ASP.NET Ajax-aware JavaScript IntelliSense

Category: .NET, Atlas

A new release of Visual Studio “Orcas” shows off the intellisense features nicely, including:

  • Proactive Completion List: No more waiting for ‘.’
  • Keywords in Completion List: fun your way to function
  • ASP.NET AJAX Concepts in Completion List: Direct support for Atlas
  • IntelliSense from Script Libraries for ASPX Pages: Now you can see objects that exist in other external script files

This comes along with the release of an updated Ajax Control Toolkit.

Great news! I am looking forward to this kind of editor

Looks cool. Just a reminder that Aptana is still under very active development and does similar intellisense quite nicely, too.

I prefer Aptana to be honest, seems easier to use.

But this does look interesting and promising.

Visual Studio just keeps getting better every iteration. Just wish there were more IDE’s out there with intellisense/autocomplete that is as fast and complete as Visual Studio’s implementation.

Aptana looks pretty slick, but I hate using the Eclipse variants on Windows where there’s better alternatives. Java just eats up too many resources.

I don’t like Aptana. Visual Studio 2005 is fantastic. I can’t wait for more comprehensive JavaScript intellisense.

I really want this like yesterday…

Javascript Intellisense is greatly enhanced in the Beta 2 release of Visual Studio 2008. Check out this blog for more:
