Python Visual Studio extension doesn't show errors


  • I'm used to use VS to code C++ and Eclipse to code python but lately I have tried VS for both languages.

    I found something very difficult to understand that while VS autocompletes it doesn't warn you about errors before runtime.

    There is no warning regarding non existent variables or methods. I can't believe that VS does not warn about this kind of typical coding issues as it does for C++ code (as every IDE does).

    What am I missing?

    I tested this with VS2013 and VS2015.

  • Hi JhonSnow,

    Thanks for your post.

    I did a test in my side and the behavior is same to yours. It will not give me any warning or error for this code. So I guess this is by design in Visual Studio.

    Since the Python is an extension for Visual Studio. For this kind of issue. I suggest you could ask this question to the Q&A for better support.

    Thanks for your understanding.
