Need feature auto-completion after one character in Qt Creator



  • It would be nice to be able to change the Qt Creator start work after completion of one character. As done in VIsual Studio with C#

    No, that is not nice: There are so many symbols to retrieve, process and display in any decently sized project that the completion is getting too slow to be useful:-)

    You can always hit Ctrl-Space to manually request a completion if you need it. You can also do Camel-Case completions (QAIM for QAbstractItemModel) by the way, a nice feature many people seem to miss.

    Woah, that should be stated in CAPITAL letters when QtCreator starts! Nice! And indeed, I did not know about it. :)



  • Indeed, very nice feature :-) Also I did not know about it. Thanks.

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I understand that just increases the load on your PC. But if I work on small projects, and I have a powerful pc I should be able to include completion after the first character. If I start to work on large projects, I just turn it off and no problems. Let the default behavior will be like now, but with the possibility of inclusion.

    We do ship a manual with Qt Creator, you know? It does state all the cool stuff creator does;-)



  • At the moment it starts after 3 characters. Maybe a very well hidden config option would be useful for those cases where someone really wants to bork ones machine? :-)



  • 2016 now and almost all IDE and editors have 1 symbol auto-complete option, and Qt Creator still haven't?
