What's triggered completion in Qt Creator?

  • In Completion settings page, there are 3 options for "Activate completion": Manual, When Triggered and Automatic.

    What's the meaning of "When Triggered", and how it differs from Manual?

    Tried to look around in the code, the TextEditor::TriggeredCompletion enum value is not referenced anywhere...

    This is how completion is triggered:

    Manual: Only is triggered by the key combo.
    When Triggered: Key combo plus it is triggered when it makes sense (e.g. when typing '.')
    Always: All of the above plus when the editor is idle and thinks it has useful completion information.

  • Thanks!

    Is it documented anywhere?
