I don’t know Terry Peterson, but he has identified a source of something that has been bugging me for a while.
I have done some work on the Dev-Cpp IDE, written in Delphi, and the methods dropdown of TMainForm would only show 35 methods … out of 339. (!)
At some stage in the past I had gone as far as to copy the file, strip out all the code from all procedures, etc using Notepad++ … and … in the IDE the dropdown showed all of the methods.
This now makes sense. The dropdown listing dies at the first encounter with an inline var declaration.
