    I have a website that I have been working on over the last couple of  months.  It uses the Rad Grid and etc..   The other day I create a contact us form and notice the code hinting is not bring up the Rad controls. 

    For example I have a radtextbox called txtFirstName, txtFirstName and a standard asp.net label called lblDisplay.  The lblDisplay appears in the code hit popup box, while txtFirstName does not appear in the code behind. 

    I went ahead and type out the txtFirstName because I know it exists.  My test page runs fine in the browsers. 


    I set up a total new site, and did not have this problem. 

    Does this have something to do with the Web.config file?

    Where do I start looking?

    I am using RadControls Q3 2008, maybe I need to update?

    Thanks,
    David

    Update to the Problem:

    I found a post on IntelliSense in the forum that might fix my problem.  
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/general-discussions/vs2008-intellisense.aspx

    I have mutilply computers in the office here.  One is my desktop for development, and the other is a 2008 Server with IIS 7 and SQL 2005 installed.    I have never install RadControls for ASP.Net Ajax on the Server 2008. 

    My server 2008 does not have frontpage extensions install on it.  I am using the server as a share drive to develop on. 

    Thanks,
    David

    I am surprize I did not see this problem months ago: I guess I never pay any attention to the intellisense before. 

    Problem Solved:

    Solution:
    Installed iis7 frontpage extensions on my Windows Server 2008
    Connected VS2008 via frontpage extension instead of a fileshare

    Question:
    Why does intellisense work for regular asp controls work when connecting via a fileshare on the network?

    Hi David,

    Could it be that your project is located on a shared drive? There were other customers complaining of this Visual Studio 2005 limitation. Can you move it to a local drive and try again if this is the case?

    Erjan,

      The project was located on the Windows 2008 server shared drive.  Yes it does work on my local drive.  I am using VS2008 for development.   I did solve the problem by installing frontpage extensions onto the Windows 2008 server.
