Visual Assist is a plug-in by Whole Tomato Software for Microsoft Visual Studio. Visual Assist enhances IntelliSense and syntax highlighting, improving IDE features related to navigation, refactoring, code generation and coding assistance. It offers code suggestions, provides refactoring commands, and includes spell checking support for comments. It can also detect basic syntax mistakes such as use of undeclared variables.
Visual Assist reduces application development time with key new features and improvements to existing features in Visual Studio, allowing you to:
Open any file (Shift+Alt+O)
Find and open any file in your solution using a simple dialog and a few search tokens.
Find any symbol (Shift+Alt+S)
In a dialog that supports similar filtering, find any symbol in your solution.
Go to implementation (Alt+G)
Use Visual Assist to find more definitions and declarations than built-in Intellisense.
Go to anything related (Shift+Alt+G)
The big brother of Alt+G can take you just about anywhere related to the current symbol.
Open corresponding file (Alt+O)
