    Today I saw a post on stackoverflow.com asking Using Microsoft AJAX Minifier with Visual Studio 2010 1-click publish . This is a response to that question.

  • 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: 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.

  • 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.

  • Blog Post: JScript IntelliSense: Working with Ext JS

    Ext is great framework for adding rich AJAX interactivity to your web application.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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...

    We have discovered that in a very limited number of setup scenarios of Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2, Jscript IntelliSense and Colorization may not work property after installing the product.
