Quick tip: (free) JScript Editor Extensions for Visual Studio

  • Comments 2

As more and more sites and web applications take advantage of JavaScript, it’s always nice to have better editor support for the language in our Visual Studio tools.

There is a free extension for Visual Studio available for a few months already, which I only now found out through a newly released video on Channel9: Visual Studio Toolbox: JScript Editor Extensions.

Damian Edwards, a member of the ASP.NET team at Microsoft joins this episode to demo the JScript Editor Extensions and talk about what can be expected in Visual Studio vNext.
Enabling things like brace matching, outlining regions, highlighting instances of a word and more, it’s going to be a welcome addition to anyone doing JavaScript code in VS.

Note: if you’re looking for more or extending these extensions you can start by viewing or downloading the source code from these extensions from Codeplex.

  • Its a nice addition to visual studio extension, but we need more and more re-factoring and IntelliSense feature, I have already left an comment in the vs extension gallery, and looking forward to get those in future release of this extension.

  • is it possible to collapse all functions inside an external js file.

    e.g.

    If I have a hundred functions e.g.

    function MyFunction1{

      var x = "1";

    }

    function MyFunction2{

      var x = y;

    }

    it will collapse to

    function MyFunction1{}

    function MyFunction2{}
