For some reason auto completion in DLangIDE never worked for me. I need some suggestions.

How to trigger the auto completion?
Can I just type '.' after an object and will the auto-completion popup? This does not work for me.

Should I hit any shortcut key?
I tried ctrl+space, alt+space, shift+space, no effect.

I am using pre-compiled DlangIDE 0.8.5 on windows-7, using latest DMD.

Any help is appreciated.

I also tried Ctrl+Shift+G and Ctrl+Shift+Space, no effect.

OK, after trying few more things I figured that

Auto completion in DlangIDE, CoEdit, etc works only for
* stuff declared locally in the file or in the local project.
* stuff from phobos.

Auto completion DOES NOT work for third party libraries, like DWT, etc.
Could someone help me how to make auto-complete work for third party libs?

Thanks in advance

I think they use DCD for completion. dcd-server has a switch (and a command from client) to import library from path.

Probably dcd config is missing those paths!
