I wanted to know if the autofill functionality is available in the python console for QGIS as the one available in ArcGIS Desktop's Python Console or am I supposed to hardcode it.

  • Yes, the code completion – SNT Feb 17 '12 at 11:29

The QGIS Python console has now been upgraded in the latest dev version to include code completion, among a lot of other tweaks and features.

There is no code completion in QGIS python console as far as I know. But I'm sure it can be added if a sponsor can be found.

Until then, the API docs are the reference: http://qgis.org/api/

  • QGIS' Python window needs a lot of love to compare to other interactive Python consoles. – Jason Scheirer Mar 19 '12 at 6:19
