Q: Intellisense

P: n/a
Hiya

I'm using VB.Net and wondering if somebody could tell me how to stop the
Intellisense system doing something rather irritating.

Basically, if I write some code for an object as soon as I write the period
i.e. dot, I get a list of all the members available. Fine! No problem there.
However, suppose, for example, I am writing for the button click event of a
toolbar. When I write

e.

I get a context menu saying that Button is a possiblity - which is what I
want BUT when I press return I get

e.Button()

followed by a carriage return! Unfortunately, in this case, what I want is

e.Button Is tbbAnotherMethod

etc. That is, I don't want the brackets and CR so I have to backspace to get
back to the Button text!

Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance

Geoff

Press <space> if you need a <space>.

If I understand what your after correctly you just need to use the TAB key instead of the RETURN key

Then don't press return, press space. It will still complete and it will
be a more natural method of coding.

I prefer pressing Tab in this situation... ;-).
