Two weeks ago we shipped a patch that you can apply to VS 2008 SP1 and VWD 2008 Express SP1 that causes Visual Studio to check for the presence of an optional "-vsdoc.js" file when a Java Script library is referenced, and if present to use this to drive the Java Script intellisense engine. We've worked with the j Query team to put together a j file that provides help comments and support for Java Script intellisense on chained j Query selector methods.These annotated "-vsdoc.js" files can include XML comments that provide help documentation for Java Script methods, as well as additional code intellisense hints for dynamic Java Script signatures that cannot automatically be inferred. You can download both j Query and the j Query-vsdoc file from the official download page on the j site: Save the file next to your file in your project (and make sure its naming prefix matches the jquery file name): You can then reference the standard jquery file with an html comment at the top of a standalone file. I think the error is "Error updating JScript Intelli Sense: 'div.child Nodes' is null or not an object" & i think step 6 refers to fixing this error in one of jscript files.The way I finally got it to work correctly for the minified file was to rename the vsdoc from jquery-1.6.1to jquery-1.6.1. You should have followed the procedure just as described in the article.
The annotated For example, we could use j Query to make a JSON based get request, and get intellisense for the method (hanging off of $.): As well as help/intellisense for the $JSON() method's parameters: The intellisense will continue to work if you nest a callback function within the method call.You may also find that the VSdoc file has a 2 on the end of the file.On my version this was no longer necessary, so I had to rename my vsdoc2to vsdoc.js: ctrl shift 'j' and boom: it works! Just use the Microsoft CDN instead of the Google CDNHere’s an example of the intellisense showing up with the Microsoft CDN network: Microsoft CDN hosts both j Query and the Visual Studio Intellisense for j Query.
