How do you turn off the popups in the XSLT editor? [message #493079] Thu, 22 October 2009 21:52 Go to next message

Hi all,

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I'm using the XSLT editor
provided by the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (org.eclipse.wst.xsl.feature)

Unfortunately I'm having lots of problems fighting with the popup suggestion
box - it seems that almost every keypress I type results in an instant popup
window suggesting XSLT tags I can insert, even when I'm in the middle of
typing normal text. It's infuriating because when the box is on the screen I
can't use the arrow keys properly because they scroll through the choices in
the box instead of moving around between lines of code.

I've been all through the options many times but I can't find where you
disable this popup feature!

Can someone please let me know how to stop these annoying popups from getting
in my way? Or is there some other Eclipse plugin that just provides XML
syntax highlighting then gets out of my way? (I'd miss the validation but I'd
save so much time by not getting random tags inserted in my code thanks to the
popup deciding to appear just before I press Enter...)

Many thanks,
Adam.

The only time you should get these popups is if you use any of the following:

< : "

You can control some of this through the XML Editor preferences which the XSLT editor inherits. Go to Windows->Preferences->XML->XML Files->Editor. You can turn off the Automatically make suggestions, or change the options that show the suggestions.

You can still bring up the suggestions by hitting CTRL+Space or CMD+Space when necessary.

Hope this helps.

I was getting them on } as well at the time (which was very irritating as I
was typing in LaTeX code in the XSL), but I can't seem to reproduce that now.

Ah excellent, didn't even think to look in the XML settings. I also found an
option in there to disable automatically closing the comment tags which has
irritated me for a long time so that's great!

Unfortunately unticking "automatically make suggestions" doesn't stop the box
from popping up. It only seems to do it when I type ':' now (so it's
improved) but if you've got any suggestions to stop it even if I type a colon
that'd be great!

That'd be ideal.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Cheers,
Adam.

If you can, please open a bug, with exact steps to reproduce, and I'll see if I can replicate the issue. You may get the { } within attributes. Which if you are, then I think I know where the issue might be.
