Code completion: Too little information shown?
« on: May 06, 2007, 10:25:58 pm »
Hi!

I saw in some CodeBlocks screenshots that the Code-Completion can show all useful information about lets say a class member function at the same time inside the editor: Return Type, parameter Types, the class the function belongs to etc... Now when I try it myself (using Ctrl-Space), only the thing that is displayed in the pop-up box is the function NAME, the rest is only shown in the symbol browser or in the "call hints". Has this changed since the screen shots were made or am I doing something wrong? It would be good to see all information about a function when using the code completion....

:)

Are the screenshots RC2? Because that's really old.

As far as I know code completion isn't finished yet, it seems to work to a point, but it still has a long way to go.

I asked about this some time ago in the irc channel and the screenshot you mention uses indeed another version of the code completion. The current version is imho quite crippled. I hope that someone steps up and takes this to the level from version RC2.

I wonder how many devs actually are working on this IDE. And if there is some kind of roadmap which gives an idea of what we, users, can expect in what timeframe.

Cheers,
San

Well, in terms of functionality you really don't want to go back :). Appearances is a different thing.
Be patient!
