Related Info

Content assist is a function provided in parts of Tizen Studio to help you write code faster and more efficiently.

Content assist allows you to quickly type names in the context of the code. For example, you can simply type in the first letter as lowercase (or uppercase for a type or variable name), and press Ctrl + Space to be offered all the choices that match the entered letters and are valid for the current context (class name, interface name, variable, or field names).

Tizen Studio supports Web API, W3C API, jQuery API, and jQuery Mobile API. The content assist functionality can be expanded with support for user-defined and third party APIs.

Adding User-defined APIs

    Tizen Studio supports the .xml and .widlprocxml files.
