auto-complete never pops up
« on: August 04, 2006, 01:59:43 am »
Hi,
I have a nightly build of codeblocks from a few days ago. I also tried the rc2 version, and none of them seem to pop up an autocomplete dialog like the screenshot on the homepage.

I know the feature isn't complete, but I'm just wondering whether a dialog should be popping up when I type :: or . or ->, etc, because nothing ever happens. I have checked the options and I have code completion turned on.

Can anyone comment on whether this feature does not work at all, or am I just doing something wrong? I think I must have an option set wrong because the picture on the homepage shows an autocomplete box popping up, but it never works for me.

Thanks

Although it not complete, my auto-complete works normally.

For example: when there are four variables named TextCtrl1~4. I only need to press "Text" then the auto-complete window pop up.

I work with WinXP, Version 1.0 revision 2811 ()   gcc 3.4.5 Windows/unicode

it depends on what you are doing.

For example when your code is in a namespace --> no codecompletion at all.

Well, to test it I just created a string variable and tried to see if I could get a list of methods associated with a string, but nothing came up. Then I tried getting a list of the methods which are part of wxwidgets. Then i created my own class and tried to see if I could get a list of those methods.
None which gave me any result.

C++ std stuff : indeed no code completion, not sure for wx stuf though.
Your own class strange, 'could'/'should' (sometimes) work.  ;-)
