[MonoDevelop] Visual Studio style code completion
Thu, 05 Aug 2004 20:24:58 -0500
I know how to implement this feature, and I fully intend on doing so,
but I wanted to ask a question first.
In order to give the user a choice between vs.net autocompletion and
sharpdevelop completion, I thought it would make sense to have the user
make the choice here:
Edit -> Preferences -> Text Editor -> General
Fork 'General Options' to 'General Options' and 'Code completion'
General Options would still contain cold folding and double buffering
Code Completion would have the following options:
Use Sharpdevelop style code completion
Use Visual Studio.net style code completion
Do not use code completion
I would no longer save the setting in "EnableCodeCompletion." Instead,
I would use "CodeCompletionStyle" and possible values would be
Suggestions? Anything I'm missing? I'm eager to add these options to
Monodevelop, but wanted to get other's opinions before I write these
patches. This is my first contribution to any open source project, so I
hope you understand my need for approval.
