Delphi – 2010/2009 code-completion changes making life harder..

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/02/01

I’m trying to create a list of code completion changes in Delphi 2009 and 2010 that make life a harder (as compared to Delphi 2007).
The reason is that I want to post a summary in a QC report, so they get fixed.

Please comment below to add your own.
I’ll summarize in a week or 2.

These are the ones I found:

  1. When the code completion list is visible, pressing the Enter key would select the topmost item and complete it
  2. When you press ctrl-space to activate the code completion list, and you had already typed part of an identifier, the topmost item would match this identifier

I have the idea that this is caused by the fact that when the code completion list becomes visible, the topmost item in the list is not automatically being selected in Delphi 2009/2010, where in Delphi 2007 (and before) it was.

It seems you now need to press the down-arrow once to select it.
That means one action extra, while the code completion list has always meant to be a productivity boost.

Please comment….
