Improve auto-suggest/intellisense: Press space or non-alphanumeric keys for selecting keywords automatically
I suggest that aside from pressing ENTER key for selecting keyword in intellisense/autosuggest list. I suggest that pressing SPACE or non-alphanumeric key will automatically selects the selected suggested word and appended by SPACE or non-alphanumeric characters. This is characteristics is the same as intellisense of Visual Basic or Visual Studio. This features makes coding or typing even more faster.
On existing features:
- Type a keyword (if the predicted keyword found on the suggestion the user press enter).
- Enter space.
On proposed features:
- Type a keyword (if the predicted keyword found on the suggestion the user press space and it selects the suggested keyword and the space or non-alphanumeric characters is already appended).
On the following comparison, the suggested features saves 2 keystrokes. The proposed featured must be enabled by default and can be disabled by the user.
I hope that you may consider this suggested features.
From my point of view, if this should be implemented, it should be disabled by default.
The reason why explained on a viusal basic example.
CreateObject is a keyword but if I want to define a Function like
Private Function Create () As Boolean
it would repalce it to
Private Function CreateObject
The same applies to comments like
'create a hash to compare results
or defining strings like
"Create a hash"
@Leonard Marvilla, your proposal saves one keystroke whereas it might generate more keystrokes
to revert it if it wasn’t supposed to use it.
But as said, this is my opinion.
