Inlay hints add additional inline information to source code to help you understand what the code does. This can help you understand the meaning of each argument at a glance, which is especially helpful for functions that take Boolean flags or have parameters that are easy to mix up.
this.tokens.forEach(t => t.cancel()); with inlay hints would become
this.tokens.forEach(callbackfn: t : CancellationTokenSource => t.cancel());
So visually we add grayed out hints in the line. These hints are not accessible so we were thinking how to make them accessible, and for now we went with the command
"Read Line With Inlay Hints" that would move focus to the HTML elements that has this additional richness. This is still in early development so we are very much looking for feedback.
"editor.inlayHints.enabled": true, "typescript.inlayHints.enumMemberValues.enabled": true, "typescript.inlayHints.parameterNames.enabled": "all", "typescript.inlayHints.parameterTypes.enabled": true, "typescript.inlayHints.functionLikeReturnTypes.enabled": true
So if you are using js/ts try it out and let us know what you think.
VS Code supports multiple cursors. More about this feature can be found here https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/codebasics#_multiple-selections-multicursor
The idea behind multiple cursors is what you type at one cursor the other cursors will replicate. So it makes refactorings faster.
When you have multiple cursors there is still a “primary” cursor and screen reader will read what is on the line of the primary cursor.
Because of this we have introduced “Focus Next Cursor” and “Focus Previous Cursor” commands. So you can change what is the active cursor, so that you can choose based on which cursor line does the screen reader read.
You can try it out in latest VS Code Insiders and let us know what you think about this feature.
I am fairly new to coding, and was hoping for some advice from this community. I can't figure out how to read my output when I use VS code Jupyter Notebooks extension to run my code. Control+shift+U brings me to the pannel that says tasks - output editor and jaws asks me to use arrow keys to read the text. But there's nothing there even though I'm pretty sure there should be (tested it using Jupyter Notebook application).
Thanks for the advice in advance!
let age=42;, it should say age, variable, number or something like that, basically type inference as offered by the extensions already. This feature could be very useful for other things as well, dk the full extent of what mouseover can do because obviously I can't perform it.
