[Service Studio] Auto complete support in Properties Pane

Service Studio
On our radar
It would be nice to have the Expression Editor auto-complete feature applied to properties pane. This way we could use the keyboard more efficiently.

One of the things I sometimes like about the properties pane is that it *doesn't* support autocomplete. But that's because the autocomplete really struggles when you are editing in the middle of existing code. If the autocomplete was more robust for that use, I would definitely want this. It's still better than SQL Server Management Studio though. :D

Merged this idea with 'Change the assign option - Allow using expression editor' (created on 07 Feb 2019 10:03:49 by Romero)

When we want to assign a value, the option were you can choose the variable to be assigned is very limited, it would be nice if in the bottom left corner we could get one option to SWITCH to the "manual editor" . A quick example :


Imagine that i want to change a value in my list and instead running a loop until i find it i prefer to use the "ListIndex" option to get the position were we want to set the new value. If i want to do something like this : 

TranslationsList[ListIndexOf.Position].attValue


What i usually end up doing in cases like this is opening the editor, get my "variable" to be assigned and then copy and paste to the assign.

Although you can write manually (all the ENTIRE assign without help like autocomplete) on the assign variable field it is not as friendly as with the "editor".

Hey Romero,

The way we see that happening is by bringing some auto complete capabilities (available in Expression Editor) to the properties pane and there is already an idea for that:

I'll merge this ideas so that we can sum the votes.

Cheers,
