|Here's a useful shortcut feature available in both VB5 and VB6 that's
managed to escape the attention of many developers somehow. The shortcut, CTRL+SPACE,
basically completes the script once you've typed the first few characters of a procedure,
constant, variable etc. If there's more than one match then the usual members list appears
with the nearest matching word highlighted. Continue typing to narrow the matches. To
select a term from the list, press a key for the character that would follow the word -
e.g. a space, full stop, or carriage return, as appropriate. You can also use the mouse.
Pressing CTRL+SPACE on an empty line, or outside of a recognisable scope (for instance,
just before a function name) opens the members list populated with globals.
shortcut particularly if you're partial to using long, descriptive variable/procedure
names, that take time to remember, let alone type! Also great for every hopeless typist
