Major Features Of Visual Studio Code

@Code Handle: One of the most awesome things about VS Code is not actually a feature of the editor itself. VS Code was launched during //BUILD 2015 with an accompanying @code Twitter handle – how cool is that?! Let us leave it to your imagination on how Microsoft pulled off securing that awesome social brand.

Side-by-Side Editing: VS Code supports one of the most sought-after developer requests – editing code side by side. Simply Command (⌘) / Control click on a file from your project explorer and, voila, multiple files open up side by side, pre-docked and ready for edits. VS Code can support up to three simultaneous file edits, each of which can be launched from the command prompt as well. The screenshot below shows two files from an ASP.NET project being open for edits side by side – life is good.

Command Palette: One of the powerful utilities of VS Code that you may want to keep handy is the Command Palette – simply hit Command/Control+Shift+P (⇧⌘P) to bring it up.

Function Parameters: One of the nifty IntelliSense features of VS Code is helping out with typed function parameters during corresponding invocation, thus allowing easy code completion. This obviously works with programming language/system functions, but is also smart enough to offer help on custom functions that you have in your code.

Peek Information: As developers, you may often want to peek at a different file or check a function definition. But a full-on context switch can be expensive, since it takes you away from what you were about to type. Enter Peek help from VS Code. Simply Right Click or (⌥F12) – and Peek Definition is here to help, as shown below. The results of the peek are embedded inline and the inline peek information goes away on hitting Escape, saving you the big context switch.
