#294 – Intellisense Is Also Available in the XAML Editor

In Visual Studio, Intellisense works in not only the code editor, but also the XAML editor.  As you being typing an element name, for example, Intellisense will display a window listing possible elements.

If you press TAB while an element is highlighted, Intellisense will insert the entire element name into the XAML.

As you continue typing, Intellisense will display a list of possible attributes that are appropriate for the current element.

Again, you can press TAB to insert the complete attribute name.  Intellisense will also add an equals (=) sign and a pair of quotation (“) marks.

Intellisense is also available when entering binding expressions.
