Updating intellisense hang

In my case I had to wait over 1 minute to have Intelli Sense accessible (slow connection and db with about 1000 tables).

(SSMS doesn't display any progress indicator or any info related to loading process of Intelli Sense) Thank you for your interest in this question.

Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).

Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

I have tried refeshing the Intelli Sense cache with Ctrl-Shft-R but that doesn't work either.

Any ideas what happened to my Intelli Sense and what I need to do to get it back?

However, I found that "Auto list members" and "Parameter information" were unchecked. These features help you to learn more about the code you are using, keep track of the parameters you are typing, and add calls to properties and methods with only a few keystrokes.

Hopefully this post helps you with the same issues.

I have no hesitation in recommending this to any other PHP developer now or into the future.

I have used numerous "PHP specific" IDEs in the past and have always wished they would share the comfort of developing in VS, with this extension it is made possible and has exceeded my expectations.

The very first thing I noticed was that after about 10 minutes of programming my Intellisense quit working and never came back. Strangely, I did not find the “correct” aka permanent solution to this problem.

So, after a ton of screwing around and guess-and-check, here’s how I solved it.
