Hi,

abbrev is using the current modes definition of a word to trigger
autocomplete. I added the following in my .emacs files:

  ;; modifying the syntax table to put ":" in the word constituent
  ;; table. This allows abbrev mode to use colon's as part of expansions
  (modify-syntax-entry ?: "w" c-mode-syntax-table)

  (define-abbrev c-mode-abbrev-table ":hstart" "" 
'tempo-template-c-header-start)

You would have to do the same thing with "(" if you want it to trigger. 
But making these changes will impact any other operations that work on 
"words" in your mode. i.e. delete word would now snack on your "if(" and
not just if.

That's just my understanding, I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong.

Cheers,

Bruce
