Some Visual Studio Keyboard Shortcuts (Windows and Mac)

The foundation of coding is to problem solve in an efficient manner. Type the fewest lines of code to accomplish the most amount of work is essentially every software developer’s mindset. It’s not about being lazy, but rather about being efficient. As a programming student, I wish someone had taught me about the neat little tricks my instructors and coaches use to code more efficiently.

Here are some of the easy shortcuts I learned to improve my experience with visual studio code:

[Guest post] Learn C# with Visual Studio, Visual Studio for Mac, and Unity

UPDATE: The book giveaway challenge is complete. We will be announcing winners on the Visual Studio blog within the next week. Thank you for your submissions!

Visual Studio is an amazing development tool. But Visual Studio and Visual Studio for Mac are more than just intuitive, state-of-the-art development environments. They’re also remarkably powerful learning and exploration tools, with features to help you create and understand your code. I love teaching and learning about C## with Visual Studio. That’s why my co-author, Jenny Greene, and I put Visual Studio and Visual Studio for Mac right at the center of our latest book, _Head First C# _(4th edition), published by O’Reilly Media. _Head First C# _incorporates Visual Studio directly in the learning. combining Visual Studio with the unique and innovative “brain-friendly” Head First approach to teaching helps us make learning C## easier and more fun for our readers.

Arranging Columns in Visual Studio Windows

Admittedly, the tool window I use most in Visual Studio is the Error List (I probably use it even more than I use Solution Explorer). By and large it meets my needs but it is customizable for those occasions when it does not.

For example, the default Error List display includes a Suppression State column that I hardly ever use. If you don’t use it either, you can get rid of it, making more room for the columns you do want (to be more specific: the Description column). All you have to do is right-click on any of the column headers in the Error List and pick Show Columns from the pop-up menu. That will give you a menu of available columns with the currently displayed columns checked off. Clicking on any column in the menu will add the column to the display (if the column isn’t currently checked) or remove the column (if it is checked). I don’t find the Code column all that useful, either, so I got rid of it also, but that might just be crazy talk as far as you’re concerned.

When the Watch Window in Visual Studio Doesn't Update

While debugging in Visual Studio, you may notice, when you check some value in the Watch window, one of two icons beside your data. You may get one or the other of a circle with two wavy lines inside of it or the standard refresh icon of two curved arrows chasing each other. Either icon indicates that the data being displayed in the Watch window isn’t up to date.

There are two reasons for these icons appearing: Either there’s been a problem in fetching the data (e.g. a timeout) or Visual Studio is concerned that evaluating the expression may result in some side-effects that will make debugging more difficult for you.

It’s lovely that you get that warning but, if you’ve noticed the icons then it’s probably because you’re checking the value and, if you’re checking the value then it’s probably because you need that value. Clicking the icon will force Visual Studio to make another attempt at giving you the latest version of the data you want.

If you can’t get the data you want (or if it turns out that Visual Studio was right and re-evaluating the expression really did make your life more difficult) then your best option is to set a breakpoint a line or two earlier and re-run your test.
