In case you would love to see this usability enhancement, go over to and vote for this
bug report:
The >-character is an autocompletion trigger. When I backspace to it,
autocompletion should immediately be re-triggered.


class F {

function bar() {


$f = new F();
// Now look:

$f->dr //oh wrong
$f-> // backspace-backspace
// uh, where is my autocompletion list? It isn't there
In general, the best user experience would be that the system catch on
autocompletion when possible. So,

$f->bax // oh wrong
$f->ba // backspace-backspace

// now I want to see the autocompletion proposals again


I keep pressing CTRL+SPACE over and over again. This enhancement would
tremendously improve usability!
