Develop

Save time with new features:


 

Improved search

Formerly known as Quick Launch, our new search experience is faster and more effective. Now, search results appear dynamically as you type. And, search results can often include keyboard shortcuts for commands, so that you can more easily memorise them for future use.

The new fuzzy search logic will find anything you need, regardless of typos. So, whether you're looking for commands, settings, documentation, or other useful things, the new search feature makes it easier to find what you're looking for.

Refactorings

New C# refactorings make it easier to organise your code. Simply invoke the refactorings by pressing Ctrl+. and selecting the action you want to take.

We've added many new refactorings, including one that lets you wrap method parameters.

IntelliCode

Visual Studio IntelliCode is an extension that enhances your software development efforts by using artificial intelligence (AI). IntelliCode trains across 2,000 open-source projects on GitHub—each with over 100 stars—to generate its recommendations.

Here are a few ways that Visual Studio IntelliCode can help enhance your productivity:

  • Deliver context-aware code completions
  • Guide developers to adhere to the patterns and styles of their team
  • Find difficult-to-catch code issues
  • Focus code reviews by drawing attention to areas that really matter

We initially supported only C# when we first previewed the IntelliCode extension for Visual Studio. Now, we've added support for C++ and XAML in Visual Studio, too.

And if you're using C#, we've also added the ability to train a custom model on your own code.

Code cleanup

Paired with a new document health indicator is a new code cleanup command. You can use this new command to identify and then fix both warnings and suggestions with the click of a button.

The cleanup will format the code and apply any code fixes as suggested by the current settings, .editorconfig files, or Roslyn analysers.

You can also save collections of fixers as a profile. For example, if you have a small set of targeted fixers that you apply frequently while you code, and then you have another comprehensive set of fixers to apply before a code review, you can configure profiles to address these different tasks.
 

Collaborate

Team up to solve issues.

 

Cloud-first workflow

Something you'll notice when you open Visual Studio 2019 is its new start window.

The start window presents you with several options to get you to code quickly. We've placed the option to clone or check out code from a repo, first.

The start window also includes options to open a project or solution, open a local folder, or create a new project.

Live Share

Visual Studio Live Share is a developer service that allows you to share a codebase and its context with a teammate and get instant bidirectional collaboration directly from within Visual Studio. With Live Share, a teammate can read, navigate, edit, and debug a project that you've shared with them, and do so seamlessly and securely.

And with Visual Studio 2019, this service is installed by default.

Integrated code reviews

We're introducing a new extension that you can download to use with Visual Studio 2019. With this new extension, you can review, run, and even debug pull requests from your team without leaving Visual Studio. We support code in both GitHub and Azure DevOps repositories.
 

Debug

Zero in with precise targeting.


 

Performance gains

We've taken the once-exclusive C++ data breakpoints and adapted them for .NET Core applications.

So whether you're coding in C++ or .NET Core, data breakpoints can be a good alternative to just placing regular breakpoints. Data breakpoints are also great for scenarios such as finding where a global object is being modified or being added or removed from a list.

And, if you're a C++ developer who develops large applications, Visual Studio 2019 has made symbols out of proc, which allows you to debug those applications without experiencing memory-related issues.

Search while debugging

You've probably been there before, looking in the Watch window for a string amongst a set of values. In Visual Studio 2019, we've added search in the Watch, Locals, and Autos windows to help you find the objects and values you're looking for.

You can also format how a value is displayed within the Watch, Locals, and Autos windows. Double-click one of the items in any of the windows and add a comma (",") to access the drop-down list of possible format specifiers, each of which includes a description of its intended effect.

Snapshot Debugger

Get a snapshot of your app's execution in the cloud to see exactly what's happening. (This feature is available in Visual Studio Enterprise, only.)

We've added support for targeting ASP.NET (Core and desktop) applications that run on an Azure VM. And, we've added support for applications that run in an Azure Kubernetes Service. The Snapshot Debugger can help you dramatically reduce the time it takes to resolve issues that occur in production environments.
