Trying to disable intellisense triggering when I press '.', and instead only triggering when I deliberately press ctrl-space. I see this has been asked twice before here:


I managed to shut this off in Visual Studio by turning off "Auto List Members", just like the person in one of the other threads did. However, with Visual Assist enabled it still happens. I tried turning off "Enable Suggestion Lists" and the other corresponding options, but this turns off the lists entirely, even when I press ctrl-space. Frustratingly, with these off, it actually brings back Visual Studio's list when I press '.', so it doesn't even solve that problem.

Any help on how this can be disabled and make it behave just like turning off "Auto List Members" would be excellent.

Thank you!

I think I have a solution. Testing in VS2022 with VA 2528, I have turned Off IDE intellisense by setting:

IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Disable Database = True

and in VA options I have set:

VA Options -> Enhanced Listboxes -> Source of C/C++ content: Visual Assist

now when I type a dot after a local variable no listbox appears automatically. But if I then press CTRL-SPACE a member listbox is appearing.
