Modifying Call Tips and Intellisense Behavior


I like the way call tips displays argument variables for functions when
you type the "(" after the function name. However, if one of the
arguments to the function is something like "SomeMod.attrib ute", the
intellisense will display all the exposed methods and attributes when
"SomeMod." is typed. This is fine but once I have selected the desired
attribute and continue with entering the next argument, the original
call tip for the function I'm working on is lost. I think it would be
nice if one could hit a key sequence or something to recall the last
call tip.

Are there some other python editors that have this type of behavior?

If not, where should I start looking to tweak.

Thanks

You haven't said what editor/IDE you're using now.

I'm using Pythonwin editor now but I have also looked at SPE (Stani),
PyAlaCarte. I tried to get Eric3 but never could get the Qt stuff to
work.

All seem to handle calltips and intellisense slightly different but all
seem forget the base funcion call tip once another call tip or
intellisense is displayed while filling in the arguments.

I guess I would like to use the Pythonwin editor but I'm not against
other editors if they can be made to work the way I described.

When a struct is created in C# and a parameterized constructor defined, the IntelliSense editor shows only the syntax for the parameterized constructor in tooltips, but not for the default constructor which appears to still exist. If this is not designed behavior, is it a bug or am I misusing my struct? If it is by design, could you please explain? I realize the behavior of a struct, as regards constructors, is different from that of...

Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. It seems to work most when declaring variables, and hitting "::" between namespaces. But when I hit "->" I get the message "Intellisense: no additional information available" in the status bar, sometimes. Other times it works. What the hell is that all about? C# and VB's intellisense works just fine, and has since VS 4.0 150 years ago.

Intellisense has begun to act up. It has worked great until now. It just started that when I type the first letter of a word it immediately adds a set of parenthesis after the letter. If I try to backspace, I can delete the close parenthesis but when I get to the open parenthesis it retypes them both and puts the cursor at the end of the line. It doesn't matter which character I type on the line, it always does this weird behavior. I have...

I have a C# .NET 1.1 solution that consists of 2 projects. The first project is a class library that has well formed XML documenation. In this project IntelliSense shows me the description of each method. I have added a reference to this class library in the second project. But IntelliSense doesn't show me the description of any method. Note: I have compiled the class library so that it generates a doc file named assemblyname.dll.xml but...

Ok, we are all aware of the situation where modifying the folder structure (adding files, folders, deleting files, etc) will result in ASP.NET triggering a recompilation/restart of the application. In a nutshell, I understand how this can be considered desireable by some, but I am not one of those people. My situation is that we have a root site (hosted @ http://www.mydomain.com) in the root application folder '/'.
