I think IDLE need this. This is a unattached module.
Locate this module on idlelib directory, import it in, made it associate with "text" 
property. OK, it will work.

For me it works well.
Have a good day,
Jerry King

The module is undocumented, which isn't acceptable.

What functionality does this add to IDLE?

user_id=1382613 is a IDLE module that extends Listbox and 
Scrollbar controls with autocompletion capabilities. 

Although the IDLE provides rich foundation for Python 
application developers, it doesn't provide any built-in 
autocompletion support! 

AutoComplete module fills the gap by bringing 
autocompletion capabilities to IDLE. Users of IDLE can 
enjoy the same autocomplete functionality they already 
know from Pythonwin.

This module is simple and works, but IDLE already has an
auto-completion module! It is in Python's SVN and will be
part of Python2.5.

The module posted here is extremely naïve and lacking
compared to the existing auto-completion module.

For example, it catches events instead of the Text widget
and inserts characters directly into it to compensate for
this. The MultiCall module on which the existing
auto-completion module is built it a much better solution.

Given that IDLE now has auto-completion, I'm rejecting this patch as out-of-date.
jerrykingking, if you would still like to contribute some of it, please submit a new patch. Make sure you address the issues that have been mentioned by the reviewers.

I had left this open because Jerry King's patch has capability that the
current implementation lacks.  As I recollect, it will autocomplete even
if the code has not yet been run.  If he could submit a new patch against
the current implementation, that would be great.
