Intellisense problems in VS2012 fix, maybe related to productivity and refactoring plugins
If you like me rely a bit on intellisense for productivity you probably hate it when it stops giving you those nice suggestions. This happened to me last week, and I suspect that it had something to do with productivity and refactoring plugins such as Resharper and Just Code. Not saying that the plugins caused it, it might very well be a VS2012 bug - or a combination of both.
Edit/Comment: This seems to be a R# problem when uninstalling or the license expires
Nonetheless, I found out what caused the problem for me and a fix, so I thought that it would be worth sharing. I now have intellisense and have tested with both plugins, even both of them at the same time, and it works. Yey.
This might be why you are having problems with Intellisense, check to see if these boxes are ticked
So, click on the Tools tab and then Options, select Text Editor and whatever language you are using and then General. Under Statement Completion notice if the boxes are TICKED. Mine where just filled, but not ticked. I ticket them first unticked, then ticked, and that’s all I had to do.
The Statement Completetion does exactly what it insinuates, it comes with completion suggestions for the statement you are writing.
The key short cuts are CTRL+ or CTRL+SPACEBAR
