JavaScript for Mobile/Reactive - Better autocomplete

Frontend
Working on it
expected delivery in Q4 2020

The new JavaScript editor for mobile apps, is great, but the autocomplete could use some work :)

The feature catches comments and strings at the moment, see below.

Hello,


This WOI Idea seems related: https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/6171/javascript-editor-upgrade-hint-autocomplete


Would someone mind checking whether the issue will be fixed in a coming release and update this Idea as well?

I think Tiago's reply references Reactive Web. I'll ask around whether that idea has been implemented. Did you test whether the autocomplete still catches comments?

Thank you Kilian!


It still does on the latest version of Service Studio 10, unfortunately I don't have easy access to a v11 environment to test there.

In P11, if you press ctrl-Space it stills tries to autocomplete, but it's not triggered automatically afaics.

At this moment you don't get much help with writing your Javascript code. It could be really handy if the editor gets an update with hints and autocomplete. Just like other IDE's or editors have. This would speed up the development and make it a lot easier.

Great idea.

There are multiple free/open-source libraries that can add this functionality.

If possible, with the functionallity the mobile Javascript editor provides. : 

- Using input and output parameters with Outsystems datatypes

- Calling screen actions directly 


This would make so much things much easier. It will remove the annoying and ugly workaround for clicking on hidden buttons to call a screen action via javascript

Validation and colour coding would be a start!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Michiel,

Great idea. We plan to bring the improvements done in mobile to the creation of new web applications soon, which include syntax highlighting, parameters, calling actions, and some validation and some autocomplete with CTRL+Space.

And even better than that: client actions that compile directly to JavaScript, so you don't need to type custom JavaScript so often.

Thanks,
Tiago Simões

I was trying to add some React code, but the editor returns an error, maybe add support for some libraries?
