ReSharper | Options | Environment | IntelliSense | Completion Characters

On this page of ReSharper options, you can set whether you want ReSharper to commit the selected completion item on pressing Space or any non-alphanumeric character. Also, you can define how the Enter and the Tab keys behave on the item selected in the completion list: the two selectors, Enter Key and Tab Key let you choose one of the following behavior options:

  • Inserts - inserts the item without replacing the text after the caret.
  • Replaces - replaces the text after the caret with the item.

Visual Studio's own language-specific completion options are also taken into account. For more information, seeConfiguring Code Completion.

Item Description

Note

ReSharper's settings are saved in settings layers that enable you to have different settings for different solutions as well as to share your settings with your team. To learn more, study the Managing and Sharing Options section.
