Description Alan McGovern 2011-09-25 16:02:31 UTC
Filling in the generic parameter is flaky for a two reasons:
1) There's no autoselection of the best match
2) It's easy to 'lose' completion by hitting backspace

Completion of the method did not update from byte[] to ArrayStream until well after the fact.

It's not something I can change atm - you're working on a file that contains errors.

Atm it's not a very good idea taking the info from these files and putting them into the code comletion database. This has to wait for the new resolver version, there I could try out some merging strategies.

btw. when the error is fixed in the file the code completion acts correctly.

I think it's fixed.
It's the ctrl-backspace thing in the screencast
