inlay hints for Rust development with Visual Studio Code

Open Settings.json and enter the following.

I am using Darcula theme so I am wrapping colorCustomizations inside that key.

  • You can remove that key if you want color customizations to be applied across all themes.
  • Change color for typeForeground and typeBackground to your likings
  • Uncomment line which has offUnlessPressed to toggle inlayHints upon keypress ctrl + alt
"workbench.colorCustomizations": {
  [Darcula]: {
      "editorInlayHint.typeForeground": "#525252",
      "editorInlayHint.typeBackground": "#2D2D2D"

"[rust]": {
    "editor.defaultFormatter": "rust-lang.rust-analyzer"
    // "editor.inlayHints.enabled": "offUnlessPressed"
"rust-analyzer.inlayHints.bindingModeHints.enable": false,
"rust-analyzer.inlayHints.closureReturnTypeHints.enable": "never",
"rust-analyzer.inlayHints.typeHints.enable": false,
"rust-analyzer.inlayHints.parameterHints.enable": false,

This is how it looks after inlay hints setting change.
