Auto completion of words

The ST / IL editor includes powerful commands for automatic completion of typed words, according to declared variables and data types. The following features are available:

Auto completion of a variable name

If you enter the first letters of a variable name, you can hit the CTRL+SPACE key for automatically completing the name. A popup list is displayed with possible choices if several declared variable names match the type characters.

Selection of FB member

When you type the name of a function block instance (use either as an instance or a data structure), pressing the point "." after the name of the instance opens a popup list with the names of possible members.

Other syntax related commands

When lines are selected, you can automatically indent them. Press TAB or Shift+TAB keys to shift the lines to the left or to the right, by adding or removing blank characters on the left.
