Code completion does not work properly
« on: February 07, 2018, 07:27:59 pm »
Hi,
I have searched some topis here related to the subject but I haven't found the answer. What I would like to reach is that the IDE suggests me at the moment showed in the code below i.a.: abc.substr + list of possible arguments + short description of what substr do. Could you tell me how may I reach that?

Code: [Select]
#include <iostream>
#include <string>

int main()
{
    std::string abc = "hello world";
    abc.sub

This should work by default.
What operating system are you using? What codeblocks version? From where?

If you are on linux you probably have to install the codeblocks contribution plugins ( i think the packet is cbcontrib-plugins or something like that)

The code completion plugin is a core plugin. It is always installed.

Excuse me, but that one is at least 4 years old. Try updating: http://codeblocks.org/downloads/26
