I tried to ctrl+space on where while typing sql query. It doesn;t work. Is there anyway to fix it? Thanks

How to repeat:
Do any select, until typing where, try ctrl+space. It won't work. No suggestion shown after try to show suggestion.

Suggested fix:
Please show any auto complete. Thanks

Hello Benyamin Limanto,

Thank you for the bug report.
Confirmed on various instance that autocomplete is working perfectly.
Auto-complete is enabled (and triggered) by default, and might have been disabled by un-checking Preferences->SQL Editor->Automatically Start Code Completion. Please enable it by checking and should work again.

Not working. Is mysql workbench maybe depends on java? or not? 
after tick and untick and tick again dan restart the app no autocomplete shown. Or maybe is there any ways to clean the configuration file? Thanks

Hello Benyamin Limanto,

Thank you for the feedback.
Verified this behavior on MySQL Workbench in 8.0.12 version.

Is there any work around for now? Or maybe I could download the old version of it?

Thank You Benyamin Limanto. I was encountering the same issue and downgraded.

I upgraded from 6.3.10 to 8.0.12 in August, auto-complete did not work.  Uninstalled and went back to 6.3.10.  I tried the upgrade again today (8.0.13 10/24/2018), issue persists.  Going back to 6.3.10.  It is such an pain to have to type all of field names when building queries.  The table names do auto complete and non-field items will be offered after you type WHERE, but not the list of table fields.

Column name auto-complete fails to work in 8.0.12 and 8.0.13.  The simplest example is to type:

SELECT * from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES where t(ctrl-spc):

The suggested completions are Functions, not Columns
    TIME, TIMESTAMP ... tan() ... truncate()

Anything new with issue? I keep hitting ctrl+space and it won't show any table columns.

Is there a rough time schedule when this bug will be fixed?

I've just updated to MySQL Workbench 8.0.15 and the auto-complete issue is still present.

Posted by developer:
Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 8.0.16 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The code auto-completion feature in the query editor did not provide the
expected behavior.

Thank you for the bug report.
