Properties missing from Visual Studio 2010 Intellisense..

Today I ran into a problem that made me think I was either blind, crazy.. or both.

I created a new SharePoint 2010 project in Visual Studio 2010 and was trying to code against the SPSite.WebApplication property but it was not showing up in the Intellisense. I thought I found a bug with VS 2010…

It turned out this property is not visible in Intellisense because my SharePoint project is a “sandboxed” solution (and I think this is the default setting). Sandboxed solution is new to SP 2010:
Set the project to be a “normal” solution and the property I was looking for is visible in Intellisense. You can do this by clicking on the project file in the Solution Explorer, and set it in the Property window.
