May I ask for auto-completion and intellisence?

NShader won't get auto-completion and intellisense as it would require several months of work, full-time, to have something usable.

SV_TARGET keyword highlighting is needed.

    • hello,
      first of all congratulations for this great plugin!
      i've been using it under vs2008.
      recently i switched to visual studio 2010 ultimate.
      when i'm trying to install the plugin (version 1.1) it shows a popup window with the following msg:
      NShader 1.1 requires Visual Studio 2008. ()
      hope this gets solved soon :)
      once again congratulations!
    • btw, my operating system is Windows 7 Professional X64.
    • Weird... are you really sure you are using the correct installer NShaderVS2010.vsix? (instead of the NShaderVS2008.msi install)
    • hello Alexandre, thanks for your reply!
      That was the problem... The download link in the main page automatically downloads the '2008 version' :)
      Once again thanks!
      Looking forward to see auto-completion and some kind of intellisense :)
    • Thanks for report. I have redirect the frontpage recommended download to a zip containing both VS2008 and VS2010 version.
