|Issue 142:||API-file based autocomplete and calltips|
|1 person starred this issue and may be notified of changes.||Back to list|
Since Notepad++ 5.x they got Calltips, basically little popup messages, telling you what to enter (e.g. int <number> ). This is really helpful and i would like to have this for PN too. Because even if you don't know a certain function, enter a few letters and auto-complete it, enter an opening bracket and calltip shows up. If the function has more than one parameter / argument, the active is highlighted and you can keep track of what you enter. Last but not least, a calltip shows a desciption or summary of the function (see attached image). M$ Visual Studio's IntelliSense has uber calltps: you can browse through to all overloaded functions using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Each has it's own parameter list and maybe a slighly different summary.

Garfield-991 also suggested that SciTE supports this (with a custom options file and dwnloaded API). Firstly go to: http://www.scintilla.org/SciTEExtras.html and download: 1. php.api for PHP 4.3.3 2. PHP properties 3. PHP functions Then open SciTE, menu Options > Open User Options File and paste in the code from: http://www.spodesabode.com/discussion/70/scite-for-php-development/ It would be greate if PN would support this.

I've started work on this now, I had autocomplete working from the Notepad++ XML PHP api file earlier tonight. I need to do some generalisation of that code now, but it'll be there for the next release!
