Update: Knockout IntelliSense Highlight Bug Fix

Update: Knockout IntelliSense Highlight Bug Fix

  • Comments 3

In an earlier blog post on June 24th entitled Knockout IntelliSense Highlighting Bug Fix I described a bug fix in the Knockout IntelliSense feature. In that post I recommended installing Windows Azure SDK for .NET (VS 2012) – 2.0 to acquire the fix since it did not make it into any of the Visual Studio Updates for 2012.

Several customers have asked if there’s a lighter-weight solution to acquiring this fix. This article described the minimal install required to improve Knockout highlighting.

What Version of WTE Do I Have?

To determine what version of WTE is installed, select “About Microsoft Visual Studio” from the HELP menu in Visual Studio 2012. Scroll down the Installed Products list and find “Web Developer Tools”:

KO Highlighting bug fixed

While we referred to the release as WTE 1.3 internally and as “Web Developer Tools 1.3.40412.0” in the About Box, its official branding was “Microsoft Web Developer Tools 2012.2.1 for Visual Studio 2012.” We regret any confusion the naming convention may cause.

To retrieve and install the appropriate release:

1. Using your favorite browser, download the installer for your product and locale from the table below.

2. On a machine with Visual Studio 2012 or VS Express for Web 2012 installed, close all instances of the product.

3. Run the MSI file downloaded and select “Install.”

4. Run Visual Studio or VS Web Express and check the Web Developer Tools version in “About Microsoft Visual Studio.” It should be:

  • How about VS 2013 Express for Web. Is the fix applied to 2013 too?

  • @Jake: Yes, this is fixed in 2013 RTM.  Unfortunately 2013 RC is shipping with a known issue (but not this one.)  In RC, KO value IntelliSense will fail in some cases, although the bindings will work.  All known issues have been fixed for the 2013 RTM release.

  • And when 2013 RTM is going to be available?
