    Hi, I am just starting out using BOA and learning Python and have just completed the tutorial in the help to create the Notebook application.

    I have looked though the settings to see if I am able to set preferences whereby the methods of an object are displayed in a drop down list similar to that seen in Visual Basic etc.

    So typing self.textEditor. would show a list after the . so I can see what is available.

    When I try to search for any of the objects I have used thus far no help gets displayed so i dont know what is or is not available?

    thnx

      try using either CTRL+SPACE or CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE - I find that one gives me available member functions, and the other gives me tips for function parameters (at least when the function is commented with the appropriately formatted docstring)

      Excellent, thanks CTRL+SPACE does the trick!
