[New Feature] C# In-Browser Autocomplete

We've released an autocomplete feature this weekend to make your coding easier - it will automatically pop up when you're typing and autocompletes with common C# keywords, along with the QuantConnect API. We are still filling out the documentation but its linked to GitHub so will only get better with time.



Thanks to the new subscribers for showing your support! Happy coding!

Hi Jared - just digging up some old posts, wanted to quickly confirm: is the autocompletion/intellisense still showing the method/variable descriptions based off the QA API (ie. "Automatically place an order which will set the holdings..." in the above)? I get the autocompletion for the method parameters but not for the method description (tested in Chrome and Firefox).

Just setup Xamarin with the LEAN engine so I'm all set when I have access to my desktop (albeit not as convenient having to copy code over to Chrome to backtest with the full data populations), so was just wondering if this is just not showing up for me via the web IDE or if this has been scraped since 2014?

Hey Kevin! Previously autocomplete was using JSON comments in the source files and we had to manually maintain the comments! It also wouldn't support dot notation (e.g. Resolution.Minute).. so we converted it to a true compiled-autocomplete in C#. Now you get dot-notation support, but just no comments. We're redoing a bunch of these things now live trading is launched so we'll review this soon :)
