Getting code suggestions

GitHub Copilot offers coding suggestions as you type. For example, in a Java file, create a class by typing class Test.

GitHub Copilot will automatically suggest a class body in grayed text. Para aceitar a sugestão, pressione Tab.

You can also describe something you want to do using natural language within a comment, and Copilot will suggest the code to accomplish your goal. For example, type this comment in a Java file:

Java
// find all images without alternate text
// and give them a red border
void process () {

GitHub Copilot will automatically suggest code. Para aceitar a sugestão, pressione Tab.

GitHub Copilot will attempt to match the context and style of your code. You can always edit the suggested code.

Tip

If you receive limited or no suggestions from Copilot, you may have duplication detection enabled. For more information about duplication detection, see "Como gerenciar políticas do Copilot como um assinante individual."

Showing alternative suggestions

Para qualquer entrada fornecida, GitHub Copilot podem oferecer várias sugestões. Você pode selecionar qual sugestão usar ou rejeitar todas as sugestões.

For example, type the following line in a Java file, and press Enter:

Java
private int calculateDaysBetweenDates(Date date1,

GitHub Copilot will show you a suggestion.

Now hover over the suggestion to show the GitHub Copilot control for choosing suggestions. To display next or previous suggestions, click the forward or back arrow button in the control.

You can also use keyboard shortcuts to show alternative suggestions:

-- and rename the columns to match the colors
SELECT [Purple], [Blue], [Green], [Yellow], [Orange], [Red]

GitHub Copilot will automatically suggest code. Para aceitar a sugestão, pressione Tab.

Tip

If you receive limited or no suggestions from Copilot, you may have duplication detection enabled. For more information on duplication detection, see "Como gerenciar políticas do Copilot como um assinante individual."
