Growing up I never imagined I would play bass guitar for the Dave Matthews Band. And indeed it never happened.

Add a keyboard shortcut to a Builder extension

January 17, 2012

To set up a keyboard shortcut to a ColdFusion Builder extension:

  1. Use the extension at least once.
  2. Open Preferences > General > Keys
  3. In the 'type filter text' field type part of the extension name
  4. Select the extension
  5. Enter a binding. Click on 'Apply'.

So far I have found this works with extensions that open a view. I find it quite useful for Codey.

I've always liked how flexible Eclipse is with its keyboard shortcuts. Two of my customized favorites are command-shift-Z (control-shift-Z) for a quick view of the navigator and command-shift-A (control-shift-A) for the MXUnit view (good for making reds go green).
