  • Blog Post: VSDoc for jQuery 1.3.2 Now Available

    jQuery 1.3 was released a little over a month ago. The 1.3 release adds exciting features such as selector performance improvements, "live events" where events can be bound to both current and future elements, and more. Version 1.3.2 was released a few days ago and fixes some bugs include one involving...
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense FAQ

    I've been reading through the 70 or so comments on our last 2 jQuery posts.  There have been a lot of great questions.  Apologies for not being able to answer them sooner (I was busy preparing for Dev Connections).  Instead of answering them inline with the comments, I'll try to paraphrase...
  • Blog Post: VS2008 SP1 Hotfix to Support "-vsdoc.js" IntelliSense Doc Files

    Last week I mentioned we would be releasing a Hotfix to accompany our new jQuery VSDoc file . This Hotfix is now available at the MSDN Code Gallery . Here's a direct download link for this small (2MB) patch: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/KB958502/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=1736 I want...
  • Blog Post: Rich IntelliSense for jQuery

    Update: A new Hotfix is availble to complement this file. A while back we updated VS2008 IntelliSense to not fail when referencing jQuery. However, getting IntelliSense for chained calls and rich summary/parameter hints still required adding special comments to a few thousand lines of jQuery. If you...
  • Blog Post: Introducing JScript Formatting in VS 2008 SP1

    Colorization, validation, IntelliSense, and formatting comprise the core of any modern editor. With VS 2008 SP1, we are completing the core JScript editor by introducing code formatting. Additionally, we have promoted JScript to a dedicated node in “Tools Options” providing a clean separation from the...
  • Blog Post: Workaround: Empty Design View for User Controls

    I've noticed quite a few people run into the issue "Why is design mode empty for my web user control (ASCX)?". It's not obvious what might be causing this bug, so I thought I'd offer an explanation and a couple workarounds. Problem You have a user control that has a "link" tag to an external style...
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense: Working with Ext JS

    Ext is great framework for adding rich AJAX interactivity to your web application. Unfortunately, JScript IntelliSense currently has difficulties processing the script and it's not uncommon to see this message: I just wanted to let everyone know that we've investigated and fixed the issue. This...
  • Blog Post: JScript Debugging: Made easy with IE8

    The feature I'm most excited about in Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 is ironically one you might not notice at all. Problem If you're reading this, you probably know (and are still untangling the double-negative logic of) the "Disable script debugging" option in IE. Say you just spent 10 hours debugging...
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense: Working with jQuery

    We have good news for jQuery fans. The hotfix we released today fixes a bug in IntelliSense where it would fail with jQuery. Any page with jQuery should just work now. While experimenting with this new-found functionality today, I found annotating the library with a few XML Doc Comments really made a...
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense: Handling Errors

    I often get the question “Why isn’t IntelliSense working?”. The most common cause is an error in one of the referenced scripts. If there was an IntelliSense update error, the status bar will tell you. Given this situation, the Error List will complement the status bar with one of two messages....
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense: A Reference for the “Reference” Tag

    It should be no surprise that JScript Documentation Comments power much of what you see in JScript IntelliSense in VS2008. Perhaps the most useful of these comments is the "reference" comment. The "reference" comment allows you to "see" functions and objects outside of your current file in the completion...
  • Blog Post: New VS2008 Feature: “Downgrade” HTML, CSS, and JScript Errors to Warnings

    VS2005 introduced the ability to validate your markup and CSS for standards compliance alongside your code. It’s a great feature, but it can be frustrating when you’re looking for that one critical compilation error underneath a pile of validation errors. Well, we heard your feedback and added two new...
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense March CTP Gotchas + Workarounds

    The March CTP is of course a "Preview" and does have some bugs. I thought we'd share the top issues seen and offer some workarounds. 1. TypeLibBuilder.exe "has encountered a problem..." If you're seeing this: This a bug where that particular assembly has not been given a Strong Name. The...
  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense in Visual Studio Orcas

    The March CTP of Visual Studio marks the debut of a much-requested and long-awaited feature: improved JScript IntelliSense . We’ve been working on this for almost a year now and I’m pretty excited to finally be able to share it with the public. There are a variety of topics I’d like to deep dive into...
