VS 2005 Intellesense/Coloring Regression Between 3.5 and 3.0 in XAML

Since the WPF Extensions in 2005 are not final, does the R# team care about regressions of this type? I have a lot of XAML that has "gone red" since moving over to 3.0 Beta.from 2.5.

For example I have an entire ControlTemplate inside of a UserControl that has gone red squiggly, yet another CT is fine and the whole app compiles and runs.

Let me know if you would like to take a look at the XAML.

Adam,

We are working hard on improving XAML support. If you send us your sample,
we'll most likely fix it shortly.
By the way, what build are you using? I've done several critical fixes
recently.

You may email the solution directly to me: qx at jetbrains dot com
Thanks in advance.

Oops I meant to say "... Between Resharper 2.5 and 3.0 with XAML" not to imply a difference between.NET 3.0 and .NET 3.5.

I am using R# 3.0.448.7.

I see. The problem is that in 3.0 we completely rewritten XAML support
subsystem. So we need constructive feedback extremely.

Hi Sergey,

If you don't mind, I have a quick question. Does the R# XAML support require the installation of the VS2005 Extensions for .NET 3.0, or does it work independently? I ask because the extensions from Microsoft are a bit old (a November 2006 CTP, I believe), and I'm not sure if Microsoft plans to release a final version for VS2005, or if they're going to make us use Orcas. For that matter, does R# 3.0 support Orcas?

My apologies if these questions have already been asked and answered.

Cheers,
Mike

Hello,

For all that I know, R# does not rely on the VS Extensions for its XAML support.
(Sergey, am I right?) As for the Orcas support, you can already install any
R# beta/EAP/nightly that's not too old. Beta 2 will go, for instance. Running
R# under Orcas is not fully supported by JetBrains, which means that we are
eager to provide such a possibility, but aren't ready to process the bug
and feature requests yet. Expectingly, the new language features will be
red in the code. But since you lower the language level in the project settings,
it should be OK. We think it will be good to ship a new Orcas-capable R#
version right by the Visual Studio 9 release — XAML support included … and
further improved.

Please check the installation details at http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/InstallationNotesfor+ReSharper.

Not quite, we need framework dlls (such as presentationFramework.dll etc)
being installed. This should be sufficient for R# features to work.
