Visual Studio IntelliSense Not Working? What To Do.
|Visual Studio IntelliSense is an instance of automatic code completion. Microsoft first introduced it in 1996, but they based the tool on a lot of existing concepts of automatic code completion and syntax checking.
|You can try these following workarround
|If all of the above didn’t work, it’s time to verify some configurations in Visual Studio itself. Go to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> All Languages -> General.
|Make sure “Auto List Members” is checked. Also, make sure “Parameter Information” is checked.
|There are a few other configurations you should check out, too. Still under Text Editor, go to “Basic” and then “IntelliSense.” Make sure you have the following three checked:
|Show completion list after a character is typed
|Highlight matching portions of completion list items
|Show completion item filters
|Now, what if you’ve got all of the options above checked and it still doesn’t work? It will sound silly (again), but here goes: try unchecking all of them and then checking them again. Then click on “OK” and see if everything works fine.
|Still nothing? Well, you’re out of luck then because the next step is pretty extreme.
|The last workaround
Reinstall Visual Studio
|Having to reinstall Visual Studio is definitely a huge bummer. If things get to this point, you’re in for loads of wasted time. Still worth it? In my opinion, definitely.
|Just think about the loss of productivity you’d incur by not using IntelliSense in the first place.
