMPORTANT: If you use the POWER-click (i.e. hold down the SHIFT-key
while clicking with the primary mouse button (see Using the mouse)
or RETURN (see Using the keyboard)) on a node in this buffer then
the edit-buffer will be narrowed to the selected tag (see also
ecb-tag-visit-post-actions). But this works only for
sources parsed by semantic, not by imenu or etags!
Either use one of the predefined layouts which contain the methods
ECB-window (see Changing the ECB-layout) (e.g. via C-c . l
c) or create a new ecb-layout via the command
ecb-create-new-layout and add a buffer of type “methods” into
this new layout (see Creating a new ECB-layout).
See ecb-methods for a list of all options currently available for customizing this ECB-window to your needs.
