Introduction to Visual studio 2012 (Feature Highlights)
I recently talked about the new features and improvements in Visual Studio 2012, at my workplace. I’ll probably write a post on the same soon, but meanwhile here’s a quick PowerPoint slides I created for my talk.
Some quick take away(s)!
- New look
- Preview files in Solution Explorer
-single click to preview, double click to pin
- Extended Solution Navigation
-view all your classes, methods, properties in the solution explorer itself
- Easier to raft tabs on second monitor
-the tab stays open if you minimize visual studio!
- Improved search
-search solution for classes, methods etc., IDE search for settings, menu item etc.
-improved intellisense including jQuery Brace matching, Breakpoints, Go To Definition
- HTML5 support
-use html tags like <header> <section> without squiggly. Older browsers use Polyfills via Modernizr
- Improved CSS3 support
-CSS3 intellisense i.e. border-radius, animation etc. Color picker (Ctrl+Space)
- Page Inspector
-(like Firebug) Highlights .cshtml, or aspx pages as well on hover
