3.8.16 Use Content Assist (Autocomplete)

Content assist (autocomplete) can be triggered explicitly if you press Ctrl+Space in any code context.

Some of the contexts when content assist is triggered automatically as you type are:

  • when you type a dot (.) for accessing a struct member (field, method etc) as in bfm.do_write()

  • when you type a colon (:) in a field declaration as in smp : signal map

  • when you type a compare (==) in an expression as in if (mode ==...)

Proposals are presented in a list for you to chose from. Moving through proposals you can quickly see the related documentation.

Press Enter or click to select a proposal or Esc to cancel the assist.
