There are bugs regarding this topic. General one and a JDT specific one. In JDT you can actually enable this by entering all characters as auto activation triggers. Not sure CDT offers that too.
This is a workaround, but the result is suboptimal because the cursor isn't placed in the proper location after a completion for continuous completion in some cases, and the fact that content-assist is synchronous in JDT make the IDE quite laggy.

Overall, auto-content assist depends on having content assist asynchronous, or at least not blocking the UI Thread, as it's doing currently for most editors.
