Does anyone know why VS (in Vb.Net) would stop underlining syntax errors with its usual blue squiggles? The errors are there, the app does not compile, but the IDE does not indicate them as I type. I can make the most obvious of syntax errors
and no squiggles. Any ideas?

Possibly the severity of the errors is stopping the display.

Haha, my coding's not that bad. I can compile the app fine. But, say, I type a line and leave off a bracket at the end (to, say, copy and paste a var name from the above line), I would ordinarily see a blue squiggle denoting a missing bracket. But no, nothing,
and this phenomenon occurs throughout the app.
I should add, this issue does not happen in other projects, only this legacy project I've been handed. It's as if there's something in the Solution or Project files that has switched off as-you-type syntax checking, but
I can see no such flag anywhere.
How to fix?
