VS2005: ASP.net forms designer: Intellisense

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Martin Robins, Mar 31, 2006.

  1. I have created an inherited control based upon the GridView control, however
    when I use this control within the VS2005 ASP.net form designer I can no
    longer access the intellisense for the base control (technically it is now
    in a new namespace instead of the original "asp").

    I know I can create my own intellisense XML for the new properties that I
    have added, but is there a way to tell VS that the other properties should
    be taken from the asp:GridView or do I have to redo all properties within my
    own XML?

    Intellisense should work automatically if you just have the derived GirdView
    and it's related objects (fields etc) in the same namespace. So if you have
    derived from GridView, and have this subclass in your own namespace, for
    Intellisense to work, you'd need to subclass also possible field classes
    etc. and have them in this same namespace with the GridView
