Title: autocomplete match ordering
Post by: mschifterForum on March 03, 2021, 05:28:00 pm
Hi,


I think it would be cool if the auto-complete system matching could be ordered for most likely match based on user preference, for example: local file, base/super classes, "current" class, workspace, language/other tags, and finally compiler tags.

Ordering in this way should help improve matching performance.

Now and in the past (many years a customer now), I wind up using complete_prev/next to get the most likely candidate, and this brings about the most likely matches.
