Re: [ide-dev] Auto content assist

For at least some editors (java) this can be controlled through preferences...Preferences->Java->Editor->content assist has a value called 'Auto-activation triggers for java'. it's defaults to '.' but if you change it to 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ.' then it'll always invoke content assist (much closer to the IJ feel).

Then I switched back to Eclipse to do some CDT work and typed the beginning of an identifier and expected content assist to just pop up. I forgot that I had to ask the editor to pop it up for me. Auto content assist is one of those features that once you start using it just becomes natural.
It's also a reason why some people do prefer IJ for Java development. Auto content-assist is a must-have nowadays.
