Just in case you ever need to do this.... Go to Tools–Options–Text Editor–All Languages–General and uncheck Auto List Members and Parameter Information. If you just want to disable IntelliSense by default for a particular language, go to the Text Editor––General option page and set the behavior there.



Note that the IntelliSense commands themselves are not disabled, meaning you can still invoke IntelliSense via the keyboard shortcut or a toolbar button.

Happy Programming! =)

It's all about the simple things in life. Yep, you can resize the statement completion dialog box from any direction.



A couple of things to note:
  • Max height is limited to one-third of the screen size.
  • Although width is resizable, only height is persisted.


Happy Programming! =)
