Description aristidesfl 2010-01-08 14:36:38 UTC
Currently the javascript code completion only auto popups after pressing period key.

This should be customizable to allow auto popup on any key, or simply activate it at the very first keystroke.

The options of code completions available to java doesn't influence the javascript editor. That is a shame..

That is essential for me and many others and is keeping me away of netbeans :(

Yes, I need that too, just like auto completion in php which have all possible situation autocomplete, so we dont need to press ctrl + space when we want to pass some variable or function without need to type dot (.) at first, is it possible?
Also is there anyway javascript autocompletion menu can be added in netbeans php?

Thx in advance...

Voted for this feature. Should be a global feature for all. And I dont want to wait if I press w for round about 100ms I don't know. On press would be better maybe without delay.

Is this still a problem? Because when I type "a" the code completions comes up, with a delay but it comes up WITHOUT pressing any other key. It's an option: Options -> Editor -> JavaScript -> All Possible Situations. Please check whether this works for you or not.
