Hi, I get no intellisense with visual d when using gtk.

I use a file that imports all of gtk, like so:


module gtk.All;

public import gtk.AboutDialog;
...
public import gtk.WindowGroup;

then I use

import gtk = gtk.All

but when using

gtk.
or gtk.WindowGroup.

or somegtkWidget.

no intellisense ever appears or it appears with only the basic object elements.


This makes it very hard to navigate through gtk as I am unfamiliar with most of the nomenclature.

Is there any way to get VisualD to properly show the intellisense for these objects and modules? Even if necessarily having to specify direct inclusion.

If I just do

gtk.gtk.gtk.gtk.gtk.gtk.gtk....

in an empty d file it goes on and on always listing the same intellisense. Changing things like gtk.gtkd.gtk.gtkd.... doesnt change the results.

The intellisense listed is ByRecord, Error, Exception, File, Interface, etc. I do not think they are part of gtk.

In any case, it clearly isn't working and there doesn't seem to be any way to correct it. It would be nice if we could precompile intellisense data from a set of modules(e.g., specify that it build an intellisense database from a directory recursively... probably would be faster too). Phobos, gtk, and other libraries generally do not change often enough that it should work well. One of the biggest issues I seem to have with Visual D is intellisense not really working correctly, if it works at all, but this isn't a hard problem, is it?

AFAICT the completion has problems with public imports in imported modules: they don't add any symbols. This should be fixed in https://github.com/dlang/visuald/releases/tag/v0.45.0-rc1

If you let the compiler generate JSON data for your project (see language options), Visual D can add the contained symbols to the completion lists. You can also add precompiled JSON files (see global options). This doesn't use any scope information, though, so the list can grow enormously.

You bet it is ;-) It needs to rebuild the compiler front end, just being more friendly regarding error recovery and incremental changes. Visual D uses dparser from the Mono-D project, which still seems the most extensive solution.

No luck. gtk. does nothing intellisense wise. I have all the check boxes checked under language options/intellisense.

In the solution.json file, There is this, which only seems to be import modules and enums, no functions are added, maybe that is the problem? I do not have the gtk files in the solution(they are only imported during compilation), do I need to import them in to the solution for everything to work? (

It would be nice if we could precompile intellisense data from a set of modules(e.g., specify that it build an intellisense database from a directory recursively... probably would be faster too). Phobos, gtk, and other libraries generally do not change often enough that it should work well.

It works for me, but takes a couple of seconds to digest all the gtk files. There is no completion before that finishes. I've tried it with a file looking like this:

module gtkAll;

public import gtk.AboutDialog;
public import gtk.AccelGroup;
...


> In the solution.json file, There is this, which only seems to be import modules and enums, no functions are added, maybe that is the problem? I do not have the gtk files in the solution(they are only imported during compilation), do I need to import them in to the solution for everything to work? (

The project built JSON file only covers the files actually in the project. You can create a full JSON file with the help of rdmd, e.g.

rdmd -X gtkd\gtkAll.d

That will likely fail due to object file generation or link errors, but should still build the JSON file.

What do I do with the json file when it is created? Where does it go? I'd like to get intellisense to work with gtkD. I tried adding the gtkD but it locked up VS. The files are 10MB+. There are two files.

gtkD_all.exe.json
gtkD_all.json

How do I tell visual D to look in those files to use for intellisense?

Visual D has a "Build Phobos Browse Info". Is that essentially what it does but on the phobos src directory?

I put the files in a dir and told that under the JSON edit box in properties in visual D/studio and eventually it seems that intelligent started working. (it didn't work at first but after a few hours I noticed that I was getting intellisense, not sure if that is what did it or something else I might have fiddled with).

How does Visual D use those files? Does the file name have anything to do with it or does it just load any files inside the dir and then search the json for a match?

The reason I ask is so I can add other intellisense libraries to it in the future and maybe be a bit more happier with visual D :)

Yes, more or less the latter. You can also browse the loaded JSON files in the "Object Browser" window.

It seems to be working. I haven't done any thorough testing but what I have noticed is that it seems to list any functions that match rather than reduce the number.

e.g.,

I have a gtkApplicationWindow called mainWindow.

