VS JavaScript IntelliSense not working as expected

I want IntelliSense to work as described here.

Unfortunately, what I get is this:
enter image description here

As you can see, there are several differences.

  • false icon

  • false member info

  • no quick info

  • thousands of other list entries, I don´t need

This is a simple ASP.NET empty webproject in VS 2015. I have checked the options under Text-Editor -> JavaScript, which seems to be correctly.


This is probably being caused by ReSharper - I've actually had a better experience by disabling the ReShaper intellisense for JavaScript and letting it fall back to using Visual Studio.

To do so, go to:

  • ReSharper->Options
  • Expand the Intellisense group under Environment, choose General
  • Select "Custom IntelliSense"
  • Select Visual Studio in the drop down on the right for JavaScript

I've personally left all others set to ReSharper.

By toggling this setting between the two choices, I switch between seeing what you're describing in the question and what the blog post you linked to describes.
