Does Eclipse support "Select in Projects" option like NetBeans?

It opens the file in the project hierarchy in the "Project Explorer" left window.

  • Have you tried it? For those who don't have NetBeans, can you explain what it does? – slhck Dec 29 '12 at 16:26

Eclipse has an option under Navigate to show the currently selected function (or class) in the Project Explorer or Package Explorer, as well as several other windows.

To set a keyboard shortcut to this specific item, go to the Keys preferences under General.

  • Is there a shortcut for directly doing show in project explorer ? – Vivek Goel Dec 29 '12 at 17:55
