Hello, I believe that this should be a common problem but I couldn't find the solution. Let's suppose you have a class and than you go to add some code in it. While you are typing you get syntax error, so while you are typing you can't use auto complete (example a.jpg) . You can however still use auto complete in other lines (example b.jpg) .

This is a serious problem for me , because it forces me to do more moves (e.g. write the object in other line to have the auto complete , copy paste it in the right one and then delete it from the first). I am not sure if the fix has to do with auto complete (to work even if there are syntax errors while typing) , or with syntax errors check (not to check them while typing in order to have the auto complete option.

Please anyone who knows a solution to it, share it . Thank you in advance

The problem is a bit more complicated than I first described, so let me give you an example since I believe it is important. I hope anybody with this example understands what is happening and has a solution.

class Bicycle
  private $gear; 
  public function getGear()
    return $this->gear; 
  public function setGear($gear)
    $this->gear = $gear; 

class Bicycle_Operation
   * @return Bicycle
  public function getBicycle()
    $bicycle = new Bicycle();
    return $bicycle; 

class Job
   * @var Bicycle
  private $bicycle; 
  public function doSomething()
    $op = new Bicycle_Operation(); 
    $bicycle = $op->getBicycle(); 
    $this->bicycle = $op->getBicycle(); 
    	now if I type: $bicyle-> CTRL+Space I can see the methods with content assistance
    	{So Eclipse PDT knows here that $bicycle is a Bicycle and treat it the right way}  
    	(Template proposals) (auto complete) the same happens with $this->bicycle-> 
    	But if I have an if statement, lets say I type: if($bicycle-> CTRL+Space 
    	I can't see contnet assistance and it has syntax error (No Template Proposals) 
    	With the same example if I type: if($this->bicycle-> CTRL+Space 
    	I can see and use content assistance - auto complete
