I don't know what the exact term for this is, but in german it's called "überwachte ausdrücke" ... ovserved or watched variables.

Code completion is not working correctly in there. The popup only shows when pressing . after a keyword. But when I press ctrl-space after "testObject.get" the popup is not shown.

Also, tab completion is not working. Pressing . after having selected an entry in the popup, doesn't complete it, but instead the expression is corrupted.

Short: the code completion should work like it does in the text editor.

This seems to work with 7.3.
