Code completion - containers
« on: February 19, 2018, 10:35:04 pm »
Hello!

I have a little problem: when I am creating a variable - lets say myVariable the code completion works very fine. When I am typing "myV" - the IDE shows "myVariable" immediately.

But when I am creating a container like:

Code: [Select]
std::array<int, 3> myArray{1,2,3};

and I am typing "myA" nothing happens... and so when I am typing "myArray." no available functions were shown. :-(

Can someone help me to solve this problem?

Thx! :-)

Either the template or the curly brackets are confusing the parser...

The current code completion plugin is not great with template code....

If you like experimenting you can try the Clang code completion:
https://github.com/yvesdm3000/ClangLib/tree/staging

But you have to compile codeblocks by yourself to be able to install this plugin.

If you want to try it i can write a instruction how to do it....

Hey!

This would be great! :-) I have already installed Clang also for real-time code checking but its not working so far.

Thx! :-)
