[wingide-users] In rc2 autocomplete goes AWOL

Sounds like a problem I frequently have... if so, it is that the source code analyzer occasionally loses synch with files.  I tend to have this happen when I do lots of edits on a large file.

Some time ago the Wing guys gave me the attached script to solve this problem.  It gives you a nice and convenient right-click "re-analyze file" context menu option to do the job.  Once you re-analyze the file, it fixes the problem.  Just put it in the "scripts" directory of your Wing installation. You likely need to restart Wing, too.

Even if that isn't your particular problem, I find this script indispensable for when you do inevitably see it happen if doing a lot of work in Wing.

At random and infrequent times autocomplete just won't seem to find a certain 
symbol. I can't for certain pin it down but it may be related to this:

Was just typing a reference to a method inside a class like:


(much later in the class)

     def MyMethod(self,...):

It won't find MyMethod even tho the method is defined later in the class and 
has been there for a long time. It may be related to the order of symbols in 
the particular file being edited. But the vast majority of the time it has no 
trouble with any of this.

Is there an elusive bug here or is it just me?
