#VS2015- New features for Error List Panel: Filters and Online Help


I’ve been using Visual Studio 2015 as my main IDE since a while. One the things I really like about this, is I find really cool stuff almost every day. A couple of weeks ago I was in Andorra and I was sharing one of this new features with my geek friends: New features for Error List Panel: Filters and Online Help

If you worked with my, you probably know I’m not a big fan of the Error List Panel. I always recommend to read the Output Log information instead the Error List information. That’s mainly because if you are focused on one project, the Error List panel display all the build errors and is sometimes kind of a mess. That’s why, use the Output Log.

Now with Visual Studio 2015 we have a new feature: Error Filter which display build errors on

– Entire Solution

– Current Project

– Current Document

– Open Documents

Also there is a filter for build errors, Intellisense errors or both. And if the error has a public reference on MSDN, there is a link to Access to the online help.

A 10 seconds video is the best Presentation for this.

And remember, in 7 days we’ll finally get the Visual Studio 2015 RTM version 😀
