Tip: how to make the completion tip to re-appear

Post by eranif » Sun Feb 14, 2010 10:37 pm

When typing a function arguments, codelite displays a tooltip with the function arguments.
There are cases where one hit the ESC key and that tip is dismissed, to make it re-appear you could:
  • Go back to the begining of the function, delete the opening brace and retype it
OR

Simply hit Ctrl-Shift-SPACE

My Code completion partially works. It sometimes doesn't work with wxWidgets
Strangely sometimes it works, so I don't know what is wrong. Is there a way to activate it once it deactivated?
Don't mention Ctrl+Space as I'm used to it in IntelliJ Idea ;)

This is a vague statement - which I cant do nothing with.

If you encounter a case where the code completion does not work for you, please describe it in a separate post on this forum and I will have a look at it

No - the code completion is not a plugin (unlike other IDEs) - it is a core functionality of codelite.

The code completion can not be de-activated - like I said earlier, if it does not work for you, you will have to provide a use case so I can have a look at it.

I get the same problem from time to time and I solve it by re declaring the, for example, structure.

In

Code: Select all

1     typedef SomeStruct {
2       .
3       .
4       .
5     } SOME_STRUCT;
6     SOME_STRUCT A_Struct;
I have to rewrite line 6. Then things start to be working agin. It will still be defined the exact same way, but I have to redo it for CL to registrate it correctly as an object with members.

This may have something to do with how CL is registrating internally this kind of objects where it seems to be loosing track of it from time to time.
It has happen several times, but have not found any red thread. However, this is the only problem I have had with CL ever and I find it to be a very solid program. That is. It would have been nice if the list with sugestions taht pops up was in the same order as declared and not sorted as it is pr. today. Sorting it does not make any sense at all (or atleast it should be a configuration choice as also should be for the entire sugestion mechanism as well)

sometimes when you are at the bottom of method, it wont complete - save the file and try again (Ctrl-S followed by Ctrl-SPACE)

Hello Eran,

what can I do about signature of function beeing too long to fit in the completion tip?

(At the bottom of the image the function signature of new_trienode does not fit in the tip)

Try Ctrl-M (to hide the right side pane) and see if it improves anything
