Using content assist

Content assist in the LotusScript® editor in Eclipse (LSEE) is similar to auto-completion in the Notes® editor, but not exactly the same.

About this task

When you type a period and pause, content assist provides a list of suggestions to complete the statement. To explicitly invoke content assist, click Ctrl+Space. Content assist displays a list of syntax for elements appropriate to the current context. You can select from the list to place the syntax in the editor.
Content assist works for the following elements:
  • Global method scope - all variables defined in the method including variables passed as arguments, all global variables and methods defined in the current library, all public variables and methods defined in a referenced library or LotusScript extension (LSX).
  • Class method scope - all variables defined in the method including variables passed as arguments, all variables and methods defined in the class, all global variables and methods defined in the current library, all public variables and methods defined in a referenced library or LotusScript extension (LSX).
  • Class or type scope - all public properties and methods defined in the class or type.
  • Use statement - list of possible script libraries.
