Annoying problem with Code:Blocks
« on: September 20, 2012, 07:51:42 pm »
Not sure if this is the right forum, but anyways...
I am using Code::Blocks svn 8395 on Fedora 17 i686 ( I installed codeblocks from jenslody's yum repo).
And when I start typing fprintf( I get a little popup showing the list of arguments to fprintf, which is nice, but it hangs over the cursor, which isn't nice.
I have a screenshot of the problem attached. Note where the tooltip is in relationship to the cursor position.

Yes, I agree - the placement of the popup is intensely irritating!

Look the screen shot below, the tip windows shows correctly. (I'm testing under winXP, the latest nightly build)

Can you tell us what is the exact step to reproduce this bug?
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

I just tested it, and (at least on linux, will test win later) you get this effect if you are in the last line of the editor, the same happens, if the "Parser is still parsing" tip occurs while typing.
The "normal" autocompletion tip is always below the line with the cursor and some parts will be cut, if it is in the last line. Also not the best way to show it, but better than to hide the caret.

OK, bug happens here too.

You need to be on the last line displayed too have it.
