drop down feature

Somewhat, depending on the IDE you choose, but not really.  Search the
newsgroup (or use google) to find a thread titled "'Intellisense'
possible for Python?" started (by me) on Dec 18, 2002.  It discusses why
this isn't really possible with Python (short version: dynamic typing
doesn't allow them to do this).   Generally, the interactive
interepreter windows support this better than the editors.  Pat O'Brien
did some work on improving this in the PyAlaCarte series of editors, but
I've not been able to get it working completely, and he seems to not be
doing any additional work on it at this time.  As someone who also came
from VB, support for intellisense-type capabilities would be the largest
practical improvement that could be made to ease-of-use & adoption of
Python.  I think that it's hard for those folks who haven't benefited
from it to understand how nice it really is.  Good luck,

Does python 2.2 has a drop down feature like VB does so that you can
list of methods and variables associate with that particular class?  If
it does, how do I turn it on?

Thx.
