Word Completion


Keyboard:  CTRL + SPACE; ALT + RIGHT ARROW
Menu:  Edit –> IntelliSense –> Complete Word
Command:  Edit.CompleteWord
Versions:  2008,2010
Published:  5/31/2010
Code:  vstipEdit0065

 

So this one is very popular and one of the core skills to use in Visual Studio.  Let’s say you are typing and you have this:

clip_image002

 

You can press CTRL + SPACE or ALT + RIGHT ARROW to complete the word like this:

clip_image004

 

This only works if there are no other possible matches that could happen.  If, for example, you had something like this:

clip_image006

 

And pressed CTRL + SPACE or ALT + RIGHT ARROW to complete the word then you would just get Statement Completion:

clip_image008

    I have a problem I use MS Visual C++ 2010 and Word Completion List doesn't appear.

    Do you know some solution ?

    Unfortunately IntelliSense features like this were removed in VS2010 but the good news is they are back in the next version of Visual Studio.
