A lot of people have asked about how to debug JScript in Visual Web Developer 2005. You need to know a few tricks before you can set a breakpoint on an ASPX document (Note that the experience is vastly improved in our Orcas March CTP and I will be making a separate blog post on that soon).
The March CTP of Visual Studio marks the debut of a much-requested and long-awaited feature: improved JScript IntelliSense. We’ve been working on this for almost a year now and I’m pretty excited to finally be able to share it with the public.
Hopefully, people reading this post are familiar with the “Web Application Projects” feature that was added to Visual Studio 2005 in Service Pack 1. If you are using Web Application Projects, you might have noticed that it doesn’t have item templates for ASP.NET Mobile Web Forms (which were previously available in Visual Studio 2003).
