Complete Word (IntelliSense)

Complete Word (IntelliSense)

The Microsoft IntelliSense Complete Word option types the rest of a variable, command, or function name once you have entered enough characters to uniquely identify the term.

There are four ways to invoke the Complete Word feature:

  • On the Edit menu, point to IntelliSense, and then click Complete Word.


  • Right-click the text editor, and click Complete Word.

  • Click the Complete Word button on the Text Editor toolbar.

If what you have typed has more than one possible match, invoke Complete Word to display a list of possible matches, which you can then use to find the term and insert it into your code.
