Business value

IntelliSense helps with listing possible members and speeding up code writing. However, in some cases IntelliSense has been missing for available table keys when you wanted to set sorting on table views, and that can lead to inefficient development.

Feature details

When you apply sorting on various objects—for example, when using the DataItemTableView property on reports, or the SourceTableView property on pages and XMLPorts—IntelliSense now lists all of the defined keys on the references table, making it easy to select the key to use.
