Description Jeremy Kolb 2014-12-22 10:56:18 UTC
The designer in VS doesn't autocomplete.  For instance if I am in a <Button /> and I type "android:i" it will autocomplete "android:id" in Xamarin Studio but NOT Visual Studio.
Comment 1 Jeremy Kolb 2014-12-22 11:10:05 UTC
This is for axml files.
Comment 2 Sunil Kumar 2014-12-23 11:17:25 UTC
As for now this feature is not implemented in VS. So I am marking it as enhancement.
Comment 3 Jeremy Kolb 2015-03-25 10:57:30 UTC
It SHOULD be implemented in VS.  If you can have auto-completion for xaml then you should have auto-completion for axml.
Comment 4 Jeremy Kolb 2015-10-07 14:54:51 UTC
Is this fixed in 6.0?
Comment 5 Jeremy Kolb 2016-03-21 19:39:02 UTC
This KILLS productivity.  Can someone please look at it?
Comment 6 Jose Gallardo 2016-03-29 22:40:53 UTC
This feature is part of Xamarin VS 4.1 which is already in Preview.

Please try our current Alpha, which includes an early version of auto-completion for .axml files from the Source Tab in Visual Studio (XVS

Hope this addresses the issue.
