Strongly typed resources and intellisense

In Whidbey both Vb.NET and C#  get strongly typed resources.   But the intellisense story is very different


When hovering over a resource named AResourceString in C#, intellisense display the type information and the comments, hence displaying the default value for the resource..


 



 


 


In Vb.NET, this is all you get, just the type:


 


 


So as you can see, editing the C# code is much more friendlier. You can tell instantly that AResourceString defaults to “this shows in C# but not VB”.
