      Using content assist
    </h1>
    <p>
      In this section you will use <em>content assist</em> to finish writing a new
      method. Open the file <em>junit.samples/VectorTest.java</em> in the Java
      editor if you do not already have it open and select the <code>testSizeIsThree()</code> method
      in the Outline view. If the file doesn't contain such a method see <a href="qs-AddMethod.htm">Adding new methods</a>
      for instructions on how to add this method.
    </p>
    <ol>
      <li>
        Replace the <tt>TODO</tt> comment with the following lines.
        <p>
          <code>
            assertTrue(fFull.size() == 3);<br>
            Vector v = new Vector();<br>
            for (int i=0; i&lt;3; i++)<br>
            &nbsp;&nbsp;v.addElement(new Object());<br>
            assert<br>
          </code>
        </p>  
      </li>
      <li>
        With your cursor at the end of the word <code>assert</code>, press <kbd>Ctrl+Space</kbd> to activate content assist. The content assist window with a list of
        proposals will appear. Scroll the list to see the available choices.

      </li>
      <li>
        With the content assist window still active, type the letter 't'
        in the source code after <code>assert</code> (with no space in between). The list is narrowed and only shows entries
        starting with 'assert'. Single-click various items in the list to view any available Javadoc help for each item.

      </li>
      <li>
        Select <code>assertTrue(boolean)</code> from the list and press <kbd>Enter</kbd>. The code for the <code>assertTrue(boolean)</code> method is inserted.
      </li>
      <li>
        Complete the line so that it reads as follows:<br>
        <p><code>
        assertTrue(v.size() == fFull.size());
        </code></p>
      </li>
      <li>
        Save the file.
