Code Completion

Automatic features


CheckBox Code completion

If this option is checked, then on typing the first word characters in the SQL text editor you will be offered some variants for the word completion in a popup list (an analogue of the Code Insight feature in Delphi IDE).



This option allows you to set the number of characters to be typed before code completion is activated.



Using this option you can change the time after which completion variants popup.

This option enables/disables information hints.


CheckBox Accept by Space key too

Editor Options - Code Completion


Completion list object

The list contains all objects for which you can set quick code parameters. For your convenience the preview area (located to the right of the Completion list object list) illustrates the changes being made to each of the objects.

If you press the Disable element button, the standard settings will be applied to this object; the button text will change to Enable element. If you press this button, you will be able to change font and color attributes for this object.

Controls for changing the properties of the item selected in the Completion list object list are located on the right.
