Description avantman42 2006-07-04 09:02:54 UTC
I would like to request an auto-complete function in the Basic IDE, similar to
that found in Delphi, VBA, etc. In these environments, the user types something, eg


and either waits, or presses a key combination like CTRL-SPACE, and is presented
with a list of possible options. Microsoft calls this Intellisense, and there
are several screenshots of it being used here:

I think the ability to see parameters, properties/methods, etc as you are typing
a macro will make it easier to write macros, especially for power users, as
opposed to developers.

JSC -> AB: what's your opinion, i would say not possible in the near future
Comment 2 ab 2006-07-18 09:37:40 UTC
ab->jsc: I agree. The problem here is that due to the weak (UNO related) 
typing in Basic in many situations type information is missing. -> OOo Later

do you have any plans for this issue?
Thanks a lot for your attention.

@ kpalagin: I think a better question is, to ask how realistic it is that this
can be implemented. If you look at the cause (see comment ab Jul 18 2006) IMO
it's a pretty lot of work, if doable at all.
Don't get me wrong: I would be happy if it were implemented :-)
Comment 7 ab 2008-02-04 08:43:04 UTC
ab->kpalagin: Currently there are no plans. The main problem is still the same
(missing static type information in many situation). I don't see that the we would
get a result that justifies the effort.
