Autocomplete wont' work (functions calltip)

Post by Bananaft » Sat Apr 09, 2016 2:19 am

Hello.

I was using CodeLite for some time to programm on AngelScript for Urho3d game engine. Using this nifty hack to get autocompletion on script functions: http://urho3d.prophpbb.com/post1723.htm ... lite#p1723

It worked great until yestarday when it just stopped. The simple word autocompletion is still there, but functions tips wont work anymore.

I bet this got something to do with new version, but it did worked in it for some time. The most bizarre thing though, is that even after uninstalling new version and deleting all settings, installing older one, and setting up from scratch I still can't get it to work.

I will really appreciate any hints on what can cause this, and what else I should try.

I suspect that its related to this commit: https://github.com/eranif/codelite/comm ... 7c3ae0de7d
Which breaks the hack of adding "*.as" as a valid "parsable" source file (this means, that CodeLite will no longer parse files of this kind)

EDIT:
This commit: https://github.com/eranif/codelite/comm ... aee895a9ee should restore the old behavior

Hello,

Thank you very much for caring. I will try it out.

Also, I'm very curious is there any way to see/debug what files was parsed/indexed for autocompletion, and what was found in them? And where codelite stores this indexing information (on Windows)?

Best regards.

All the indexed files are stored under WORKSPACE_PATH/.codelite/<WORKSPACE_NAME>.tags

Its a SQLITE3 files, so you can inspect it with any SQLITE3 database browser
