hi i am using 2 different IDEs.
  1. B4X
  2. Visual Studio
Can we develop an autocomplete feature like in the visual studio?
When using 2 different IDE, we constantly have to make corrections due to habit.

This request may have been submitted before, I searched for it but could not find it. Sorry.
Thanks.

An example for those who do not understand and use visual studio;

It is clearly visible in the video.

B4X IDE Coding ;
B4X:
Dim str as String

If Str="" 'i press enter not auto complete "then" and "end if" ..
'Okey??

i coding Visual Studio IDE;
B4X:
Dim str as String

If Str="" 'i press enter auto complete "then" and "end if" ..

'so;

If Str="" Then

End If

B4X IDE i enter press not auto complete "then" and "end if"
Visual Studio IDE i enter press auto complete "then" and "end if"

For B4X autocomplete;
B4X:
Dim str as String
If str="" Then ' i press enter autocomplete "end if"..
"then" I have to write.

Maybe you understand better.

You might want to give examples on how you would want to improve/change the autocomplete in B4X. As it stands, your wish is vague, especially for those of us not using Visual Studio.

This is a convenience request.
Is your aim here to be better than Visual Studio or not?
To develop a forward-looking IDE, it is necessary to keep up with people's habits. I believe in this.
Who wants to use can use it. Anyone who does not want to use it may not. He can write at length.
People can keep typing and writing the same action when they have plenty of time.

Being critical of every issue does not help. :)

So basically you have nothing concrete to suggest, it's more a hand-wavey wish for generic improvement? That's a difficult wish to work with.

I find it difficult to follow your reasoning. But at least I've now understood that you wish for the autocomplete to be faster.

I've never thought it to be slow, if you do perhaps you should just post a new thread about it to get some help. It might be something with your computer.

I develop 40 hours a week with Visual Studio, but I've never noticed this before or am not that lazy :p. What I rather noticed is that "Auto Format" is not automatically formatted like the one in VS. But I got used to pressing ALT + F in B4X.

I think this issue has nothing to do with laziness. Not everyone's daily time is as large and plentiful . These features give people practicality and usability.
Why should I write at length when the autocomplete feature is available? (VS) :p :D

Thankss...
