The popup-menu of the Methods-buffer offer two entries for either hiding or showing the block which is related to the selected tag (that tag for which the popup-menu was opened):
hs-hide-blockfrom the hideshow-library which is shipped with (X)Emacs. After that the block is hidden, i.e. only the header-line of that tag (method, variable etc.) is visible, the rest is hidden behind the “...”.
hs-show-block. This shows the related hidden block if the block was hidden via
hs-hide-blockor the menu-entry “Jump to tag and hide block” (s.a.).
For this feature the library hideshow.el is used which should normally being included in the (X)Emacs-distribution. If this library is not loaded into Emacs, ECB does this automatically before the first call to one of these menu-entries.
IMPORTANT: If in some
major-mode hiding and showing does not
work as you expect it to work then you must probably add an entry for
major-mode to the hideshow-variable
hs-special-modes-alist. See the documentation of this variable
for further details. One example of such a
jde-mode of the Java Development Environment JDEE; just add an
entry for it like the already contained entries for
java-mode and hiding and showing will work for you with JDEE
