jQuery 1.4.1 Intellisense with Visual Studio

[In addition to blogging, I am also now using Twitter for quick updates and to share links. Follow me at: twitter.com/scottgu]

A few people have emailed me recently asking about the availability of a Visual Studio –vsdoc intellisense hint file for jQuery 1.4.1. 

I blogged about –vsdoc files in the past – they provide additional intellisense help information for Visual Studio, and enable you to get a richer intellisense experience with dynamic Javascript libraries.  If you are using VS 2008 SP1 you’ll want to download and install this patch in order to have VS 2008 automatically use –vsdoc files with intellisense.  VS 2010 has support for –vsdoc files built-in.

jQuery 1.4.1 –vsdoc download

The good news is that you can download –vsdoc files for jQuery directly from the jQuery web-site (look for the “Documentation: Visual Studio” link under each major version).  Here is a direct pointer to the recently released –vsdoc file for jQuery 1.4.1 that you can use.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Thanks.

Can't wait to give it a shot.  I've been wanting to teach myself more jQuery.  This will be a good excuse for me to start again.

jQuery intellisense is great and I hope this intellisense works even for the plugins :)

Cool!  No one has a better job than I do!  Can't wait to download 2010 RC and try out all of these things together!

Thanks Scott, this is nice.

Wondering, is it pre-built in VS2010 RC?

# re: jQuery 1.4.1 Intellisense with Visual Studio

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 10:45 PM by Stan

Nah, the RC has 1.3.2. Now I need to automate something to distribute 1.4.1 so I don't have to remember :)

Why does VS2010 RC not work when the file is named jquery-1.4.1.min-vsdoc.js used along with jquery-1.4.1.min.js? This is the configuration used in VS2008 (with the update). When I rename the file to jquery-1.4.1-vsdoc.js I get IntelliSense in VS2010, but not 2008. Why has this been changed?

I installed SP1 for VS2008 and I installed the patch, then I referenced jquery libraries in my project. But I don't know how can I add functionnality of jquery in my code

Scott,

It works in my MVC 1 projects with jquery version 1.3.2, but it isn't working for a project that I created in MVC 2 that had jquery-1.4.1. Thanks!

The link to the 1.4.1 version of the -vsdoc file seems to be broken (I get the "This webpage is not available" error).
