IntelliAssist Visual Studio 2005

Hi there,

please allow me a quick question !!

I am really interrested in Resharper but I can't find any information
about intelliassist in Visual Studio 2005.

I really love Visual Assist with that "filtering" capabilitie in the
intelliassist !! ( e.g. show just fields and more )

Will this be implemented in Resharper somewhere in the future ??


Greetings

Yes, I've often missed this feature myself. It happens from time to time
that the list contains quite a few items, and going through the list to
see, for instance, what properties the class contains, would be far
easier if it was possible to filter the list.

Anyone else missing this feature?

Yeah, I think I even suggested something like this in the past. Some
objects have a LOT of methods, properties, events, etc., and it'd be nice if
there was a keystroke or something like looking at the 'intellisense' list
to filter out the things you know you're not interested in (keystrokes for
show fields only, show properties only, show methods only, show everything).
Intellisense is awesome when you know what you want to do, and it just helps
with the typing. But frequently it gets used as "documentation", when
you're not sure what method to call, and you want to poke around and see
what's available, and a filtering ability would really help that.

Hello Paul,

This is actually different use-case. Instead of adding complexity to code
completion, which should be fast and simple, it may worth to add something
like "completion dialog", which is triggered by different shortcut. This
dialog would show same list as completion (i.e. what is possible at the place
of caret), but allow advanced navigation, grouping, searching and filtering.
If user selects something in dialog and hits ENTER, it is placed in the code,
like normal completion.

Just and idea, though.

Sincerely,
Ilya Ryzhenkov

I would be infinitely pleased if the intellisense in ReSharper is
significantly more intelligent about the context in which types are used.
When performing assignments to an enumerated value, for example, it should
know the enumerated type and restrict the list (by default) to just those
enumeration types. When typing an attribute above a class, method, property,
or field, it should restrict the list to just attributes. It would be nice
to restrict the list to attributes applicable in that specific context, but
showing only attributes is infinitely better than wading through a pile of
classes and properties that are irrelevant. The same goes for throwing an
exception. I can't throw new SecurityPermissionAttribute(), so it shouldn't
be in the intellisense.

These are just quick examples, but having some form of contextual
intellisense would make the product much more useful. Of course, it's
already a tool on my "must have or I don't code" list. :)

or properties that return that enumeration type
or methods that ...
or objectsof classes that ...
or classes that have static memebrs that ...
or classes that have visible nested classes that ...
or namespaces that contain classes that ...

In short, restricting the list is not so easy. But to help you:
ctrlshiftspace does the thing

When typing an attribute above a class, method, property, or field, it
should restrict the list to just attributes. It would be nice to restrict
the list to attributes applicable in that specific context, but showing
only attributes is infinitely better than wading through a pile of classes
and properties that are irrelevant.


or namespaces that contain attributes ..
or namespaces that contain other namepaces that ... (recursive)
or classes that contain visible nested attributes ...
etc

Again: ctrlshiftspace does the thing

The same goes for throwing an exception. I can't throw new
SecurityPermissionAttribute(), so it shouldn't be in the intellisense.


But you can throw existing exceptions. Thus if you have classes that contain
properties or methods that return an exception type you can say e.g. "throw
myObject.LastException"

After typing throw new however, ctrlshiftspace does the thing

Erwin

Definitely a winner for me. The number of times I only want to see the events...

This request has appeared on the forums fairly regularly and it has always received the "not planned" response.

This reply chain is beginning to look fairly impressive. How about a JIRA item for this feature and get the R# community to vote for it?

You are right, this is often requested feature. I've just planned the corresponding
JIRA issue for 3.0 and I hope we'll be able to implement it.
