Parameter Information

METHODS are things that objects can do. (We’ll look at exactly what “object” and “method” mean in detail in Chapter 8.) Some methods take PARAMETERS, which are bits of information that you pass to the method to control exactly how it does whatever it is it does. In the bad old days before Intellisense, programmers spent a lot of time trying to remember exactly what parameters a method took, and in what order. The Intellisense Parameter Info box eliminates all that by showing you exactly what your options are.

As soon as you type the opening paren of a method call, Intellisense displays the Parameter Info box that shows you the method definition, a description of the method, and of the first parameter.
