ctrl+J

Im a newbie to resharper and just installed the latest release. Before resharper, i could place my cursor on an already completed member and then press ctrlj on the keyboard and it would pull up intellisense for me. Now in life after the resharper installation, if i press ctrlj on a completed member, a resharper popup comes up and it says "No Suggestions".

What is this and where is my intellisense?

Thanks for any help.

Hello jnapier,

It's ReSharper Live Template popup. If you try it in place where statement
is expected, e.g. on a new line after semicolon, you'll see its power. On
the other hand, it is no longer connected to intellisense. If you wish your
Ctrl-J key back, you can go to Tools, Options, Keyboard and map it to Edit.CompleteWord.


However, ReSharper provides greater intellisense with Ctrl-Space (complete
symbol), Ctrl-Alt-Space (complete type name) and Ctrl-Shift-Space (smart
complete). May be you want to try these features? :)

Sincerely,

jnapier, as a R# newbie you will find that R# remaps quite a few VS shortcuts to have new meaning.

I remember finding this very frustrating at first. However, as a long time user of the product I would strongly recommend that you stick with the new R# shortcuts and forget the old VS ways!

Here's some good stuff:
R# has three ways of doing Intellisense: http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/features/codeAssistance.html
R# listing of shortcut keys: http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/documentation/ReSharper25DefaultKeymap.pdf
Bread and butter Resharper: http://agile.codebetter.com/blogs/jeffrey.palermo/archive/2006/08/02/BreadAndButterResharper.aspx

Also, to get the parameter information of a method/property, type Ctrl+P. Now that is a good remapping. Who needs to print code that often?

You might also want to try Ctrl+Q when the cursor is on a method or property.

For R#3 EAP, try CtrlShiftG for Goto on steroids.

All this stuff really makes VS intellisense look quite poor!
