#1067 Ctrl+Space not enable


Good morning,

I'm using:
- squirrel sql client 3.40
- with ibm db2 driver.
- in Windows 7 Professional

Unfortunately the functionality CTRL + SPACE does not work.

Instead using WinXP client with 3.2.2 everything works.

Why is that?
There are parameters to be included?

    Please have a look at menu Plugins --> Summary and see if the code completion Plugin is loaded.
    If it is try a new install.
    This is not a general problem with Version 3.4. I'm pretty sure it must depend on some condition of your environment.

    I have the same problem when using Squirrel 3.4.0 with two different Oracle DBs. Squirrel is running on WinXP 32-bit and Win7 x64 respectively. Ctrl-Space seems to have no effect at all.

    I also use Squirrel 3.4.0 with a MS SQL Server database on Win7 x64. Here Ctrl-Space works like a charm.

    It looks like it could be an issue for Windows to send the Ctrl+Space key sequence to SQuirreL.

    I'm using Windows 7 with SQuirreL 3.6, which Ctrl-Space works most of the time. However, sometimes after I used RDP / Citrix to connect (which reset the Windows theme to Classic), SQuirreL will no longer accept Ctrl+Space for code completion. However, code completion actually works if I right-click and choose code complete from the pop-up menu. The only way for me to get Ctrl+Space working again is by re-booting, which is a pain.

    To get around this, is there a way to trigger code completion other than Ctrl+Space? Is is possible to configure the plug-in to use something like F12 instead of Ctrl+Space?
