Code completion HELP!
« on: August 01, 2017, 10:35:50 pm »
Hi,
   I'm new to using Code::Blocks.  I'm just starting to develop/learn C and C++.   I'm having problems with the code completion feature in the editor.   It seems to work fine some times, but then doesn't seem to be working at all.  For example, I start typing printf() and the code completion pop up appears with the printf() function in the list of choices.  Then I create a new project the same day, I'm doing C exercises from a text, and type in the beginning of printf() again and nothing pops up or a list pops up but doesn't include the printf() choice.   In all cases I have coded the #include<stdio.h> at the top of the file.   Does anyone know what's going on? How can I make the code completion work all the time?  This is very frustrating as a new Code::Blocks user.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Regards.
Richard.

I've discovered that if I disable a bunch of unneeded plugin's  my problem stops.   But I don't know how to turn them off permanently.  The are turned on again when I quit and restart C::B.   
Can some one tell me how to turn them off permanently?  or do I have to uninstall them? 
Thanks.
HRS.

We have no Idea what Operating System OS you are using, please state the OS name and version?

We have no Idea what Code::Blocks version you are using, please state CB version?

Sorry about that.  I haven't posted a question in forum for a LONG time.   Silly me ;D ::)

I'm using Windows 7, and C:B version 16.01 with the GNU gcc 32 bit compiler installed.

I also have a new observation.  The problem returns when I close a project and then create a new one without restarting C::B.  The disabled plugins do seem to be staying disabled when I restart.   So it looks like I may be incorrect in assuming it is directly connected to running to many plugins.

It does return when I close a project and start a new one though. It does not return if I reopen the an earlier project that didn't have the problem.  So it looks to be project related.

Thanks for responding.  I'm still learning the ropes here.

Can someone else try to help the OP with the Code completion issue.
I do NOT use that plugin and can NOT help him figure out if it is a normal slow CC issue, an CC configuration, or other type of a problem.
