Xaml Intellisense

    Question

  • Hi all.

    I have an issue with Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 support for Xaml Intellisense.

    I used to work in Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 and was able to install an extension called "Enable Xaml language for Xamarin.Forms" and it was working perfectly, however in the update 3 I am not able to find this extension anymore. Moreover, I found out that there is another extension "Xamarin.Forms Intellisense" available from MobileEssentials library, but I don't see it in the list of available extensions either...

    Is it a problem with VS 2015 Update 3, and is there a workaround? Or I should wait when they make the extensions available for last update?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Constantin Oleinic,

    “Enable Xaml language for Xamarin.Forms” and "Xamarin.Forms Intellisense" could not be searched in VS market. But I have searched another extension for Xaml Intellisense, I am not sure whether it is helpful for you, please refer to the following screenshot:

    Because these extensions are 3td, so we need to wait for updating in latest VS2015.

    But as far as I know, Intellisense is enabled in VS by default. Please refer to the following screenshot:

    Hope it helpful for you.

    Sincerely,

  • Thanks for your reply.
    It didn't work until I uninstalled VS, all the components and reset user settings, and then reinstall a clean, latest version.

    That's probably because I messed up some settings, so my fault really.

    The Xaml Intellisense Presenter works perfectly so far though.
