Wow! Hey, thank you for reading all the way to the end! About once or twice a year, whenever Sara writes long conference trip reports or long summary e-mail messages at work, she usually has a line at the bottom saying, "To show my appreciation to you for reading this far, I’ll buy you a latte. E-mail me to receive your coupon." It’s fun to see people’s reactions in their replies. In lieu of espresso, Sara’s way of saying thanks is to provide you with one last tip about Visual Studio 2008.


Hold down the Ctrl key to make the statement completion window transparent. This transparency
is especially useful when the statement completion window is blocking text or other code that you
need to read in order to know which object or method to select. And to make the statement
completion window
reappear, simply release the Ctrl key.
