Hey all, I've made my way back into the MV community after some years away (long story).

I've been using the MV Basic extension (publisher MV Extensions) for VSCode and I'm wondering if there is a way to make the autocomplete use uppercase?  

Much of the work I'm doing requires uppercase code.  Thanks.

Hi John. Try this.

Look for a file named MvLanguage.json in the folder C:\Users\your_username\.vscode\extensions\mvextensions.mvbasic-2.1.3\Syntaxes\
You can modify each key to uppercase to satisfy your needs. 
For instance:

       {
            "key": "Writev",      <- change to WRITEV
            "icon": 14,
            "documentation": "The WRITEV statement writes an attribute to file using the specified key and attribute number. The file must be opened before the WRITE statement can be used. If an error occurs the ON ERROR clause is executed",
            "detail": "WRITEV record ON filevariable , key , attribute {ON ERROR}"
         },

Don't forget to backup the original file!!!!

Let me know if this helps you.

Regards.
Osvaldo

You forgot to add your blood type.

Why would you post this much personal information in a public forum?

If I recall correctly, I had the same issue when I first started using MV Extensions.

I believe that you only need to update your VS Code preferences with "MVBasic.useCamelCase": false

I'm sure you don't have to edit the syntax file.  That would take forever, and be lost each time MV Extensions was updated.

This seems to have worked.  Thank you.  Much easier.
