Well, this is kind of difficult to resolve. We can either use the normal expression input control which has auto-complete, syntax highlighting, and so on, but no dropdown. Or we can use a dropdown control which doesn't have auto-complete and syntax highlighting.
I guess we would need to somehow bolt on a new dropdown feature of the normal expression control. That could be complicated. Is this definitely something which is important to your project?
Well, it's definitely second nature to me now to type "fn." then have all my function names appear.
Then I thought, well maybe the new feature isn't so bad, I'll give it a try. Typing " and having my function names appear is just as good after all
So I try R185 again and find that when I type " there is NO auto complete How do we keyboard jockeys use this system? (yea I know, Alt-down arrow then arrow or " to scroll)
So I'm kind of bummed out about that. But if it's only me then, meh.
Couldn't we have this:
User types " (double quote) -> function names dropdown appears, with auto complete
User types anything else -> 'normal' dropdown appears with auto complete
I don't understand why, if the function name parsing is already done (viz the dropdown) that auto complete couldn't work here?
ANYWAY I'm sure I could come to terms with the new way and everyone else seems ecstatic, so I'm sure I'd get used to it before long It does save me the trouble of having to add Text instance vars to a FN object.
Have re-installed 185 now, see how I go. Thanks.
