Say you want to type "sys.path.append('yada yada yada')", using say Komodo or IDLE. When you get to "sys.path.ap" and type a "(", it will complete the word "append".
Is there a setting somewhere in Eclipse where I can do that in Pydev too or isn't that a feature? Currently if I type "sys.path.ap(", it ends up just as I typed it "sys.path.ap(" instead of completing the word "append".
Now, in Preferences>Pydev>Editor>Code Completion I did notice there was a few items you can select. I have "Use code completion" and "Autocomplete on '.'?" selected. If I select the "Autocomplete on '('?" and click Apply and OK and reopen the preferences, it isn't selected. If I select all 5 boxes then it will save but it still doesn't work as I would expect.
Any ideas? I know I am seriously nitpicking, but I am spoiled by other editors and I really like Eclipse with so far after giving it a second shot with PyDev.
Thanks in advance.
The option to apply the current completion on '(' is not implemented... (you really have to press enter to apply it). Please enter a feature request for that.
How about completing on a period ".". Is that not implemented also? If it is, I can't get it to complete on that either. Only the Enter key completes.
Note: this bug has just been fixed. Details at: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2716634&group_id=85796&atid=577329
Way awesome. Thanks a lot. I am going to jump on that link right now.
