    If I have multiple statements per line (i.e. using the colon to separate them), anything after the first colon doesn't get the auto-complete (Intellisense) treatment.

    If I split the statements onto multiple lines, auto-complete starts working again.

    Using B4A 5.02.

    Is this a Dim line?

    No, it's for any line that includes a colon between statements. I noticed it first in Select statements like this:
    Select currentSize
    Case DRAW_SIZE1 : size1Button.Checked = True
    Case DRAW_SIZE2 : size2Button.Checked = True
    Case DRAW_SIZE3 : size3Button.Checked = True
    End Select
    ...but I've tried all kinds of variations and it's the same for any multi-statement line using a colon to separate the statements.

    Was this ever acknowledged as a bug?

    I'm using 5.5 and the issue still exists.

    In the first picture the menu is produced as soon as the '.' is typed:

    In the second picture, when the '.' is typed no menu appears:

    It is a known bug (or limitation).
