IntelliSense does not always work RRS feed

  • Question

  • My installation of VS2013 (Express) has an annoying problem with IntelliSense.  Sometimes after adding an element to the XAML, it is not recognized in the code behind without doing a Clean or a Build of the project.  Often, when loading the project, or after some edit, names of XAML elements in my code behind have the red squiggly underline that I can only clear with a Build.

    This behavior is new for VS2013.  Previous editions always immediately recognized newly added elements in XAML.

    Is there some setting that I am missing (perhaps changed to make the designer more performant)?

    ETA: I just reported this using the Visual Studio Feedback Tool (Connect): ID 810539

  • I'm not aware of any specific settings that should affect this. Thanks for reporting this.
