Article Description:
I've blogged in the past about some of the text editor improvements in VS 2008 that have been made for JavaScript intellisense and CSS style intellisense . Recently I was looking over the shoulder of someone writing some code, and saw them using some other new text editing features that I hadn't seen before ("wait - how did you just do that?"). Below is a non-exhaustive list of a few new code editing improvements I've learned about this week. I'm know there are many more I don't know about yet - but I thought these few were worth sharing now: Transparent Intellisense Mode One of the things I sometimes find annoying with intellisense in VS 2005 is that the intellisense drop-down obscures the code that is behind it when it pops-up: With VS 2005...(read more)

    Article Description:
    One of the big features that web developers will quickly discover with VS 2008 is its dramatically improved HTML designer, and the rich CSS support it brings. VS 2008 now uses the same web designer that ships with Microsoft's new Expression Web product. In addition to providing lots of new functionality, you'll also find that this web designer is much faster than the VS 2005 version (which was based on a much older code base). Below is a quick tour of some of the new web designer features that you'll be able to take advantage of with both VS 2008 as well as the free Visual Web Developer 2008 Express: Split View Editing In addition to supporting both source-view and design-view, VS 2008 adds support for a new "split-view" mode when working on...(read more)
