Mostly for Wingware support:
Auto-complete is great, and it could be even more lovable if the UI would do this one additional helpful thing:
Scroll the drop-down completion list to a position that reveals the maximum number of possible completions.
Suppose I have an object which has the following fields:
In the code I start to type: 'MyObject.som'
Autocomplete pops up, and shows:
In other words, the dropdown list scrolls up only so far as to reveal the first matching item,
hiding the fact that there are additional possibilities that start with 'som'. I can reveal more using the scrollbar or down arrow, but it breaks concentration to have to do that.
Instead, I think the list should auto scroll up to reveal as many matching items as will fit, (without scrolling the first matching item off the top).
