[Solved] Xcode autocomplete: is it possible to not skip parameters of optional type by default?

Suppose I have a struct Foo:

struct Foo {
    var x: Int
    var y: Int?

When I create an instance in the code, Xcode skips the y parameter by default when doing auto-completion. To include all parameters, I need to press "Option-Enter" instead.

I find this behavior can easily lead one to miss parameters when modifying a large amount of code. I wonder if there is some setting in Xcode to change the behavior? I googled but found nothing. It would also help if there is a third-party tool to list the function calls that don't contain complete parameters.

(Note: an obvious approach is to not specify default value for parameters of optional type, but I'd like to use the synthesized init() in the above case).

You may take advantage of the peculiar feature that Int? and Optional<Int> are treated differently:

struct Foo {
    var x: Int
    var y: Optional<Int>

But then you'd need to always specify "y".

I'm not aware of Xcode setting to flip its "Option-Enter" autocomplete behaviour.


Thank you. I read about their difference in the forum a few days ago, but would never think of this approach if you didn't mention it.

That's what I thought.