I do

mainWindow.getSize(...)

It lists all the getSizes that exist. There are 11... but only one for mainWindow. e.g., it shows one for glib, one for atk, etc.

Not sure if the json is incomplete or visual D does not try to match the function to the object type it is used on?

Not a huge deal but through me off for a second until I realized what was going on. Not ideal but better than nothing. Maybe a simple fix?

As noted before, the JSON support predates semantic analysis. It doesn't have any scope/symbol lookup information so it just lists matching identifiers. That's sometimes useful (e.g. if an import is still missing), but the semantic analysis result is often more accurate (but much harder to implement).

It might be nice to integrate these two approaches, so that Visual D could insert an import automatically when selecting a completion without appropriate import. That's unlikely to happen very soon, though.

(this is a bit long of a post so take your time(when you have time, I'm in no rush) and get some coffee ;)


What about locals not seeming to show up? Not sure if my question got answered or not?

separator.addOnButtonPress((Event e, Widget w)
										{
        // no intellisense on e and w										   											return true;
										});


I can follow Event and Widget to peek at the code but that is pretty time consuming. Also, listing all matches does no good.

Surely the json output of dmd could be updated so that it gives the hierarchy of the type and then that can simply be matched and only those members that match the hierarchy are shown(or shown first)?

e.g.,

Event e;

when I type e. The compiler/debugger must know that Event is of type gdk.Event. If the debugger cannot get that, then I guess everything is fubar'ed.

Once it knows that, it should be able to look that up in the json. If not, then the json generation should be updated to add that.

This is the gdk.Event listing in the json file I generated for gdk:

 {
  "name" : "gdk.Event",
  "kind" : "module",
  "file" : "gtkd\\gdk\\Event.d",
  "members" : [
   {
    "name" : "gdk.Device",
    "kind" : "import",
    "line" : 27,
    "char" : 16,
    "protection" : "private"
   },
   {
... other imports ...
}
  {
    "name" : "gtkd.Loader",
    "kind" : "import",
    "line" : 38,
    "char" : 16,
    "protection" : "private"
   },
   {
    "name" : "Event",
    "kind" : "class",
    "line" : 73,
    "char" : 8,
    "members" : [
     {
      "name" : "gdkEvent",
      "kind" : "variable",
      "protection" : "protected",
      "line" : 76,
      "char" : 22,
      "deco" : "PS4gtkc8gdktypes8GdkEvent",
      "offset" : 8
     },
     {
     ... other members ...
     }

and it seems that pretty much the json lists all the members that exist.

So it should be quite simple for the debugger to figure out what to list rather than just blinding searching the json!?

Basically instead of searching the full json, we restrict it to the sub-hierarchy of gdk.Event. This limits the search results and everything is good.

That does require us to know that e and Event are suppose to use

 {
  "name" : "gdk.Event",
  "kind" : "module",
  "file" : "gtkd\\gdk\\Event.d",


And I must assume that is where the problem is at. How do we know Event and/or e are gdk.Events during editing?

Well, obviously "go to reference" gets it right! so somehow visual D is figuring it out. Since it can open the module when that is done(I use that feature all the time as that seems to be my "intellisense" that works best currently).

Since it can open that module it should just have to find that match in the json modules(like the one above) then use the reduced json tree instead of the full tree.

It doesn't seem too complicated and all the code seems to be there to do it effectively?

While, I guess, module names are not unique and one might have to do a bit more parsing, all that should be pretty direct and basic.

Am I on the right track here?  I guess I could try to download visual D source and see if I could do that but I imagine I'd waste a lot of my own time unless it's pretty obvious in the source code what is going on.

Basically visual D should have, internally, a tree corresponding to the json where it can search to return the proper results and it is just a matter of proper searching?(it seems to just return all results in some cases or no results in others).


------------------------------Part 2----------------------------
I just tried downloading the source code and get

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat"

when building build.

There is no vsvars32.bat in that directory.

There is

VsDevCmd
and
VsMSBuildCmd

which I'm not sure if it is a new build system or what.

I copyed VsDevCmd to vsvars32 since I do not find that string anywhere in the solution(might be a M$ issue?).

