<a class="buglink" title="[assist] make the add signatures assist smarter vis-a-vis ambiguous method bindings" href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/355274">355274</a></p></td>
<td><p>The existing quick assist "Add signatures to method binding" has been improved
so that it can be used on a a signature-less method binding even if it fails to resolve its base method(s).
In case the base class has more than one method of the name mentioned in the method binding,
all matching base methods are collected, the best match is inserted into the editor
and other matches are offered as alternatives in linked mode.
</p>
<p>
So, if before invoking the assist you have:
</p>
<p><img alt="Ambiguous base method" src="../images/screenshots/NN21/AmbiguousBaseMethod.png"></p>
<p>you may invoke the assist as a quickfix (e.g., from the error hover), producing this change:</p>
<p><img alt="Add signatures quick assist" src="../images/screenshots/NN21/AddSignaturesAssist.png"></p>
<p>where you may select the suitable base method from a list.</p>
<p><strong>Hint:</strong> If a method binding has an incorrect signature you may first remove signatures (using a quick assist)
and then let this new assist insert correct signatures.</p>
