Is there an option to enable the auto complete to always show up?
My problem right now is that it only shows up when I write something like that (foo->…) but not if I’m writing the word “foo”.
I really like what you did with the autocomplete (my example: foo->pressiure) and if I backspace until “press” it automatically comes back again and shows “pressure”.
Would it be possible to implement this also for my question above if its not already inside?
I’m using Visual Studio 2019 Preview 4.2 with VisualGDB build 3009

Update: I found the option that the clang intellisense is always showing up (“Suggest name as you type them”).
You can ignore my two questions above.
But my new question: I had to write “exp: foo->” so I can see the window and make adjustments. Is there another window where I can edit those options?
If not would it be possible to add those options inside the “VisualGDB project properties” under the IntelliSense Settings?
This would be in my opinion the first place if you search for options for the intellisense
PS: You did an amazing job with the intellisense, I really like it. Props on you! 😉March 14, 2019 at 23:03 #24265
The suggestions are automatically derived from scanning the code and cannot be adjusted. If you believe they are not working as expected and can reproduce it on a project that otherwise builds successfully, please share the repro steps and we will investigate.March 15, 2019 at 08:51 #24278
I think you didn’t read my second post or you misunderstood it.
My question was about the intellisense window with their options at the bottom showing up for auto complete suggestions:
If you have deactivated the thunderbolt symbol “Suggest names as you type them” then it’s difficult to get to those options for the intellisense window (see screenshot #1) because it won’t show up normally.
I had to do something like this to even get the window up:
bm280->first then the window showed up and at this point I could change those options (inside the autocomplete window).
Would it be possible to add these options under the IntelliSense Settings window of the VisualGDB Project Properties too?
This would be in my opinion the first place if you search for options for the intellisense.

Thanks for the clarification. There is already an option for this under Tools->Options->Text Editor->C/C++ (VisualGDB)->Advanced->Code Completion->Suggest names while typing.
If the option is disabled, you can invoke the suggestion menu explicitly via Edit->IntelliSense->Complete Word command (Ctrl-Space) which is standard for all Visual Studio project types.
