When an external software uses Apple Events to start Visual Studio for Mac and open files, then files opened using Apple Events have issues with intellisense.
* Download Console.zip attachment
* Open Apple's script editor
* Copy & paste after adjusting the paths to your unzipped Console location:
tell application "Visual Studio"
open POSIX file "/Users/jbevain/tmp/Console/Console.sln"
open POSIX file "/Users/jbevain/tmp/Console/Program.cs"
* Visual Studio will open
* The solution will be opened
* The file Program will be opened
* Note that in the line:
class Program : Library
The type Library is not colorized.
You do not get code completion if you type Library.
You do not get code completion for the method `Library.Do`
When I ran the script the first time, I did indeed get the behavior you describe. When I double-clicked on Program.cs, suddenly the 'Library' token became colorized.
Interestingly, if I close Program.cs and then close Visual Studio and then re-run the script, it opens up Program.cs and after a few seconds, everything is syntactically colorized including the 'Library' token.
Not sure if that helps Mike diagnose the issue at all...
