I’m having issues with the new Advanced VS2019+ Completion popup type.
When hitting period (.) on a structure variable, the pop up occurs correctly. If I then use the arrow keys up or down to select an item, when I hit enter one of two things occurs:
A new line without any auto completion text
The auto completed text is inserted and a new line
This behavior is different than the Advanced (legacy) version. When hitting enter the text appear always, without a new line.
I attached an animated gif that shows the issue.
There appears to be other issues which are more difficult to reproduce. I haven’t kept a list yet (but I will start). Sometimes the item selected is inserted twice, for example. That looks like it is a timing / race condition issue.
However, it causes a new issue. The Manage Platforms and Configurations window now appears all the time. When the solution is opened, built, debugged, saved, and closed, this window appears. Sometimes it appears more than once in a row.
I created a new project from scratch using the Embedded Wizard and the same thing occurs in that project too (NXP MIMXRT1064DVL6A, the ‘hello world’ sdk project).
Good to know it works. The new suggestion GUI relies on the new and somewhat underdocumented APIs from Visual Studio, so it may indeed have unexpected side effects that were not found by our internal tests. We will definitely appreciate any feedback on it and will be happy to fix any issues that we can reproduce.
Edit: we just caught an issue that was sometimes causing the “waiting for the editor operation to complete” window to appear. We have fixed it in this build: VisualGDB-184.108.40.20650.msi.
