Visual Web Developer Express (VWDE) 2010 is a great tool not only for developing .NET web applications, but is also excellent for editing Classic ASP files. By default, if you load a Classic ASP file into the VWDE 2010 environment, IntelliSense auto-completion and code highlighting will be turned off, leaving you with dull looking black and white un-highlighted Classic ASP code. In order to enable Classic ASP IntelliSense/Highlighting in VWDE 2010, go to Tools -> Options. Check the “Show All Settings” check box, and expand on the Text Editor, File Extension tab. In the Extension text field, type in “ASP”, select Automatic Editor Selector (XML) and click on Add. Click OK to save the changes. Load up a Classic ASP file, and presto, you now have enabled Classic ASP IntelliSense/Highlighting in Visual Web Developer Express 2010! Happy Coding!
