Why Visual Studio 2015 XAML Autocomplete is not working?


(SAM) #1

I’m currently working on a project in Visual Studio 2015, a WPF project (if that matters) using C# and XAML. and using .NET Framework 4.6 version. while working suddenly the XAML Autocomplete stopped working (stopped showing all Members, Controls Types…etc) and instead is showing these items (!–, [!CDATA[, ?). what is the reason behind that and how can i fix it (possibly without having to restart visual studio)?

autocomplete suggestions not being shown means that XDesProc.exe process has internally crashed. just terminate that process from your task manager. and Visual Studio will re-start it automatically once you reload the XAML designer on Visual Studio.
