IntelliRush

  • 2 min to read

IntelliRush is an advanced alternative for the Visual Studio Intellisense. It is more elegant and intuitive to use, and requires fewer keystrokes and less time to find what you need. In addition, it is more helpful and shows more information than the standard Intellisense implementation.

If a selected IntelliRush item represents a method that has several overloads, you can press the Right Arrow key to display a window that contains the list of overloads and allows you to select the required one. Such items are marked with a right arrow sign on the right side.

The additional information on the selected overload is displayed to the right of the appropriate item.
