I opened up a dub generated VS project. Went to mess with testing stuff. No intellisense.

I decided to install MonoD. intellisense! Same code, same object, only difference is after I hit the ., MonoD shows me something, VD doesn't!

Everything is a rather new install.

Does Visual D have some settings for intelligent, simply not support it, or are there certain hoops that have to be jumped through to get it to work?

Visual D and MonoD use the same semantic engine for intellisense. There might be some small differences in integration quality, though.

Check the "Language Options" accessible through the Visual D menu: you might have to change the intellisense trigger from "Ctrl-Space" to writing ".".

From a C# programmer's view that's not IntelliSense - that's a bad joke. Ideally IntelliSense would actually trigger while typing!

I wish there were one IDE support this. Does anybody know?

You can enable this mode in Visual D by selecting to show expansions when "writing an identifier".

Another question: Do you know how to get code snippets work (ctor, ... ) do not show up in IntelliSense (and do not work when pressing Tab+Tab either)?

Code snippets are usually invoked by Ctrl-K,Ctrl-X. Unfortunately it seems to be broken is VS2015 (works in VS2013).

You can assign a shortcut to Edit.InvokeSnippetFromShortcut, this seems to work in both VS versions. You can add your own snippets with the snippet manager (usually invoked by Ctrl-K,Ctrl-B).

Intellisense for constructors currently does not work too well, these are mapped to member function __ctor internally. This needs to be translated somehow.

Or do you mean that the snippets should be part of the completion list? Sounds reasonable...

Yep, I would have expected them to be in the completion list.

You can now find code snippets added to the completion list in https://github.com/dlang/visuald/releases/tag/v0.44-rc2
