Online Documentation for SQL Manager for PostgreSQL
The Code Completion section of the Editor Options dialog allows you to specify the automatic features, fonts, styles, foreground and background colors, borders and other attributes of the text used by the editor to display objects for 'quick code': tables, UDFs, indices, columns, foreign keys, procedures, functions, views, triggers, scheduled events, SQL keywords, SQL functions.
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). The popup list will appear after a period of time defined by the Delay option.
Using this option you can change the time after which completion variants popup.
This option allows you to set the number of characters to be typed before code completion is activated.
If this option is checked, the Delphi-like hint for key words is enabled.
Group by type
If enabled, the items in the code completion list are sorted by type, otherwise they are sorted by name.
Sort column names
Enable this option to force sorting for column names.
Show information hints
This option enables/disables information hints for variants offered by code completion feature.
Auto launch keyboard templates
Allows you to use keyboard templates for faster typing frequently used expressions (see Keyboard Templates).
Accept by Space key too
Enables selecting the completion item with Space key.
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.
