Here is a great tip for any Visual Studio fans out there if you want to get intellisense working for jQuery.

You can simply drag-n-drop the jQuery library for your Solution Explorer to the opened .js file. Be sure you place it at the VERY beginning of the file – even before your comments or headers.


You intellisense should work now but confirm you have the refernce at the very top if not it should look like this: /// <reference path=”../jquery-1.5.8.js” />


Hope that helps!
