Microsoft Visual Studio uses Microsoft software development platforms such as Windows API, Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Store and Microsoft Silverlight. It can produce both native code and managed code.
Visual Studio includes a code editor supporting IntelliSense (the code completion component) as well as code refactoring. The integrated debugger works both as a source-level debugger and a machine-level debugger.
Other built-in tools include a forms designer for building GUI applications, web designer, class designer, and database schema designer. It accepts plug-ins that enhance the functionality at almost every level. Also includes the adding support for source-control systems (like Subversion) and adding new toolsets like editors and visual designers for domain-specific languages. Or toolsets for other aspects of the software development lifecycle (like the Team Foundation Server client: Team Explorer).
