VS 2008 for WPF Improvements

VS 2008 SP1 includes several significant improvements for WPF projects and the WPF designer.  These include:

·         Several performance improvements

·         Events tab support within the property browser

·         Ability to sort properties alphabetically in the property browser

·         Margin snaplines which makes form layout much quicker

·         Better designer support for TabControl, Expander, and Grid

·         Code initiated refactoring now updates your XAML (including both control declarations and event declarations in XAML)

·         Go to Definition and Find All References now support things declared in XAML

The debugger has also been updated in SP1 so that runtime errors in XAML markup (for example: referencing styles, datasources and/or other objects that don't exist) will now be better identified within the debugger:

Title: Not seeing Classic ASP Intellisense

I'm not seeing the intellisense for classic asp even in .asp pages. Is there a setting or library that you have to reference for this to work?

Well now that the vs20008 sp1 rtm is out, I am having the same issue Tim mentions. Yes, I get my .asp color coding and intellisense back but only for .asp files. In VS 2005 all I had to do was to set the file assocition to web Editor for .inc file to make this work. Unfortunately this does not work in vs2008 sp1. What is the workaround?

Great so as long as we use .ASP pages and put VBscript at the top of each page it works. Not particularly useful though if you have one asp page including lots of .inc files that has all the code that you change on a day to day basis. At least in 2005 the highlighting worked in the .inc files. Now its comlpetely useless.

Is there no way to say all ".inc" files are ASP/VBScript pages?
