How to make autocomplete work without having to ctrl-space? Just like it works in Visual Studio 2008? This will be for my own language.

Hi Bernie,

You can request a completion session to start by raising the EditorCommands.RequestIntelliPromptCompletionSession command on the SyntaxEditor. If you have an ICompletionProvider registered as a service on your language (see documentation) it will be called in response to that. This way is a good way to have a toolbar button fire off the completion session request.

We also just added some new features for starting a completion session when you start typing a new word. They will be in the next maintenance release. Check this out:
