this sounds a bit stupid, but i try for several days now to get autocomplete working. i have a clean install of pdt and one with plugins like aptana and subversion, but none works with autocomplete. what do i have to do that i get a list with all functions, variables, etc beginning with "str" for example when i type "str"? Do i need some shortcut for this? In Netbeans it is working without shortcuts...and this video looks like its working in eclipse too.
Thanks for any hints and help ;)
For me, when using PDT, when I begin to type a variable, I can do Ctrl-space and I get a list of matching defined variables in my code. I believe you can get the list automatically. If you go
Window » Preferences, then find PHP in the left column. Expand PHP, expand Editor, and select Code Assist. I believe Auto Activation is the option to pop up the autocomplete automatically.
