I am using the MVP-only pre-CTP5 release.

The intellisense candidate list can cover up a lot of the existing SQL statement.

cheers Ken. I look forward to it.

I suggest passing it over to the VS chaps cos it would make sense for translucent comments to appear in VS proper as well!!

Hi Jamie,

Happy New Year! :)

Unfortunately on this request it is as we suspected, the framework doesn't provide a means for us to set the transparency of the window. I will move this to our 'next major release' bucket so that we can factor it into planning. I expect for the next release we will move to a new framework for SSMS but nothing is concrete there yet.

Thanks again for the suggestions and helping us find bugs in the current release. It is much appreciated.

I'm in favor of this, because IntelliSense doesn't, well, make sense if it covers up already typed code.

Yeah I figured that but thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks for the reply. And for putting your name on it - so many people don't do that and it really does make a difference.

Hi Jamie,

I like the idea here. I will check on it a bit, but one challenge we have is that we use the visual studio framework for SSMS and we may not have control of this within our T-SQL editor. I'll do some investigation and get back to you shortly.

Best regards,
