Today I encountered a strange behavior in the code editor of Visual Studio 2015. The dropdown controls with the list of controls and procedures were missing! I thought it was a glitch in the software; as it still not officially released, you could expect some issues. But no… I discovered today that it is a feature you can enable and disable. Go to Tools > Options > Text Editor > All Languages and simple check the option ‘Navigation bar’. Some research on the Internet learned me that this is a feature that already exists since years, so it is not only available in Visual Studio 2015. Sometimes I’m still amazed by what I NOT know about my favorite piece of software on my machine.
