Hi Experts,

  I have the below snippet and it doesn't show up in IntelliSense!  Why?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<CodeSnippets xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/CodeSnippet">
  <CodeSnippet Format="1.0.0">

    <!-- The header contains information describing the snippet. -->
    <Header>

      <!-- The Title of the snippet, this will be shown in the snippets manager. -->
      <Title>For Loop - 0 base</Title>

      <!-- The description of the snippet. -->
      <!-- <Description>Inserts an Apex Notifying Property.</Description> -->

      <!-- The author of the snippet. -->
      <!-- <Author>Dave Kerr</Author> -->

      <!-- The set of characters that must be keyed in to insert the snippet. -->
      <Shortcut>forloop0</Shortcut>

      <!-- A URL for more help. -->
      <!-- <HelpUrl>http://apex.codeplex.com</HelpUrl> -->

      <!-- The set of snippet types we're dealing with - either Expansion or -->
      <SnippetTypes>
        <SnippetType>Expansion</SnippetType>
      </SnippetTypes>

    </Header>

    <!-- Now we have the snippet itself. -->
    <Snippet>

      <!-- Sepecify the code language and the actual snippet content. -->
      <Code Language="CSharp" Kind="any">
        <![CDATA[
        for(int index = 0; index < variable; index++) 
        {
        
        }
        
        ]]>
      </Code>
    </Snippet>
  </CodeSnippet>
</CodeSnippets>

Open in new window


It shows up in Snipet Manager:

I try using it by typing forloop0, but InteliSense shows nothing!  This is a simple example, but I can save a lot of time using these if I can get it to work!

Thanks!

I was able to access it by doing CTRL+K+X then it was under My Code Snippets!  It'll work though not sure why IntelliSense doesn't pick it up!  I'll keep this question open for a couple of days to see if anyone has better ideas!

What are you typing within Intellisense? Your file appears to work for me:
