couple of code completion suggestions

description

When doing:

from Foo import foo2

(assuming for eg foo2 is a class) and then going on to do:

a = foo2()

it would be nice if intellisense could offer suggestions as I am typing out foo2
In the same vein, when doing:

varname = 1

and then doing:

a = varname + etc

it would again be nice if intellisense could offer suggestions as I am typing out varname

It seems that you want IntelliSense to trigger as soon as you start typing? You can press Ctrl+Space or Ctrl+J at any time to see what completions are available, but we don't pop them up automatically because it is too intrusive for most people.

There is, however, an extension on the Visual Studio Gallery that will enable this behaviour for Python projects. It was written by someone who isn't part of our team, but it seems to have satisfied other people who like completions to trigger on every keystroke.

Thanks for that. Just what I wanted!
