Just wondering:
Which completion is the best , or most commonly used ?


I use all three, but probably Smart Completion the most. It all depends on
what you're trying to complete. For example, if you're in a method that returns
an int, and you have a String variable "str", you can't use Smart Completion
to return the string's length, because IDEA won't include "str" in the smart
completion list for the int return type.

Each has its uses. I usually go in this order: Smart complete to see if
IDEA can figure out what I want, normal complete to see if there's
something available, and class completion if it's a class that needs to
be imported.

I have a question. When you CTRL-SHIFT-N for a file and it is actually
a class, it then displays class hits when there are no files (should go
both ways, but it does not). Why not have the CTRL-SPACE do the same
thing. If you hit control space and there are no hits, it should
automatically try CTRL-ALT-SPACE to see if it is an non-imported class.

Does this seem useful?

Requested and ignored.

Please request it again. Maybe this time it'll be implemented.
