Lua Development Tools (LDT) uses so called Execution Environment for code assistance (auto-complete suggestions and tooltips). I tried to create one for Halion.
halion.zip (74.6 KB)
How to install:
- Download the attachment. Do not unzip.
- In LDT go to Window>Preferences>Lua>Execution Environments. Click the Add button and select the Execution Environment file.
More detailed information can be found here: Managing Execution Environments
Some functions return an array with objects (findLayers, findZones, …). If you use ipairs with this array you will get no auto complete suggestions.
zones = this.parent:findZones() for i, zone in ipairs(zones) do --no suggestions after typing zone: end
Using numeric for loop or accessing the table values by index should work.
Default shortcut to invoke auto complete suggestions is Ctrl + Space. After typing colon or dot auto complete suggestions should appear automatically.
