CallTips - How to Add Keywords with Spaces



  • Hi,

    I have created a Auto completion list with Keywords having Spaces like ‘Alias1 2 3’ but Np++ is showing Alias1, 2,3 as the Auto complete list.

    Could you please help me on how to make NP++ to display Keyword with spaces in Autocomplete list.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Sathish.



  • Currently that does not seem possible. Internally the keywords are joined together into a list by using spaces, so if a keyword happens to have a space in it, then it sees it as two keywords.

    In theory with a few code modifications it would be possible though.



  • How can I make the code modification to show words with spaces?



  • Internally Notepad++ would have to use a different character (one that does not show up in the keywords) to join the keywords. Most likely this would be a configurable option in the xml file. Then that character would be specified to Scintilla when calling SCI_AUTOCSETSEPARATOR.



  • I have added following line in xml but no luck with spaces.

    <Environment ignoreCase=“yes” startFunc="(" stopFunc=")" paramSeparator="," terminal=";" additionalWordChar="\s"/>.

    How can I configure the space to accept in XML.



  • In theory with a few code modifications it would be possible though.

    I was meaning C++ code modifications.
