  • Question

  • Here is a code which can be built with no problem: button.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;

    while after I type the code till "button.Visibility = Visibility.", there will be an assitant window pop up from the mouse location, while I cannot find "Collasped" in the pop up window, it only shows "Compare To", "Equals", "GetHashCode", "GetType", "GetTypeCode", "HasFlag", "ToString".

  • Howdy,

    Yes that is correct - the intellisense is not quite boiler plate in the Expression Blend environment. If you are intending on doing anything more then code what you already know to be correct, my advice is to use Visual Studio to be your code editor.

    In case you are not aware, you can switch it on by selecting the Tools menu -> Options -> Project and then tick the third option down.
