When i try to expnad with TAB in terminal mode everything works fine , but when i try to do it in the graphical emacs the completation disappear as the pop up menu. I try to map "ac-expand" to RET and every works fine, i can't find a way to make it work with TAB.

I also have this issue.

I had this issue in emacs 23. I managed to bypass it with the following code in my init file:

(defun complete-or-newline (arg)
(if (and
(or (bobp) (= ?w (char-syntax (char-before))))
(or (eobp) (not (= ?w (char-syntax (char-after))))))

However, I've recently updated to emacs24. In emacs 24 the issue has returned and the above code snippet doesn't help.

@jbeja @sunilw I can't reproduce this problem. ac-expand works fine graphical mode and terminal mode.
Please show us your configuration and Emacs version and auto-complete version
if you still have this problem.
