IDE problem

For some reason my IDE is Messed up...

For instance when you type

"Dim blah As New ADODB."

it should dropdown a list of properties/methods available..  For some reason it is no longer doing this (I did go to Tools > Options > Code Settings and they are selected)

What's odd is that on some forms it works and some forms it doesn't...

Anyone have an idea on what could be going on...

or some wrong or duplicate declaration.  Try "Start With Full Compile (Ctrl+F5)"

Hi Ketapillar,

are your references still pointing to the correct dll's or tlb's?

you can check it in tools|references

for ADO it should be something like MS Active X etc...

The reference is pointing correctly...

another think to note is when I type the name of a module within the same project i'm not getting a dropdown either.

I got the same error. What i did was deselect all in editor , code options, save and rerun VB.
Then checked again.
Other thing that could do that is if you mispelled name variable or object type, i.e.
'dummy example
dim rs as adodb.computer    

set rs= new adodb.recordset
rs.... shows nothing

I think you get the idea.

Hi,

This sort of thing also happens if your code is in an uncompilable state, ie if you have an unterminated if statement (ie no end if) or a missing end sub, or something like that.

I had a static variable declared outside of the procedures.  Need to watch the cut&paste

Thanks
