Scripting in V7.4

Being using the V7.4 beta version.

I’m going to go against the grain and -1 this request. This type of behavior works in Eclipse or Visual Studio because the popup doesn’t get in your way and is very concise in displaying information. Having something automatically popup and cover the rest of your script gets annoying really quick especially when you already know what you’re trying to do.

-1 from me. I prefer the ctrl-space so it pops up when I want it.

Too many times I have waited for the auto popup only to have to delete the . any then type it again because something happened to cause the popup to not. Or conversely, I’ve paused well typing (I’m not fast in the first place) and the popup shows up when I don’t want it and I can’t get rid of it or it auto selects the wrong thing and then I have to delete it all and start again.
