"import random" doesn't autocomplete in Python Editor (but it works)

Just so you know.
I find the autocomplete handy and when it doesn’t show up it gives the impression that it doesn’t work :wink:

Hi Jorgen - yeah, I see that…
Hmm - looks like it is built in - you can use it without the import statement.

Oh, now that sounds like a smart move!

That doesn’t sound right

…put it on the wish list please :slight_smile:

Can it be that Pascal just removed the “import random” from his test and ran the script and therefore it was already loaded in memory?

Sorry, but absolutely no. Auto importing behind your back is going to cause unexpected behavior. I have no problem adding random to the autocomplete list.

I think that may be the case

I’ll buy that statement in a heartbeat! And would be a fool to argue against (for too many reasons to list here) :smiley:

Hi guys, it seems like “import random” still doesn’t autocomplete, and I see that the youtrack is quite odd, since it does not state “Random” but rather “Import”… :slight_smile: (Take a look at the link above)


I won’t be working on this for V6. It might be done during V7 development.

OK. I know that it works so I’m good either way :slight_smile:
It just surprised me that it didn’t autocomplete so I went to check the status and then i noticed that the topic was a bit odd so I thought I should let you know. That’s all.
