ITX Design Studio should show functions while doing the mapping in ITX window the moment we start typing the function.

Right now, while doing the mapping, for every function we want to use we have to manually type that function regardless of the length of that function and this causes issues if even one character is wrong or absent in the function.


What I want is that when we will type the code in the mapping window then ITXA should show all the functions and details of that functions like the normal Mapping happens in other mapping tools like Altova, IntellIj etc.


Example: I want to write a code which requires a function PRESENT then instead of typing the full function manually. System should be smart enough that the moment I type P, it should show all the ITXA functions starting with P along with want every function does and how to use that function and if I want to type anything then I should just type the whole word and system should also accept it.

For more details refer to the attached word document.

    Due to the drag n drop nature of the mapping rules where users are dragging in data items, functions, and typing in their own functional map names auto complete would not be helpful.
