Support intellisense for ASP.NET Forms

WebMatrix is a great free editor with really nice extensibility features. I'm working on an extension to support remote SharePoint page editing (masterpages, pagelayouts, ...) based on my SharePoint.DesignFactory.ContentFiles NuGet package. Problem is: I don't get intellisense working on ASP.NET Forms pages (SharePoint is built on that). I tried with the simplest case: create web project in Visual Studio, open in WebMatrix. Site works, but intellisense doesn't!

        Hi Allison,

        I get the HTML intellisense, but the aspx intellisense is not working. I want to use it to edit SharePoint aspx files, I'm building tooling around it (to be published soon). It is a pitty that aspx intellisense is missing... Is there a way I can add that myself?

        Thanks for the feedback! I want to double check what you mean by not getting intellisense to work. Do you not get any intellisense at all? Or are you not seeing intellisense for ASP.NET syntax?

        I assume you are using .aspx-type pages? We currently only provide HTML intellisense for those file types, and we do not support intellisense for asp tags such as <asp:Textbox>
