Like hitting CTRL-Space automatically as you type.  I use the one for Delphi 
called CNWizards which has it.

Lets say I type "tstr", then the suggestion box is displayed automatically and 
TStrings is highlighted already with TStringList next in the list etc.  At that 
point, all I have to do is hit Tab or Enter and the section is writtent the 
editor followed by a space so I can keep typing.

The CNWizards version has useful settings such as how many characters have to be 
typed before auto suggestion is invoked.  I like it set to three or four characters.

I personally like it because it saves time when I have type write type names 
like TGenericMediatorClass.  Instead, I type "tge" (or more letters) and the 
list is automatically displayed with the item closest matching what I typed 
already highlighted.  I just hit enter and continue typing.

I think open office (text editor) and Word have this same kind of feature.

Warm Regards,
