Code Auto-completion

One of the things improved in Firebug 2 is related to code auto-completion. This feature has been improved on several places in Firebug. First, let’s see the Command Editor in the Console panel (issue 55)

 

 

You can open the auto-completion popup window by pressing the <tab> key. The screenshot shows a case where the key is pressed after typing: document.get

 

Another place where auto-completion has been improved is breakpoint condition dialog. It now offers variables in scope. Check out the following screenshot.

 

 

You can read about other auto-completion features in previous blog post.

 

Please post feedback in the newsgroup, thanks.
