Description ChrisLE 2016-02-23 12:40:20 UTC
In Javascript and I think in Java and PHP so I think in all native languages which are included in netbeans, there is a pain in the ass bug when I have this code:

testCode.test().then(function(foo) {

when I copy and paste the foo argument to the log method, the code completion comes up, what it shouldn't. This is a JS example, but the same happens for java too. The same happens when I change "test" to 'test' with selecting the word and hit ', after this the code completion comes up, which is weird.

This happens, when I enable the option inside Code Completion:
Enable Auto Popup Completion Window for:

All possible Situations.

When I disable this option, everything is fine, but this is not an option. Of course, I want it in ALL possible situations, because I don't want to hit ctrl + space or a dot. So for me this seems a bug inside the code completion functionality.
It doesn't make sense to me, that the code completion comes up, after changing " to ' or to copy/paste stuff, because after this, I want to navigate with the arrow keys to go to the next line and this is not possible, because I navigate inside the code completion window. I have to hit "esc" to cancel this. And this is a pain in the ass.

WebStorm or Idea does it the right way, no code completion on copy/paste but on typing values. I don't have to hit ctrl + space or smth like that.

Cannot reproduce in Java source. Reassigning to Javascript for evaluation.

I only can reproduce it in JS, I will have a look at PHP and Java again.

It happens, as I said when I paste a value to console.log(foo); than the code completion comes up and shows foo. This is not happening in Java for System.err.println, for example. And the other thing with the " and ' still brings the code completion. It doesn't matter whether I add ' or " to a foo for example or change from " to ' and vice versa.

Those behaviours only happens with the code completion option: "All possible Situations". But I need this option enabled, because when I type "a" the code completion should comes up, I don't want to hit ctrl + space.
