IntelliSense is responsible for displaying the information-rich pop-up boxes that appeared as you typed in code. As you type in the Visual C++ IDE, IntelliSense continuously scans your program statements in search of a match. As you type words that IntelliSense recognizes, it brings up a window displaying all the possible matches and options relating to the code that you are typing.
