I’ve been for a long time on Npp 6.3.2 and got used to PHP functions autocomplete. Yesterday I’ve updated to 7 and noticed, that autocomplete does not work as it did earlier.
I type “file” or “file_get”, press ctrl+space and hints popup shows up.
I type “file”, press ctrl+space and hints popup shows up.
I type “file_get”, press ctrl+space and no hints.
I tried many variations and figured out, that problem is in “_” symbol.
How to fix this?
Hi, Alex s,
Very easy to get it :-))
Open, in N++, the file
At beginning of this file, just under the
<AutoComplete>tag, insert the line, below :
<Environment ignoreCase="no" startFunc="(" stopFunc=")" paramSeparator="," additionalWordChar = "_" />
Save the changes, done in php.xml, and close this file
Close, then, re-start Notepad++
Open a PHP file or a new tab and define the language PHP, for this new tab
Type, for instance, the word,
file_at beginning of a line
Hit the CTRL + Spacebar shortcut
=> A pop-up list should appear, located on the word
file_exists, followed by the three functions, below :
File_get_contents File_put_contents File_register_wrapper .....
Et voilà !
