Screenshot of working and non-working code hinting
Sometimes Monodevelop can properly provide code hints, other times it cannot.
I have been unable to determine what the conditions are for when it fails to provide a hint, as it appears random. Occasionally it works on otherwise empty lines, sometimes it does not.
In the screenshot of where it doesn't work, when I went to take the screenshot I managed to hit tab or enter, or something and Monodevelop automatically filled in "mousePosition" despite there having been no code hints available, which I had to undo in order to make the screenshot (and it still had no hints).
The only .NET language for which upstream MonoDevelop has code completion is C#.
