Description

Match case

Select this option if you want letter case to be taken into account when suggesting matches for code completion. Choose whether you want to match case for the first letter of for all letters.
This will also affect how CamelCased identifiers are matched. If First letter only is chosen, you will need to type the first letter of a CamelCased identifier in the upper case, and then you can type middle letters that you want to match in the upper or lower case. If All letters is chosen, you will need to type all dividing letters of a CamelCased identifier in the upper case to match it.

Automatically insert single suggestions

Choose whether you want to automatically complete your code if there's just one code completion suggestion for basic and/or smart completion.

Sort suggestions alphabetically

Choose this option if you want to sort items in the suggestions list in the alphabetical order instead of sorting them by relevance.

You can change this behavior at any time by clicking the sort alphabetically or sort by relevance icons in the suggestion list.

Show suggestions as you type

Select this checkbox if you want the suggestions list to be invoked automatically, without having to call completion explicitly.

Insert selected suggestion by pressing enter, dot, or other context-dependent keys

If this option is selected, JetBrains Rider will pre-select the best match in the auto-completion list to make it easier to insert — additionally to Enter and Tab, it will be also inserted when you press Space, as well as dot, open parenthesis, open bracket, semicolon, etc. (depending on the context):

If this checkbox is cleared, JetBrains Rider will highlight the best match with a soft selection — you will be able to insert it by pressing Enter or Tab.

Automatically insert parenthesis after completion:

This group of options defines how parentheses are inserted after completing a method.

Show parameter name hints on completion

Select this option if you want hints for parameter values to be displayed.

Show the parameter info popup

Select this checkbox to have JetBrains Rider automatically show a pop-up with all available method signatures when an opening bracket is typed in the editor, or a method is selected from the suggestions list.

In the text field to the right, specify the delay (in milliseconds) after when the pop-up window should appear.

If this checkbox is not selected, use Ctrl+P to show parameter info.