I then get

"..\bin\Debug\tlb2idl.exe" does not exist

which !!!fails!!! the build.

Looking at **build.bat** I get

c:\l\dmd-1.056\windows\bin\dmd.exe -g tlb2idl.d oleaut32.lib uuid.lib snn.lib kernel32.lib

which is definitely not where my dmd is installed. **That seems to be hard coded.**

Also in that same file is

m:\s\d\cv2pdb\trunk\bin\debug\cv2pdb -D1 tlb2idl.exe tlb2idl_pdb.exe

which, I think I have no m drive. Using the installed VisualD's cv2pdb, and running build.

I get

---------
D:\Repos\visuald-master\tools>c:\d\dmd2\windows\bin\dmd.exe -g tlb2idl.d oleaut32.lib uuid.lib snn.lib kernel32.lib
tlb2idl.d(4): Deprecation: module std.c.windows.com is deprecated - Import core.sys.windows.com instead

D:\Repos\visuald-master\tools\tlb2idl_pdb.pdb: cannot load PDB helper DLL
------

There is a tlb2idl.exe now. Copied that to bin\debug. Reran build solution and now it is translating...


after that is finished I get

------
WindowsSdkDir=C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\
Error: cannot execute coffimplib, please add to PATH
------

which seems to be !!hardcoded!! set COFFIMPLIB=c:\l\dmc\bin\coffimplib.exe
at line 30 in sdk_libs.

I don't even have that in my dmc(using dmd2 installer, which wanted to install dmc, but I guess that needs to be updated to install that. I'll hunt for it online).


After all that, the build project built without errors.

Now trying to build VisualD project I get

Building ..\bin\Debug\vsi.lib...
win32\handleapi.d(40): Error: found 'hObject' when expecting ')'
win32\handleapi.d(41): Error: semicolon expected following function declaration
win32\handleapi.d(41): Error: declaration expected, not ')'


I remove the _Post_ptr_invalid_ and tried to rebuilt again and got the errors

win32\rpcdce.d(1717): Error: undefined identifier `RpcBindingInqAuthClientW`, did you mean alias `RpcBindingInqAuthClient`?
win32\rpcdce.d(1718): Error: undefined identifier `RpcBindingInqAuthClientExW`, did you mean alias `RpcBindingInqAuthClientEx`?
vsi\vsregkeynames.d(29): Error: undefined identifier `REGKEY_BLENDROOT_CURRENT`
vsi\vsregkeynames.d(30): Error: undefined identifier `LREGKEY_BLENDROOT_CURRENT`

I imagine this will continue ;/ Seems to be something wonky with the project. These errors seem to be releated to win32?

Have you been able to get Visual D to build on a completely fresh install(That is basically what I'm using) or are you using the same system that you've been using since the start?

Maybe all these problems is why no one is helping with it? Seems like a lot of trouble(not blaming you or anything, just saying it might be worth fixing these issues).



-----------------------------
Fixes:

Paths that are hard coded - Either add some type of intelligent search algorithm or put all the hard coded paths in one spot so the user can easily find and build them. Put in the docs the things that are required to build and modify to get things to work.



"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat"
Try to use others if this doesn't exist.



build.bat:

Hard coded dmd - simply try to use path first and see if dmd.exe exists in it. Most people using visual D will have dmd installed and it will have added itself to the path
c:\l\dmd-1.056\windows\bin\dmd.exe

Hard coded cv2pdb
m:\s\d\cv2pdb\trunk\bin\debug\cv2pdb -D1 tlb2idl.exe tlb2idl_pdb.exe
(change this to standard visual D install C:\Program Files (x86) since most likely the end user will have Visual D installed to the default path. Do not hard code in build.bat though)



sdk_libs:

Hard coded coffimplib. Not sure what to do here but probably use the dmd.exe as a reference then back track since the dmd2 installer installs dmc relative to it. It doesn't come with coffimplib but maybe it could be added so it exists.

set COFFIMPLIB=c:\l\dmc\bin\coffimplib.exe
at line 30 in sdk_libs.


When these files are missing good error messages should report they are missing(probably checked at the start rather than failing in the middle of the build process.

All these errors are from hard coded paths an missing files. Should be easy fixes.
