Code completion option

- Code Completion: option to autopopup on typing

Could you please clarify where I can find such an option...? I did not notice
any difference for this options page.

Regards,
Maxim.

Hello Maxim,

You should enlarge the options dialog to see this option at the bottom
there. We currently have a bug with correctly determining the default size
of the options dialog.

OK, I see it now. Thanks =)

However, I see two main issues with it:

1. I'd rather expect to see a small tooltip above the currently typed text
as in Visual Assist. The reason is simple: if I really need to choose something
from a list, I can always invoke the normal code completion -- hitting Ctrl+Space
is not a big deal. What I want from Resharper is to display a guess about
the word which is currently typed so I can confirm it by pressing Enter.
Certainly, the guess should depend on a context. Some sort of statistical
prognosis would also be desirable. From my point of view, displaying the
whole list of standard completion is too heavy and adds too much visual noise.

2. What kind of completion are you currently using for autopopup? I can't
see local variables in it. Actually it makes this feature quite useless =(

Regards,
Maxim.

Hello Maxim,

It uses the basic completion. If you don't see local variables, it's a
bug which must be reported to the tracker.

Done.
