Description Joseph Hanna 2012-05-03 16:55:38 UTC
Description of Problem:
The code completion window does not appear (automatically nor manually) when consuming a .NET 2.0 Web Service class.  I haven't tried WCF as I don't have any to try.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Add a Web Reference (.NET 2.0 framework).  
2. Declare a variable to the web service and instantiate it.
3. Type the variable name followed by a period and the code completion window does not appear. Even using the menu option and keyboard shortcuts do not make the window appear. 

Actual Results:
No code completion window after typing the period for a web service object.  Also tried the menu options and keyboard shortcuts for code completion and nothing happens.

Expected Results:
Code completion window pops up like any other class/object.

How often does this happen? 
All of the time.

Additional Information:

Thanks guys!

Hi Mike,

Reference.cs is automatically generated by the Web Service wizard.  Everything works as it should (as as it does in Visual Studio) - the object can be referenced and the project builds and runs successfully.  It is just that the Code Completion Window does not appear for Web Service objects and so the methods and properties of the object are not known for their types and parameters as you are coding against it.

This is no longer a problem in XS 4.0.12.  I am happy to close the bug.
