  1. JavaScript Intellisense in Visual Studio 2008

    With Visual Studio 2008 I've done something I never thought I'd do. I'm actually using a beta of Visual Studio to write production code at work. I'm doing that not because it's the most stable platform, it's at beta 1 quality right now. I'm using it because of all the great features it adds as well as the unique ability that it can now target a .NET Framework that is different from the one it was written for. More on that in another post.

    The reason that I'm writing this post is to point you to a blog by Scott Guthrie that he posted yesterday. It is describing the great and wonderful features of JavaScript Intellisense in Visual Studio 2008. I highly recommend reading this post:

  2. Hey Michael, What did you do to IntelliSense here?

    I inherited a machine here at work that had ReSharper installed on it. I didn't want to have to pay for it so I removed it. That was in February. Since then I haven't had any IntelliSense in Visual Studio.NET 2003. Being the piss poor programmer that I am, I rely too heavily on IntelliSense and I've been lost since then. However, I finally got frustrated today when I was trying to work with a DataGrid and I decided to do some heavy searching for a solution. The answer came rather quickly from the JetBrains web site (they made ReSharper).

    The answer is this (takes directly from this address: http://support.jetbrains.com/kb/entry.jspa?categoryID=28&externalID=141):

    Sometimes when uninstalling ReSharper, it fails to restore original Visual Studio's intellisense. To restore it, go to Tools > Options > Text Editor > C# > General and check "Auto list members" and "Parameter information" checkboxes.

    Now I have my IntelliSense back.
