Hidden option for C# to enable real time ERRORS

Have you ever got annoyed by C# IDE that you don’t find all errors until you compile project? If you ever worked with Visual Basic you will appreciate how much time saver it can be to detect all errors before you compile. Visual Basic Does that magic by running Background Compiler as you type… It detects almost every error which can be detected by C# compiler after you compile (e.g. Removing Project Reference not validated until you compile)

You can quickly enable such functionality in C# by checking below option. Its still not true background compiler like Visual Basic but “losers cant be choosers” …

Goto Tools -> Options -> Text Editors -> C# -> Advanced
Check “Show live semantic errors”
