Automatic completion is called with the key combination CTRL + SPACE at the appropriate point in the editor. The contents of the list is determined by the key words in the code.

Entering Code Snippets

Input fields that required data in VB.Net syntax support code snippets. Standard code snippets are available in the option "Visual Basic". The option "Object layer" contains special code snippets for the One Identity Manager object layer.

You can insert code snippets using the following options:

    • Select the code snippet.
  2. Using a shortcut

    • Select the option "Object layer" or "Visual Basic".
    • Select the code snippet.
  3. Using an aliases
    • Enter an alias.
    • Use Tab to insert the code snippet.

      NOTE: Remember that the connection name is case sensitive.

NOTE: If you select the code snippet using a shortcut or the icon, a short description and the shortcut name is displayed in a tooltip.

TIP: You can use custom code snippets. To do this, create a directory CustomSnippets in the One Identity Manager installation directory to store the code snippets. Use Visual Studio documentation to develop your own code snippets.
Inputting Values using Dollar ($) Notation

If you enter a "$" in fields which expect VB.Net expressions, a wizard opens. All properties of the current object are displayed. You can also see a tooltip with a detailed description of the property. If you select an FK column, you can navigate to the columns of the associated table using the arrows keys. Exit the selection on the target column with Enter or by double-clicking. The complete $ notation for your selection should now be shown in the input column. Use Esc or exit the input field to close the list without accepting any data.
