    2 Questions

    1) How many of you like using auto-complete? Personally, I hate it. It only ........es me off and gets in the way of my typing (not allowing me to see what I've typed). This is in Dev-C++.

    2) Is it just me, or did the Cprog icon change? If it didn't, I swear I'm going crazy.

    1) AutoComplete angers me, too.

    2) I haven't been paying much attention to the CProg banner or anything, so I'm not too sure.

    1. I do not like auto-complete...I like it for the url text but not for anything else.

    2. ...weird, it did change...within the last day...I think...

    I actually love autocomplete though using it can make you very reliant on it. I for one have become useless without it.
    Give me a bad reputation!!!

    1) I've learned to like the autocomplete stuff (I assume it's similar in MSVC, which is what I like)

    2) Yes it has. http://cboard.cprogramming.com/images/attach/cpp.gif is also now missing, so attached .cpp files don't show an icon... not sure if they did before, but now there's a blank spot
    Away.

    The old one was better. That had a more average German town down to earth-feeling, while this new one has a futuristico up in the sky sci fi-feeling, which is not as nice.

    I think its helpful when you're trying to find a specific method. Instead of loading up MSDN or whatever library you use, you can just search through using auto complete.

    Auto-complete and the tooltips get in the way of my code. I can't really see what I've done.
