QtCreator: How to turn off function tooltip to show autocomplete list?

  • Hi everyone,
    When I type a function name and its open parenthese a tooltip appear and the autocomplete list won't show when I type the first parameter of the function, and I have to press Esc key to turn it off. I searched in options dialog but couldn't find an option about it, so how to turn off this tooltip automatically?

    Never noticed that... which version of creator are you using? Where did you get it from?

  • Thanks for your reply.
    I use QtCreator 2.4.1 ships with QtSdk 1.2.1 (Windows XP 32bit)
    Previous versions of QtSdk has the same problem too.

    The SDK is rather unfortunately rather outdated by now:-( It might be worth trying a newer creator, even though I am actually not aware of any fixes in this area.

    If you want to keep your SDK settings you can just copy the QtCreator/share/qtcreator/Nokia from the SDK into the same place of a stand-alone Qt Creator installation. That works with Qt Creator 2.5.x, 2.6 has a slightly different format and won't parse that anymore.

  • I has just downloaded and tried QtCreator 2.6.0-beta, the problem is fixed.
    Thanks for your help!

  • I apologize for necroing an old thread, but this is still a thing in QT 4.2.1. A lot of the time, when I want autocomplete to show, a tooltip telling me what the method I'm currently calling should include pops up instead, sometimes blocking the line above as well so I can't see what I actually want to type. Is there a way to turn this off?
