    is an auto-completion error mentioned.

    I have the same error.
    Why isn't it solved?

     
    • Sorry, nobody cared about that. Are you a bit versed with wxPython, styled text control and Drpython. I'm sorry, but I don't have time for that now.
      The code completion in pycrust (delivered with the wxpython package) will be a good source or template to study/overtake the code completion mechanism. Sorry for not being able to deliver a better answer now.

       
      • I think autocompletion is almost trivial in python by now (and in most dynamic typed languages)
        In a normal-size project, function calls, arguments, etc., hides most useful information needed to autocomplete correctly.
        Without this information, and until pep-3107 (function annotations) is ready, I think it is very hard getting auto-complete working in all the cases (you'll end runing the program to fully introspect it correctly, as pyCrust does, but this is possible for a command line interpreter, not on large projects or functions that writes files/databases, for example).

      Having enough time is an universal problem.
      I'm comparing the different python IDE's.
      ULipad  (see http://code.google.com/p/ulipad/\) has a nice auto-completion feature.
      It's a pity, but understandable, drPython doesn't have this feature.
