Webstorm 4 nodejs Unresolved function or method

Am in the process of comparing various IDEs and I have just installed a trial version of Webstorm 4.01.

I created a new nodejs project and was able to run it and use the debugger very easily and intuitively.

There a couple of things which I am not sure about, I have tried to search for the answers but with success so I am hoping someone here can shed some light on my querie

1. I have set the code checking t use jshint and used the code inspector to inspect the current file.  I am getting a bunch of: 'Unresolved function or method' warnings which relate to functions which are in the module which has been referenced with a require.
2. Is there any way that the code completion limits the list provided to just the relevent items?

Hi Hugh,

1. AFAIK JSHint isn't aware of functions which are defined in the module which has been referenced with a require. So it's impossible to get rid of such warnings.
2. Code completion list could be narrowed down in case of Node.js:

var http = require('http');
http.<position caret here and press Ctrl+Space>

In this case you'll have methods from http module.
