Complete Word

Type the first few letters of the name, and then press ALT+RIGHT ARROW or CTRL+SPACEBAR.

When a context list is displayed for an object in Visual Basic, you can display the global list by invoking Complete Word (ALT+RIGHT ARROW).

[C++]

Type the first few letters of the name, and then press ALT+RIGHT ARROW or CTRL+SPACEBAR.

If what you have typed has more than one possible match or no match at all, then invoke Complete Word to display the Members list, which you can then use to find the term and insert it into your code. See List Members for more information.

You can invoke the Complete Word feature as follows:

  • On the Edit menu, click IntelliSense, and then click Complete Word.
  • Use the ALT+RIGHT ARROW keyboard shortcut.
  • Right-click the text editor and click Complete Word from the shortcut menu.
  • Select the Complete Word toolbar button from the Text Editor toolbar.
