Will ESRI be providing a Code Assist Plugin for Visual Studio 2013?
It looks like there wasn't a plugin for 3.9 made available here. I'm wondering if they've stopped doing that since
Note: these plug-ins do not yet support code that loads JS API modules using AMD due to the nature of how modules are aliased once loaded.
I attended the JS API short course at the UC this year. The issue with AMD seems to also be a problem with the code assist plugin for WebStorm. Many of the DOJO classes would display single letter parameter names in the WS Intellisense which of course made no sense at all!!. It looks like ESRI, or somebody, needs to define aliases for the DOJO aliases. Perhaps I was missing a DOJO code assist plugin?
Generally in any of the JS sessions, the presenters really downplay the use of code assist plugins, saying they don't use them. However, for a great many people who don't know all the intricacies of the API, it's an invaluable tool to help better understand it.
And a great learning tool!!
I'm looking at migrating a Silverlight app to the JSAPI. I'm considering (but haven't taken the time as yet to research) intermixing the JSAPI with some ASP.Net controls. Mainly for collecting user input to be used for searching. Is that possible? Any gotcha's that I need to know about?
I don't have any experience with ASP.Net, unfortunately. I chose VS since I was using that for my ArcObjects tool development and was fairly comfortable with it as an IDE.
