Content Assist (Ctrl + Space) is not working in Eclipse
Content Assist (Ctrl + Space) is not working in Eclipse.
Content Assist (Ctrl + Space) is not working in my Eclipse IDE version 3.3. I have two Eclipse IDE installed, both in my laptop and personal desktop computer.
However my laptop Eclipse 3.3’s content assist feature is working perfectly, but not my personal desktop computer.
Every time, when i pressed on the Ctrl + Space combination keys, Eclipse just show me nothing…it’s drive me crazy.
How can such a killer feature is disabled in my Eclipse IDE !!!?
I start Googling online, this problem is happened since Eclipse IDE version 3.2, many people suffer and many solutions come out to quick fix on it.
Sadly, there is no final solution for it, some may work and some may not.
When the function Ctrl + Space in Eclipse does not work the problem is due to a conflict with a function extension “Plus” of Windows Live Messenger that lets you activate the lock Messenger with a shortcut.
To solve the problem just go in the settings of Messenger Plus section and the “Messenger Lock” uncheck “Enable Block Messenger with a shortcut”.
Restart Windows Live Messenger and your Eclipse and it work!!!
