Possible bug in auto_complete_insert signal

Postby pmk65 » Fri May 25, 2018 5:03 pm

Im using the new "auto_complete_insert" signal in a new plugin, but Im experiencing different values depending on if the trigger keyword is enclosed in quotes or not.

Example 1:
Code: Select all
    <script type="text/javascript" src="jqu"></script>

Placing the cursor after the word jqu and activating the Autocompleter gives this result:

ListItemAtCursorAC: jqu
ACWordStart: 102
ACWordLength: 5
ACLineOffset: 0

The ACWordStart is the position occupied by the starting quote.
ACWordLength is the length of ListItemAtCursorAC + 2 (the start/ending quote)

Example 2:
Code: Select all
    <script type="text/javascript" src=jqu></script>

Placing the cursor after the word jqu and activating the Autocompleter gives this result:
ListItemAtCursorAC: jqu
ACWordStart: 212
ACWordLength: 0
ACLineOffset: 0

Here the ACWordStart is the start of the jqu word, but ACWordLength is zero!

I'll check it out, but that's basically the same that the internal auto-complete engine receives, so I can only assume there is some extra handling for unquoted attribute values afterwards. I don't know why word length is zero, it doesn't make much sense, but there might be a reason for this, even if it doesn't make sense for plugin scripting or, as is the case, hinders it.
