The VB team has made some nice improvements to intellisense
that make it much easier to navigate through APIs.
Intellisense completion now automatically filters the member
list available as you type to help you better pinpoint the API you are
looking for. For example, if in an ASP.NET code-behind page you type
"R" it will show the full list of types and members available (with
the selection starting in the "R" list):
When you type the second character of what you
are looking for (in this case "e"), VB will automatically filter to
only show those types that start with "Re" and highlight the most
When you type the "s" it filters the
list even further:
When you type "p" it filters down to just the one
I find this cleaner and more intuitive than the previous
model that always showed everything in the drop-down.
