support for BuildProviders?

I am curious if there are any plans to support custom ASP.NET BuildProviders
in Resharper 2.0. I created a custom BuildProvider in my web site and while
VS intellisense recognizes the classes that are generated, and the site compiles,
resharper highlights the classes in red whenever I reference them.

Andy,

Could You describe it in more details. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of
Build, links to resources, which describe them, are highly appreciated.
Anyway, I think we will do.

Hello Sergey,

A BuildProvider is a new component in ASP.NET 2.0 which provides a mechanism
for auto generating code. In fact, I believe ASP.NET uses build providers
behind the scenes to do its compilation. But in addition to the out of the
box build providers, they allow you to write your own build providers (specified
in the web.config file). The really nice thing about this is that Visual
Studio provides full intellisense support for it. It would be nice if Resharper
supported custom build providers, both in its intellisense and also in its
background error checking. Here are a few articles that describe the feature
more completely:
