I recently came across the problem where the intellisense for ASP.NET markup was not appearing in Visual Studio 2008.
After doing a Google search, I had gathered and tried the following suggestions:
- In Visual Studio: Tools ➞ Options ➞ Text Editor ➞ All Languages ➞ Turn on “Auto list members”
- Reinstalling Resharper
- Deleting the HKEY\Local Machine\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0 registry node (which then prevented Visual Studio from running!)
- Repairing Visual Studio
- Uninstalling and then reinstalling Visual Studio
And still it didn’t solve my issue - there was still no ASP.NET intellisense for me!
The solution was to right click on a .aspx page in my solution, select “Open With” and change the default setting back to “Web Form Editor”.
Somehow, someway, this had changed.
Hopefully this will save someone else a few days of hassle!
