Visual Studio 2012 feature series

Tag highlighting in Visual Studio 2012:

In visual studio 2012 You can highlight the start and end tag of a particular HTML element. One you click on starting tag of HTML element it will have other part highlighted just like following.


Automatic Tag Update in Visual studio 2012:

This feature will help you when you change HTML in Visual studio 2012. When you modify start tag of HTML element it will update end tag automatically. You don’t have to worry about it. For example in above picture we have <div>tag and now if change this to <p> it will automatically update like following.


Full HTML5 tag support:

Visual studio 2012 now supports all the HTML5 tag and provide intellisense for that. So You can develop HTML5 web applications very easily.


That’s it. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more..

  1. Any idea how to turn the "Automatic Tag Update" feature off? It is a total pain in the butt in VS 2012!!!

    I open up a file to add a single cfelseif statement to an existing cfif statement (using CFML for coldfusion) and it decides that my closing /cfif tag should magically become /cfelseif. so simple one-line code changes can unknowingly break code because MS has decided they are smarter than me at writing code.


Your feedback is very important to me. Please provide your feedback via putting comments.
