JScript IntelliSense: Working with jQuery

We have good news for jQuery fans.  The hotfix we released today fixes a bug in IntelliSense where it would fail with jQuery.  Any page with jQuery should just work now.  While experimenting with this new-found functionality today, I found annotating the library with a few XML Doc Comments really made a big difference.  The key is to add a return type of “jQuery” like this:


doc comments


Here’s some jQuery chaining with IntelliSense:


completion list


tooltip


There were only a few functions that (due to the way they were declared) were not able to be annotated.  Special thanks to Brennan where I borrowed the comments from.  If anyone will be making a fully annotated version of jQuery, I’d be happy to post a link to it from here.
