This works for me here. Or do you mean when you write the definition of
the function?

Should work too, does here, although I use manual completion.

uhm, autocompletion has a timeout after which its activated, so if you
type fast enough it won't be triggered until you finished the word.

There's a way to disable auto code completion and argument hinting in
general, see the C++ Options. Then you can have hints or completion by
pressing Ctrl+Space.


Try to have as good a life as you can under the circumstances.
