Strongly typed resources and intellisense

Posted Tue, Feb 8 2005 22:37 by bill

In Whidbey both Vb.NET and C#  get strongly typed resources.   But the intellisense story is very different

When hovering over a resource named AResourceString in C#, intellisense display the type information and the comments, hence displaying the default value for the resource..

 

 

 

In Vb.NET, this is all you get, just the type:

 

 

So as you can see, editing the C# code is much more friendlier. You can tell instantly that AResourceString defaults to "this shows in C# but not VB".

I thought it was supposed to be the other way around. VB.NET is more user friendly that C#. Talk about a drastic change of events. Pretty soon C# with have E&C and VB.NET won't, they'll just have a command line debugger.
