Android Studio is derived from a program called IntelliJ IDEA, with which it shares some powerful features. The program automatically completes potential code entries, rapidly increasing your productivity. In addition, when fixing an item, the program will present a list of possible quick fixes. This also saves time and helps you create programs in Android Studio faster. Learn all about using auto-completion and quick fixes when you watch this online video.
…I've mentioned previously, but it's worth mentioning again, that Android Studio is…based on IntelliJ IDEA, a dynamic,…powerful development environment for Java programming.…Everything you can do in IntelliJ IDEA you can do in Android Studio.…I'm going to show you just a very small fraction of what's possible…And then show you where the documentation is for most of the editing features.…I'll start with code completion.…I'm going to use an example of creating an instance of a class named Random.…
I'll go to the onCreate method in my Activity Class and I'll start with Ran.…Now unsurprisingly, I get a list of all…the available classes that start with that string.…When you press tab, you'll both auto-complete the name of the class…and where required add an input statement to the top of the code.…I'll continue typing with equals new and then I'll once…again start typing the name of the class with simply R.…Now, I can move down to the random class, or if…I see a longer list, I can use the smart Auto Completion.…
