JavaScript Intellisense for the Virtual Earth Map Control


UPDATE: Fixed the embedded video.

Have you ever wished you could get JavaScript Intellisense for the Virtual Earth Map Control in Visual Studio 2008?  I have, so I came up with a solution and started a codeplex project!  I just recorded a short 10 minute channel 9 screencast explaining the solution.  The screencast is here.  I have also embedded the video in this post for those of you who prefer that.  Once the video has started, you can double click it to go fullscreen.

The project is not finished.  I need people to volunteer to contribute so we can release full intellisense for the Virtual Earth Map Control 6.0.  Instructions for people who want to contribute are in the screencast.  The more people willing to contribute, the faster we make this available for everyone!

The codeplex project is http://codeplex.com/vejs.

    The last sentence of the first paragraph reads "Once the video has started, you can double click it to go fullscreen."

    Is that not working for you?

    Marc,

    That email address bounced – does it work external to Microsoft?

    my message:

    Marc,

    I’d love to help (user: SoulSolutions), but I’d also like to help get others involved. I completely understand the concept and agree you need a bunch of volunteers to make this a community project and share the workload.

    I moderate the VE Forums and posted here:

    I haven’t put this email address in the post but let me know if I can (I hate spam too!)

    Thanks,

    You want to use the map.GetDirections() API.

    You can find more details using the interactive sdk at http://dev.live.com/virtualearth/sdk/ or via the full blown sdk at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb877838.aspx.
