Hi,

I am having trouble with imports that are using an alias.

For example I have the following import statement:

import vector.canoe as xxx

When I enter "xxx." the intelli prompt show the package "canoe". I would have assumed the content of "canoe" is shown.
What is worse is that when I change the import statement to this:

import vector.canoe.tfs as xxx

Now after "xxx." the intelli prompt still shows the package "canoe".

Am I missing something here, or is this a bug? I am a python novice, so I am not really sure, how this should behave.


Best regards, Tobias Lingemann.

Hi Tobias,

Thanks for reporting it, it seems to be a bug.  We've fixed it for the upcoming 22.1 version.

Hi,

I just tested the current 22.1 release and think the feature has broken the normal import. Yes the alias is used correctly if specified, but if not specified the top-level-package name is used instead.

For exmaple we add these two import by default in each document:

import vector.canoe
import vector.canoe.tfs

If I now open the intelli prompt after "vector." the content of "vector.canoe.tfs" is shown. It is like the import statement uses an alias "import vector.canoe.tfs as vector". But I don't think thats the desired behavior (I am still no Python expert).

Hi Tobias,

Thanks, we've corrected this so both scenarios work properly.  The change is ready for the next build v22.1.1.
