Autocomplete code from IDE

I activated the autocomplete option from the IDE preferences.
Autocomplete using ctrl + space is not working. How does code autocomplete work?
I performed tests with Java and P5.js and in both cases it did not work.

Thank you.

Welcome to the forum,

Try quitting then relaunching processing? To see if the preference change takes effect.

can confirm it works. You have to have some letters typed, then press ctrl + space.

I tested java flavor and I also confirms it works using the PDE (v3.5.4 p5js mode v1.2.2 @ Win10) but not for p5.js mode. This option doesn’t seem to be supported in the online editor either.

You can head to P5.js Github issues and create a request to support this feature. It will be helpful if you cross-reference yours posts.



Autocomplete is a Java mode only feature of PDE, as far as I know. Even if it was added to the p5.js online editor it wouldn’t (automatically) also work in the PDE mode for p5.js, which is a Java-based editor.
