Node:Rebuilding the Methods, Previous:Customizing the display, Up:The Methods buffer
In almost all cases there is NO need to manually rebuild the method-buffer, because it is always done automatically if necessary; the mechanism depends on the sources:
global-semantic-auto-parse-modeswitches on autom. reparsing of semantic-sources.
imenu-auto-rescan. But nevertheless you have to manually rebuild the Method-buffer (with the autom. updated imenu-tags) via the command
ecb-rebuild-methods-buffer(bound to C-c . r).
Besides for etags-supported non-semantic-sources there exist a few rare scenarios also for the other sources where a complete manual rebuild can be necessary. Here is one example:
Depending on the semantic-version: If an Elisp-file is parsed which contains a defun X in the middle where the closing ) is missing, then semantic parses only until this defun X is reached and you will get an incomplete ECB-method buffer. In such a case you must complete the defun X and then completely reparse the Elisp-file and rebuild the ECB method buffer!
A complete manually rebuild is done by
ecb-rebuild-methods-buffer. For etags-parsed
non-semantic-sources this causes an automatic saving of the
source-buffer because otherwise etags would not operate with the
