Microsoft implemented the intelligent hint feature for two languages ​​— TypeScript / JavaScript in Visual Studio Code and C ++ in Visual Studio. As the code is written, the IntelliCode extension displays the command completion options not in alphabetical order, but depending on the context. Such tips in the general list are marked with asterisks.

The extension is available in the Visual Studio Code Extensions Store, as well as in the Extensions tab of the text editor. After installation, no action is required - it is enough just to work in the editor, and the system itself will begin to offer hints.

According to the creators, the extension will also help navigate the JS libraries, regardless of the direction of development: writing the client side of the code using React, Angular or Vue or server side with Node.js or Express.

In Visual Studio 2019, the IntelliCode extension for C ++ development is available in the marketplace.

The creators of the extension promise that soon IntelliCode will learn from its own developer code. So far, smart tips are the result of analyzing a large array of foreign projects.

In addition, the team is considering adding IntelliCode support for C ++ to VS Code.

Microsoft introduced IntelliCode at Build 2018 as a system that simplifies and speeds up code generation by displaying the most relevant prompts. In May 2018, the feature was only available in Visual Studio 2017 for C #, but after a couple of months, IntelliCode support for Python appeared in Visual Studio Code.
