Editing Xmls with intellisense in Visual Studio

Am I the last person in the world to realise that? hopefully not!...

...but I've just realised today that if you edit an xml file in visual studio and you have the schema of the xml you're editing open in another tab it will recognise it (as soon as you type the root node and namespace) and will provide intellisense.

I knew you could tell it to use a schema, but I did not realise it will automatically include opened documents. brilliant feature!

  • If you are working on the project/solution containing the schema, you dont even have to open the schema on another tab.

  • Geez, I didn't know all of that, how could I have missed it?

    Thanks for the comment Yair.
