Description Vladimir Riha 2014-07-13 12:30:07 UTC
Please try:

var a = "";

and invoke cc inside the double quotes, I think it shouldn't offer anything, code completion should not work there but it does and offer general code completion items.

It works good as in other IDEs too sometimes there is a misbehaviour but it is ok. I think it should be optional. So an option to do it or not would be better, instead of removing. Some others wants it and then? Add it back?

Option needs here in my opinion.
