Code Editor - Wish List
Just a list of things I have come across when using code editor that I think would be nice.

1. Add existing file option - I discovered you can currently do it through the new file menu but might be useful to have a specific option to avoid confusion.
2. Ability to move script files within project to different folders, can only do it by deleting and adding again inside correct folder using the process mentioned above.
3. Autocomplete for constructors
4. Autocomplete for private methods
5. Colour highlighting in autocomplete to show difference between class names, class variables, function parameters

3. can you give example?
4. they won't be listed if you can't access them, but if you can, then they will be listed (it's on purpose)

I would like the auto complete to work when providing the constructor definition.

But even when inside the same file where I should be able to see, if I try use autocomplete when providing method definitions only the public methods are listed, private and constructors are missing.

Well for example if I have two construtors
class Example
{
public:
Example();
Example(Int);
}

Example.
[autocomplete list]
Example()
Example(Int)
[/autocomplete list]

I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by this.

RE: Code Editor - Wish List
I understand how private and protected works, I am just wondering if its possible that the auto-complete can detect the scope that you are in, ie if inside the source file that defines the class then it should be fine to show private functions but if outside then don't.
Actually interesting to note, if the function has never been defined before then when defining functions you will only see the public methods from the header stub but once defined and compiled, the auto-complete shows both public and private even when viewing from other files.

RE: Code Editor - Wish List
it works correctly and it does detect correct scope
if you have example that it's not working then please show, but I think you're confusing scope of file and scope of class (private/protected work on scope of class - inside functions of that class only, not scope of file)

RE: Code Editor - Wish List
Actually the specific instance I am referring to is when providing function definitions.

Auto-complete will not show the private methods in the header stub, only the public ones. After it has been defined and code compiled they show up in auto-complete as they should.

I can provide an example if it helps clarify what I am referring to.

Here is the class definition.

   
Here is the auto-complete when attempting to define the private method's body. Notice the private functions are missing.

   
Here it is after they have been defined and code compiled, now I can see the private methods in auto-complete.

   
In fact I can even see them from another class (Should I be able to do this?), of course any attempt to actually use it results in compile error as expected.

Would be nice if the code editor has a hotkey to fast comment/uncomment sections of code like in VS: CTRL + K + C and CTRL + K + U.
