Code Completion Issues

    Code Completion has become almost completely useless:

    • Auto Complete Braces works for [ ] and ( ) (US English: "square brackets" and "parenthesis") BUT If you type the closing bracket or parenthesis, it adds a new symbol instead of overwriting the existing. E.g. myList.size())
    • Auto Complete Braces doesn't work for the one thing we call a "brace": { }
    • The Code Completion window pops up before I type anything to give it context: E.g. "Contact c = " opens the entire Code Completion window. No one is going to use the entire, unfiltered window of all possible classes, properties and methods. It should not open until you start typing something. 
    • Worst Thing: Neither Tab nor Ctrl + Space inserts the Intellisense item. The IDE says both Ctrl + Space and Alt + Right Arrow should execute "Edit.CompleteWord" but it does not. 
    • Double Clicking the suggestion in Intellisense takes focus away from the window, meaning I have an extra click before I can start coding again. 

    Gotta get that tightened up. It's killing my flow. I've gotten so dependant on the folders you let me create, it would be terrible if I had to switch to a different solution :(

      Hi Kevin,

      Thank you for your bug report.

      • The Code Completion issue related to the braces is known issue for us and currently our developers are working on the improving this functionality. As a workaround for a time you can disable the 'Auto-complete braces' option using the following way: Main Menu -> Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> Code Assistance -> Apex. 
      • As for the appearing of the entire Code Completion window, this is expected. You can filter the Code Completion list using the filters at the bottom of it. Anyway, we will discuss your feedback about this.
      • The next bug you have been faced is the inserting option using the Code Completion list. I kindly ask you to do the following steps for it: when the list appears, please select the necessary item (using keyboard or cursor) and click Tab. Does this insert the selected item? 
      • This issue is known to us. Our developers will fix it in the nearest version of TWS.

      If you have more question, please write us. We will glad to hear your feedback.

      This helps us make The Welkin Suite better.

      Best Regards,
