IntelliSense is a general term for various code editing features including:

  • Code completion
  • Parameter info
  • Quick info
  • Member lists

IntelliSense features are sometimes called by other names such as "code completion", "content assist", and "code hinting."

IntelliSense will show up on certain trigger characters. You can also explicitly call up IntelliSense with ctrl + ,

Visual Studio Code IntelliSense is provided for JavaScript, TypeScript, JSON, HTML, CSS, SCSS, and Less out of the box.

There are extensions in the Marketplace to add support for more languages like PHP, Dart, Go, Ruby, and Python.
