    I agree. As The Viborg said, we need autocomplete on references. The code will be much more readable and will help to code faster.
    An improvement would be even if you implement it like VSC intellisense. They autocomplete all that is already coded.

    Autocomplete in Web Process Designer definitely needs improvement.

    Here is one example.

    When doing this:
    tw.local.complexObject. --> On Ctrl+Space you get autocomplete and you get to choose parameters.

    However, when doing this:
    var cplxObj = tw.local.complexObject;
    cplxObj. --> On Ctrl+Space you don't get autocomplete even though in the Desktop Process Designer this worked.

    That leads to writing more code and harder maintenance of the same.
