I know that we can fold methods,if statement and ... .But I want to fold arbitrary part of code that is written in a method.I guess that in NetBeans we can do this:

// <editor-fold desc="describe what is in here">
Your code goes here...
// </editor-fold>

But now I'm developing in Eclipse.Here is a propose,but it did not work for me.Do you know any way to do that?

Which version of Eclipse? How did that solution not work for you? Did you add the braces? Did you not see the - sign allowing you to collapse what was in between the braces? – Karan Feb 12 '13 at 22:31
@Karan I'm using Eclipse Helios.I added braces and I did not see any sign(- or + ). – hasanghaforian Feb 13 '13 at 7:21
