I thought it would be cool to rerun some of the items that many people have really liked in the past.  This is the first of the posts I’ll call the Greatest Hits for folks to get exposure to tips they may have missed the first time around.  With that said, on with the tip…

 

Sometimes when you are cranking code you find yourself in a situation where IntelliSense is covering up some code you want to see:

You can easily make it temporarily opaque by pressing and holding the CTRL key:

This way you don't have to completely get rid of IntelliSense, see the code, then bring IntelliSense back.  Just press the CTRL key, get the information you need, and move on.

  • Thanks for the post!  I had forgotten all about that one, and there was a case just yesterday where I could have really used that!  Keep it up!

  • Hey J.M.  :)

    Glad you like the tips!

  • Good one. We can use this tip when one wants to read something that is getting overlapped by the IntelliSense.

  • Superb.
