Test case:

  1. Open query editor
  2. Type sel
  3. Wait

Expected result:

Autocomplete suggests SELECT.

Actual result:

Autocomplete suggests select.


The SQLite documentation for interpreting SQL uses uppercase keywords. So we can assume that is the preferred style.

Thanks @fulldecent. This seems like a duplicate of #1238. 😄

Automatic completion of SQL keywords in upper case
Added a new setting for completing the SQL keywords in upper case (default
being true).

Scintilla setAutoCompletionCaseSensitivity is set to false. Otherwise the
completion is only done in lowercase when both case versions are added,
or if only upper case version is added, writing lower case letters does
not use the upper case version of the word in the completion list. This
change doesn't have apparently any downside, since SQL is actually case

Consequently the list of keywords is only added in one of the two letter
case versions, depending on the new setting value.

The new preference check-box is only enabled when the auto-complete
check-box is checked.

See issues #1238 and #1287.
