Hello,
I'm attempting to use code completion on a property of a global namespace. I've defined & JSDoc'ed the global in another js file (which is included in the project, and I get that variable in code completion). When I try to use this property, I get no options for code completion. Is this possible to do?

File 1
var foo = {};


File 2
foo.prop = function(){return "Hello World";};


When I try to use code completion in File 2 to prompt for foo.prop, I see no proposals.

At the moment, no, not unless both files are open in editors. Proper
(and performant) support for Globals is something we want to visit in
the next maintenance release.
