Type the first letters from the template name and use the "Trigger Suggest" command. Code templates are preceded by the "Template" keyword.

Custom Templates

VS Code allows to create a custom code template, using the Code Snippets feature. Use the "Snippets: Configure User Snippets" command and choose a language for which the snippets should appear. Alternatively, you can choose to configure snippets at a workspace or global level.

For a comprehensive reference regarding custom snippets structure see the Code Snippets - Create your own snippets chapter in the official VS Code documentation.

To insert a custom code snippet, you can either use the content assist or the "Snippets: Insert Snippet" command.
