Usability Issues

I still can't use ReSharper when I'm working on SharePoint proejects because it doesn't recognize the Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart object. Since every WebPart inherits from this object it makes things too confusing (everything compiles fine but there are red squigglies everywhere in the code).

It is also hard to use with projects that do a lot of XML serialization because things like XmlAttribute are still confused with XmlAttributeAttribute and such.

I've not heard any reports on the status of these types of (for me at least) show-stopping issues. Sure I like the refactoring, the enhanced intellisense (when it works), and the code coloring, but I need it to be usable.

For now I just turn ReSharper off (which works great as long as I don't open Tools->Options since ReSharper options crash VS when ReSharper is unloaded) when I working on projects that have these issues.

ReSharper has a lot of promise so keep up the good work (and fix these issues ]]>)!

We didn't know about problem with WebPart, I'll check it.

We're working on this issue right now.

Could you please clarify what do you mean under 'when it works'?

What ReSharper build are you using? Latest build does not add ReSharper
options pages to the VS options dialog at all, so it
it odd that you experience such a problem.

Cool.

Great!

er 'when it works'?


For some reason the intellisense stops working for me from time to time. I'm not sure if this is due to how many times I've installed ReSharper (build 65 on) or something in my configuration. I also experience some weird display issues with where the cursor is and where it shows on the screen (I'm using Profont for windows).

However, both of these occur at random times so I've not really been able to give a good bug report.

ld does not add ReSharper
options pages to the VS options dialog at all, so it
it odd that you experience such a problem.


I'm using Build 81, but I believe this might have happened with Build 80. I hadn't tried it again since I've installed build 81 but I'll give it a go later today.
