Xaml Support?

First off... SUPER MAJOR PROPS on ReSharper4!!! I've been PLEASANTLY surprised by how well it behaves, and all the new bells and whistles. :)

However, I have noticed that opening a Xaml seems to crap out VS2008. Specifically, if I open a tag, and then try to close it, it locks up my VS2008 instance HARD and I have to kill the process. :(

Just curious if there plans to be good support for Xaml/Silverlight2 for ReSharper4. :)

Keep up the great work!

Hello,

However, I have noticed that opening a Xaml seems to crap out VS2008.

Experimental threading models. The latest nightly builds have been adjusted
to avoid these deadlocks. They're not immediately related to XAML, but to
the VS XML Editor Package vs. R# interoperation issues, and existed in our
builds for less than a week.

Just curious if there plans to be good support for Xaml/Silverlight2
for ReSharper4. :)


Not as intelligent as for C#, but definitely worth trying the most recent
nightly builds )

Compatibility reasons prevent us from actively using the Avalon features
in our own products, so we're eager to hear from real-life XAML warriors.

Ok that sounds great! I'll check out the latest build and see if that problem has been fixed.

One thing that I have noticed, when install new builds, is that I have to remove keyboard settings to MoveLeft and MoveRight. Is there a reason why they keep getting set on install?

You can count on me being your Xaml Warrior... I'll definitely report issues I find here!

Thanks. :)

Hello,

CtrlAltShiftLeft and CtrlAltShiftRight, do they interfere with something
in your Visual Studio?

On install, the missing shortcuts are restored, also shortcuts to the newly-appeared
actions are added. In effect, this restores all of the R# keyboard gestures.
Presently, it's the best technical implementation we could work out on Visual
Studio. The shortcuts could not be added declaratively, because we have to
replace some of the pre-set Visual Studio shortcuts, especially when in the
IDEA-friendly keyboard scheme.

After RTM, R# is not reinstalled any so often, so this should not be a problem.
Within the EAP course, if R#'s keyboard bindings interfere with your use
of Visual Studio, you can do any of the following:
• Export the keyboard settings and import them back after each install.
• In R# Options, on the Environment::General page, choose "None". Caution:
you won't get shortcuts for the new R# commands.

I've actually updated C-S-A-Left and right to HumpExtendLeft and HumpExtendRight. I find that it treats me very very well. :) I've also mapped C-A-Left-Right to humpleft/right respectively. This is definitely one of the coolest features ever and I'm glad you put it in!

I'd like to make the recommendation that you map these keys to these strokes, as they "extend" the principle of using C-S-Left/Right for extending selection, etc.

In the future I'll use the export feature. Thanks!
