how do i get rs to autocomplete a control name?

Hey All,

I just installed rs 4.5b but this was happening with rs 4.1 as well.

I'd like to get it so that if i type in 3-4 characters and then pause for say 0.1 seconds, rs will give me an autocomplete for any controls/functions etc that match.

For example, i usually name my text box controls starting with txtbx, so i typed in txtbx and then paused for bit, rs should give me a list of all the text box controls on the page. Can someone tell me what settings i change to enable this? Currently rs options intellisense i have this:

general: resharper
completion behavior: Everything is checked other then case sensitive prefix matching

thanks for any help

Check your resharper options under Environment -> IntelliSense -> Completion
Behavior.

Ensure that the Automatically show completion list in ____ milliseconds
after: is set to 0.
Check: Include keywords in completion list
Check: Only those that are at least _____ characters long: is set to 3
Check: Narrow down list on typing

thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, it did not help. All of those options were already set with the exception of the first option - i had it set to 100 milliseconds. I'm impatient, but i can wait that long
i tried changing it to 0 anyhow but still no effect.

Just so we're clear on what i am talking about....

Dim state As String

stat

Nothing appears after i type in stat. I have to type state. with a perioud and then i get a completlition list.

The only way i can get stat completed is by hitting alt - right+arrow, and then i get a completition list.

thanks

Humm, it may have something to do with the fact that you are in VB.NET and I
am using C#. For me, doing

string state;
st -> selected item in Intellesense is state

so I do not know. If I get a chance today, I will try in VB.NET.

Are you working in VS2005 or VS2008?

I dont think it has anything to do with vb vs c# - i think i've worked on vb projects before where it has worked. I think there's just something odd either with this project or with resharper itself.

But if you want to take the time to test it on a vb project, i'd appreciate it.
thanks!

It appears to be an issue in R# with VB.NET. In my test application I
created a new class (VB) and attempted the same test. Auto-completion did
not turn on. However Ctrl-Space would find the code correctly. The only
auto-completion I got at anytime in VB.NET was for the base keywords.

bummer, that stinks.
I wonder if this is a bug, or if it's the way it's supposed to work with vb.net

Anyhow, thanks for trying that out. I'll send support an email and see what they say.

Hello,

Ah, you're doing Basic. Yes, R# does not fully replace the Basic intellisense,
so the autopopup completion feature is left for Visual Studio in this case.
VS options could probably help.
