24. Interactive Minibuffer Completion

Loading this package implements a more fine-grained minibuffer completion feedback scheme. Prospective completions are concisely indicated within the minibuffer itself, with each successive keystroke.

See icomplete-completions docstring for a description of the icomplete display format.

See the icomplete-minibuffer-setup-hook docstring for a means to customize icomplete setup for interoperation with other minibuffer-oriented packages.

To activate icomplete mode, load the package and use the icomplete-mode function. You can subsequently deactivate it by invoking the function icomplete-mode with a negative prefix-arg (C-U -1 ESC-x icomplete-mode). Also, you can prevent activation of the mode during package load by first setting the variable icomplete-mode to nil. Icompletion can be enabled any time after the package is loaded by invoking icomplete-mode without a prefix arg.

To configure this package, type:

  M-x customize-group RET icomplete RET
