Code Completion's Replacing of Method

Anyone know of a way to turn off the code completion overwriting of the current method?

For example:

Label1.Caption:= 'Junk';

If the cursor is placed after the . character, code completion is invoked, then another method (like Color) is selected, choosing that method will overwrite Caption with Color.

This is good for selecting another method, but if you want to insert something at the beginning of the method *without overwriting* the method, it will always erase the following method. I use with statements a lot and the beginning of a line is often a method.

Suggestions?

I usually put a space after the '.' before then invoking code completion 
on the '.', then delete the space afterwards.

You might want to reconsider that.  'with' statements tend to cause more 
problems than they solve.

I'm using the space trick now, but it's annoying to have to do this. It's not just with "with" statements either. I just had:
ExtractFilename(f)
then put the cursor before the E, invoked code completion to retrieve ChangeFileExt, selected it, then it erased the ExtractFilename call. Not what I wanted. 

(Sigh)

Cannot wrap 'Element''s 'addEventListener' method
On Firefox ( v2 and v3, and probably the earlier versions) it does not seem possible, at least under some circumstances, to extend the 'addEventListener' prototype of the 'Element' object in JS or to extend the prototype of its inheriting objects. This forces JavaScript frameworks that would like to leverage Element's prototype for this (or its inheriting objects) to treat Firefox like IE in this case -- they have to perform an extension operation on every single individual dom element that they need framework-style behavior from. That's a significant performan...

Extending DropDownList's Methods (trying to put javascript code to parent page of the control on certain methods)
