Why does the auto complete doesn't work properly?


When I press enter to select the suggested auto populated tags, it prints as - =""
Again I need to type and select it slow. Doesn't work blinking faster.
What's wrong?

Hi Viraj,

Which auto complete you are talking about ? Have you implemented any jQuery for auto complete ?
For example -

When I type anything like - <apex:pageBlockSection>...

I type till " <apex:page "  and the whole " <apex:pageBlockSection> " component is auto populated and highlighted. When I press enter, I just see ="" in the developer console. Might I'm doing it very faster, as I type fast. Might be its very silly. But why does it act so?

Yes, this seems to be a bug in developer console. But this seems to be specific to <apex:page prefix tags only. If you type <apex:function tag it works fine.

I have raised it as an idea to fixed here :-
Hi Viraj,

 Your talking about below one right? yes its autopopulate the realated tags and we need to select which one we want.
Some times will not understand the system which tage you will choose so only comes like " " .
better you will type fully and select the tag.

Hello sfdcviraj

Just press down and up arrow key to resolve this. It doesn't work for the very first suggestion. So by pressing arrow keys, your desired autocomplete is selected.

Thanks and Regards
