Tip n°4: how to make coding fast and easy


When developing on the ABAP stack you can use “Ctrl+Space” to invoke the automatic code completion feature that will list every method of a class, every field of a structure, or every local variable name in your program, etc. corresponding to your current edit position:

      Good piece of info.I'll definitely try out the template maintenance.

      Do you know from which version of ABAP code completion is available? Or is there any way you can disable code completion or enable it if its already not?

      Hi John,

      Thanks. I don't know the version, but it is quite old for sure 🙂

      And you can enable/disable abap code completion in your settings, see above link (second one in "to get more information" section) to online help.
