I also can't see "IsNullOrEmpty" appear in the code completion window on a string variable.
Comment 2 Joseph Hanna 2014-05-26 06:44:47 UTC
Please scratch my last comment re "IsNullOrEmpty"

I have checked this issue with following builds:
X.S 5.0 (Build 876)
Git revision: 892675cba83be2d00954bfdf22dd8a29e6a47502
Mono 3.4.0

I am unable to reproduce this issue. I am getting Parameter list when typing even when Go to Edit->Show Parameter List. This is he screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/vIZw4iSmGI0A

@Joseph, Could you please provide me screencast of the problem which you are facing?
Comment 4 Mike Krüger 2014-05-26 23:34:46 UTC
Works for me as well.

I assume that the 'using System.Diagnostics;' was missing. There isn't much that could prevent that feature from working.
