During test run 23585.

I can start a line with any special character and then start typing any keyword and auto complete appears.

Except ']'.

After ], typing does not open the autocomplete box.

MonoDevelop 2.8.6

Autocompletion can only provide information that's are valid within the current context. If the context is not valid code, the it may not be able to provide completion. Do you have a more complete example for which completion fails?
Comment 2 PJ 2012-01-10 14:17:40 UTC
You're totally right. I never tested it with any valid code.

I talked to eric and he provided me with an example where autocomplete should open after a ] and it did work. "string[] s = new string[].XXX" autocomplete opened on the .

Problem is a bad test case. I will modify with correct steps and expected behavior.
