Processor Expert Value Proposals

The cool thing with Processor Expert is that it gives me guidance through the settings. And there is a nice (rather hidden feature) which proposes me values I can enter:

First, switch to the non-Tabs (classic) view, as the classic view is using the screen real estate better, and shows you *all* the information needed, and does not hide some (see https://community.freescale.com/thread/334117).

So if you have some values to correct because other settings have changed:

Values to Enter

Values to Enter

Click into the value field, and a small ‘light bulb’ appears on the left side of the value:

Clicked into the value field

If you move your mouse cursor over the light bulb, you get a hint how to get proposals:

Use Ctrl+Space for proposals

Use Ctrl+Space for proposals

That’s the same shortcut as for the code completion or code assist wizard of Eclipse, see “10 Best Eclipse Shortcuts

Now if I use CTRL+Space, I get a list of proposed values I can select from:

Nice :-)

So the trick is to click into the field to get that light bulb. But you can simply click into the field and press CTRL+Space. The ‘Tabs’ view shows that light bulb as well if you click into the value, but it has no real value, as it shows the drop-down list automatically. In defense of the tab view, showing a drop down list right away is nicer and better.

But as long as I do not have a 20″ LCD on my notebook, I rather use the ‘classic’ view.

Happy Proposing :-)
