Autocomplete Suggestions don't show up without CTRL+SPACE

Nov 8, 2011 at 4:35 PM

For me, IntelliSense works fine as long as I hit dot (.) i.e. AutoComplete suggestions for members works just fine. However, for top level names (equivalent of variables in C#) autocomplete pop-up doesn't show up by itself (Requires CTRL+SPACE), hence no TAB-Completion.

I guess its because of the absence of the "Show completion list after a character is typed" feature-checkbox in the Text-Editor options for Python.  Has this little feature been tabled until a future release??

That looks to be a C# specific feature - the Intellisense page where that lives for C# doesn't exist for the other languages.  We could certainly look at adding this feature if you opened a feature request, or if you're interested in contributing back this would probably be a pretty easy feature to get started with (it's probably just updating HandleChar in IntellisenseControler to call TriggerCompletionSession when a char is typed + the options plumbing).
