Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Intellisense activation

Hey guys, I have a problem regarding autocompletion and suggestions (via Intellisense) as it's not activating properly (or at least only after a delay of several minutes of not debugging or closing Visual Studio). Does it really take that long to collect Keywords and Methods/Variables of all the classes? Or is that just a bug I'm encountering? (I'm not entirely sure about the workflow of IntelliSense so I can't guess the reason that's causing this problem)

Thanks in advance

Probably need more information on the version of VS you are using. (To follow up, I've only ever done c/c++ in emacs/notepad, you kinda just get used to not having it after awhile)

Oh yeah, I'm using Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate Version 12.0.21005.1 REL on a Windows 7 64bit OS.

I am having the same issue as the OP.

I have the exact same setup (VS 2013 Ult) except for the one difference of me being on Win 8.

I have honestly noticed a lot of strange behavior in VS...Maybe I will try reverting to VS2012.

Hi, not sure if that's what you mean, but after adding new class try the following:

  • Build solution

  • Close VS

  • In the editor File->Refresh VS Project

  • File->Open VS

  • Give it 5-10 seconds to rescan files

I would recommend you guys Visual Assist. It is much much faster than Intellisense.

Works pretty good! :D

Highly recommend VAX (Visual Assist X) too. It's way better than Intellisence for an Unreal Project and there's a lot of cool feature too.

If you are serious about developing for UE4, buy VAX! There's also a trial version of 30 days if you need convincing. Also : deactivate Intellisence once you have VAX, Visual Studio will fell much better!
