Losing the tab key in VS.NET

  • 15 years ago

    An example:
    Type "MessageBox." then "Show" is the default method in the intellisense so to add it press tab.

    Has anyone heard of any reason that the tab key wouldn't work in VS.NET. Someone has emailed me asking this question. Their VS.NET version is 7.1.3088 and they only have VC# and VJ# installed. I think their version is also Spanish.

    is this vs 2003 or the 2005 version?

    in vs 2005 theres an option in tools>options>texteditor>c#>intellisense

    which tick box is commited by pressing the space bar, work playing with that, the above is also the same in vs 2003. but apart from that i cant recreate the problem sorry

    I said it was version 7.1.3088 which is 2003; 2005 is 8.0.

    I am also unable to recreate the problem. I got the guy to use the reset intellisense in the options and he said it worked but now it is back to not working.

    I guess there mustn't be ant known issues because i have already done a search
