i have forwarded your posting to the mailing-list of the cedet-suite because IMHO this is the right direction. I do not know if cedet currently offers something like `semanticdb-open-buffer-of-fcn-definition-at-point' or something similar. The point is, if semantic offers something then in ECB is nothing to do, just opening the definition-buffer is sufficient that ECB displays the contents of this buffer... Or do you mean that the contents of the buffer containing the method-definition should be displayed in an extra special-ecb-buffer?

Subject: visting a method from ecb edit-buffer via semanticdb
I understand that you have written the Emacs Code Browser package and I
want to thank and appreciate your hard work. It truly is an excellent
Please accept my apologizies in advance if you are not the right person
for this question. But I posted it on the Emacs Code Browser (ecb)
list and got back no reply. I am using ecb version 2.24 and semantic
version 1.4.2. The ecb tree-buffers are working fine and I have
semanticdb as well and I am able to save the cache files.
Here is my question : In my ecb edit-buffer I am editing a C++ source
that is in a directory full of other .cc files and the header files are
another directory. I have parsed each file and cached it via semanticdb.
The edit-buffer is a regular c++-mode buffer. If I take the cursor to a
specific method that is being called in the edit-buffer, can I visit
method by invoking some key combination or calling some semanticdb
function and loaded it into ecb and view the source ?
Please if you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.
