This is the third time this has happened this year and usually a full re-install is required to get it functioning again. This particular time this will not even work.

Intellisense has completely stopped working in ALL project types (C#) inside of Visual Studio. All of the previous methods of fixing it have not worked. Here is what has been tried already:

  • Deleted all of the obj and bin directories and recompiled the solution.
  • Cleared out the VSWebCache directory in Documents and Settings\%Username%\
  • Cleared out the Temporary ASP.Net Directory under the Windows\Microsoft.Net\%Version Number%\ folder

There are no syntax errors listed in the solution and it compiles with no errors and no warnings.

Unfortunately this occurs at a time when I need to get the project completed.

All help and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Cris,

I haven't heard of this problem before, but it obviously sounds pretty bad. Are you using any add-ins, or is this a vanilla install of VSTS 2005 When you say IntelliSense has stopped working, what exactly does that mean Do you get colorization for .cs files If you do get colorization, do types get colorized, or just keywords Do completion lists ever appear

Thanks,

Oohh I got the same problem exactly this moment. Restared my computer didn't work.
I got this bug after VS Hanged in a debug mode. I killed the proccess and than VS .Net
will not show any intellisence...

When I hadd controls to my aspx page with an Ide, the codebehind can Identify the id by start typing it and press ctrl-space.
But it will not show any intelisene box, and ii I type a method that exist it says it can't use this method, it does not exist.
And I know it does.

So I have two problems right now.

1... Intellisence not working (got colors i code though)
2... My codebehind no longer get knowledge about my controls...

Why is that Maybe it's time to add a Reset VS .Net to default a feature that clear cache, re-register addins or settings that
are turned off etc... It's so boring to re-install Vs .Net and than add SP1... 2-3h installation there is :(

So how can I fix this strange bugg

Best Johan N2

Hi,

It works for me in .aspx pages, but not in .ascx or .asmx.

It is weird, I appreciate in advance any help.

Thanks,
