Xcode 4 configuration

Hi All,

I figured that since the IDE section of this site talks about Eclipse IDE (for good reason, such we all love our Java) this was a better place to ask my question.

The issue I have right now with Xcode 4 is that I don't get good code hints. (They call it code sense, completion list, whatever). Right now, I want that functionality from Eclipse, where if I do <object name>. a completion list with all methods would appear.

Xcode does like an autosuggestion thing, but that's not very helpful. I want a list of all the methods I can use.

I checked the Documentation of my Xcode Preferecnes, and I seem to have the libraries installed.

If I recall you can after you type the "." hit "Command-." and a list of available methods pops up.

Thanks for the reply mark.

For some reason on mine its Shift + some strange symbol I can't make out. Its like a circle with an arrow pointing to the northwest. Any idea what that button is on my MacBookPro?

I agree. Here's the link:
