Allegro CL version 10.1
This page is new in 10.1.


Arguments: ide-configuration

If this IDE user option is enabled, then typing a space after a symbol in the IDE's editor or listener will automatically invoke the command "Help | Quick Symbol Info" to display brief information about the symbol in the status bar.

This option is enabled by default, though it may interfere with some input methods that use multiple keystrokes for typing some characters, if one of the keys in such a sequence is the spacebar. If this happens, you can turn this option off to avoid the problem.

This option is not on the Options dialog, but you could turn it off interactively with Tools | Inspect System Data | IDE Configuration Options menu command, or programmatically with this expression:

(setf (ide:show-quick-symbol-info-on-space
        (configuration ide:*ide-system*))
