VS Code - Broken/Lacking intellisense for propertynames

Is there a known reason why propertynames related auto-completion doesn’t work in Julia VS Code?

I tested things on Pluto, and it works fine (see video).

You should be able to reproduce the thing with the Cobweb package (the h function has defined HTML tags as propertynames).

Is this something known, or am I doing something wrong? (I hope it is my fault - because then I am closer to the fix).

After some additional digging I encountered this issue.

The Julia: Runtime Completions is disabled by default in the VS Code extension.

Enabling it helped. This is better than nothing (and will work great especially when doing fast exploratory work). I’m looking forward on how LanguageServer.jl will evolve.
