How to view the XAML Code on the Intellisense popup in Visual Studio 2010 ?

Most of the Developers working on the Visual Studio would love the Intellisense feature that pops up and gives the list of suggested methods , events , properties etc and is useful too .

But how do one view the sourcecode that is covered by the Intellisense window like the below screenshot of the XAML Code of Windows Phone 7 Application ?

When the Intellisense is displayed , just press and hold the ctrl key .

This shortcut key makes the Intellisense popup windows to be transparent and the code behind will be visible .

Leave the Ctrl Key back to see the Intellisen again . The same works in the Code Behind too 🙂
