I’ve got wonderful news for you Microsoft developers (me included). Early this morning, John Resig and Scott Guthrie announced on their respective blogs that, beginning in a few weeks, all versions of Visual Studio (including the free Visual Web Developer) will include Intellisense support for jQuery. For those of you who already own Visual Studio 2008, you’ll be able to download an update sometime in October.
I’m ecstatic about this decision. Though, I’ll very rarely rely on the intellisense when developing, it’s always nice to have that added feedback and spell checking implemented.
var elementValue = $get("someElement").value;
The AJAX framework uses the “$get” shorthand in place of “document.getElementById”. jQuery, in this case, would be written like:
var elementValue = $("#someElement").text;
I’m digressing a bit; but the bottom line is that this is great news for Visual Studio developers. For more information, read Scott Guthrie and John Resig’s blog postings.
