  • Blog Post: UPDATED WORKAROUND: Intellisense for page level map variables using the Virtual Earth JavaScript Intellisense Helper

    UPDATE: AH FOOEY!  I feel like a goof:).  Turns out my workaround DOESN'T WORK!!!  If you look at the logic from the original post, it makes sense that it wouldn't work because “var map = new VEMap();” is before “var map = null;” and therefore you get Intellisense...
