Code completion is commonly used in programming IDEs such as Borland Delphi, MS Visual Studio.net, Kdevelop, MonoDevelop and many

many more.

 

LA implements two kinds of code completion.

 

The first type is called schema completion.  Schema completion is activated by typing the name of a schema in the editor followed by

a . (period). If you typed a valid schema name and it has objects you will see all that are available.  The list box that is displayed will filter as you

type.

(Schema completion is available only on the Postgresql version)

The second type is user invoked completion and this is activated by hitting CTRL+SPACE.
