Autocomplete for OpenStudio Scripts writing

asked 2018-09-14 08:21:05 -0600

updated 2018-09-24 11:44:30 -0600

When writing/manipulating scripts for OS I seem to have auto complete / intellisense on one computer, but not another. And cannot figure out what was done differently. Using Notepad++ as text editor. example: I type "Mod" working machine and I get autocomplete menu for "model" (and several others.) Nonworking machine, I type "Mod" and I have...."mod". Any ideas/easy fixes here?

Alright - this may be a false alarm. Notepad++ has an 'auto-completion' as part of its settings. this appears to function as more of a 'mimic other stuff in this file' rather than a true 'auto-complete' where it shows all available methods/functions/subclasses/etc. (sorry if butchering, rookie programmer)

If I turn this on, then they behave similarly.

Perhaps you installed the OpenStudio syntax highlighting capability developed by @Julien Marrec on your one computer?

I definitely have that installed on both. Its a great help, but doesnt seem to be the driver for the issue.
