Join Reynald Adolphe for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the improved syntax IntelliSense, part of C# 6.0 First Look.
As I mentioned, Visual Studio has been rebuilt…from the ground up, and while it looks similar to 2013,…you'll discover both large and small,…yet significant, changes.…One small change is with the IntelliSense.…Here I have the solution at CS6_FirstLook open.…Let's double-click on 'Program'.…Notice how when you hover over variables,…we have color on the syntax to make it easier…on the eyes when looking at key words.…
Also, outlining is displayed with rich semantics…highlighting by hovering.…This was all grey text before.…If we jump up to the using directives,…you'll notice the ones that are not reference are faded.…While these seem like small changes,…when working in the IDE for hours,…you'll come to appreciate how much easier it is…to be reminded of unused references you can clean up,…or find key classes and properties that jump out…when skimming through outlying texts.…
Now let's look at a more prominent feature…to assist in cleaning up syntax.…
