question on controlling code insight pick lists


#1

Hi, I’ve recently upgraded to Toad 10.6.0.42. When I’m typing pl/sql
code, everytime I type ‘OR’ there is a long pause and then a long pick
list of oracle objects appears. I tried several times unsuccessfully
to change my option settings to turn this off and finally un-checked
‘Enable Code Insight pick list’. However, I would like to get a pick
list of columns when I type a table synonym followed by a ‘.’ example
select * from test_table t where t. I’m sure there must be someway to
configure this correctly, but haven’t been able to figure it out from
the documentation. Any suggestions? Thanks. Wendy

There’s a pick list above that option you disabled, find expected tokens
and uncheck it.

It was decided some time back to include expected tokens and available identifiers into that list. It seems a little too aggressive as it is now and could benefit from a little tweaking. You can disable those features and return it to the behavior as it was in 10.1 and earlier by unchecking “Available Identifiers” and “Expected Tokens” in the insight items list located here… View|Options|Editor|Code Assist.
