switch between different autocompleters

Postby basweber » Sat Feb 05, 2011 4:57 pm


I would find it usefull if I was able to switch between the different types of autcompletition just by hitting a short key.
More precisely, the most things I autocomplete are from the current file but sometimes I also want words from other files or the whole python autocompleter.

To implement this, I need to know how I can define a new keybinding (say CTRL-ALT-Space) and associate it with an method in the class EditraStc

And how to set the active autocompleter (simplecomp or pycomp).

I am not sure I see the value in doing this. Just setup your autocompletion settings to use the Extended AutoComp and it will do word matching in addition to the context sensitive autocompletion from the python completer.

The current architecture would require a bit of rework to support switching completers easily and I am not sure I want to introduce any possible instabilities from such a change right now.
