    Intellisense for CSS doesn't work in two ways:

    1. The file directory listing autocomplete fires an exception (see procedure below)
    2. There is no autocomplete for CSS classes except for the classes already used in the HTML file


    1. Start a Typescript project (VS 2015 Community Edition)
    2. Install a bower package
    3. Try to add the link to the package CSS in the HTML by typing <link href="
    4. Invoke Intellisense
    5. Get the error message as shown in the screenshot attached whereas you should normally get a directory/file list


    1. The error message from Visual Studio
    2. An excerpt from the Visual Studio activity log

    Some notes:

    1. I've had this issue on two computers, one of them with a completely clean installation of both Windows/Visual Studio 
    2. The exception only shows once after starting Visual Studio
    3. Adding a script tag does bring up the directory listing successfully
    4. The issue also occurs for Javascript projects

    Hello Kristof,

    Thank you for reporting the faulty behavior to us. We reproduced it successfully on our side and a defect is now logged. We will do our best to introduce a fix for it for the upcoming AppBuilder releases.

    As a small token of gratitude, I have updated your Telerik points. Thank you once again.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
