Top 15 NetBeans Keyboard Shortcuts for Java Programmers

In Java development there are three big IDEs, IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse and NetBeans. In the past, I have shared Eclipse keyboard shortcuts and IntelliJ IDEA courses and today, I am going to share keyboard shortcuts for NetBeans, one of the first Java IDE I used in my career. I started doing Java development when JCreator was considered great because it can help with function names on objects but when NetBeans comes with features like built-in Tomcat and built-in profiler, it changed the game and I extensively used NetBeans for both web and mobile application development with J2ME. Since then a lot of water have flown in to Java world, InelliJIDEA become the defacto standard IDE for Java development with Eclipse as close second but unlike what many expected, NetBeans didn't die.

How to show and hide a div using jQuery? show(), hide(), and toggle() function Example

So, you have a div element and you want to show or hide them may be on a click or during page load, how do you do that in jQuery? Well, jQuery provides convenient show() and hide() methods which can show or hide an element, including div. All you need to do is, write a jQuery selector to find the div you want to show or hide and then call jQuery function show() or hide() depending upon your requirement. You can also use the toggle() function to switch between showing and hiding. This method will make element visible if its hidden and vice-versa. To select the div you can use either element, id or class selector but I recommend to use the ID selector because it will work even if you have multiple div in your page.
