Your computer might show different names or locations for some of the Visual Studio user interface elements in the following instructions. The Visual Studio edition that you have and the settings that you use determine these elements. For more information, see Personalizing the IDE.
The IntelliSense page contains the following sections:
When this check box is selected, you have the option to select the Show errors as warning check box.
For Web projects, remote files referenced in your project are downloaded by default.
You can use these options to change the behavior of IntelliSense statement completion.
Reference groups This option specifies the reference group type. Three reference groups are supported:
Implicit (Web), for HTML5 projects. Files included in this group are in scope for every .js file opened in the Code Editor for these project types.
Dedicated worker reference groups, for HTML5 Web Workers. Files specified in this group are in scope for .js files that have an explicit reference to a dedicated worker reference group.
Included files This option specifies the order in which files are loaded into the context of the language service. You can configure the order by using the Remove, Move Up, and Move Down buttons. For IntelliSense to work correctly, a file that is dependent on another must be loaded after the other file.
If an object is defined unconditionally in two or more implicit references, the last reference in this list will be used to define the object.
Add a reference to the group This option provides a way to add additional IntelliSense .js files by browsing to the appropriate files.
