VS2010 - Javascript intellisense/syntax highlighting not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello , I am using VS2010. In one of my projects the Javascript intellisense/syntax highlighting not working , after it was fine for  two years.All text is just black and white ,no syntax coloring. In the same solution in other projects the js seems to be ok (but i can't tell for sure , I just tried to open js file but not working with it). In all other solutions there is no problem at all. If I open the .js file in another solution - it seems fine .If I open a file from another solution in the problematic solution - it also NOT colored . It seems there is some kind of a problem with the specific solution. I tried to open an new solution , and to import the files from the problematic solution - it DIDN'T help. When I debug the file - the dynamic copy in memory is colored fine.

    I think it might have something to do with the TFS , because the problem started at one of my colleague's computer and after he checked in and I did the get latest version I had the same problem as well , and all other colleagues had the problem after they took the last version.

    Please help me , this is unbearable  to work like this.

  • Hi,

    Did you change the extension file name?

    As I know, if we change the extension file name, VS can't recognize it.

    Another way you can try:

    Right click the file->Choose open with-> choose HTML editor.

  • Hi ,

    All files are with .js extention.

    I tried to open with HTML editor - still no colors.

    What else can be done ?

    Maybe some settings in csproj file ?
