Not sure what it is technically called so couldn't search for it. I don't seem to get the dropdown box when I use variables or functions from external libraries (eg SDL) as shown in this screenshot:

Is there a way to make it appear? Thanks.

Hello,

Which C::B revision?

Did you try to check the boxes under Settings-->Editor-->Code-completion and symbols browser-->Parser

(-->Follow LOCAL includes)
-->Follow GLOBAL includes
-->Parse preprocessor directives

Best wishes,
Michael

Nightly build May 9th 2006

Using the parser allows auto completion of the preprocesser types but none of the variables types such as SDL_Surface. I get the same problem when using the STL as well. A function box doesn't appear when I use . or -> .
