If you use Team Explorer and auto check out by typing in a source file IntelliSense might die. This happens to me when the objects you want to use are outside of the current project but not in the .NET framework. Best solution is to restart the IDE and things might be normal again.
Visual Studio 2008 is still dumb to when xaml source code needs to be recompiled. When changes are made to the xaml code and you want to run it under the debugger the IDE should recompile the code for you. Guess what, it doesn’t. This was also a problem I had with the Visual Studio 2005 Orcas Plugin (or whatever it was called).
The VS Orcas team thinks there pretty slick, now when you change a line of xaml and don’t recompile the IDE will tell you there is an exception. This is great when you want to check for them, but not when you are editing code! How do these guys think up this stuff. One of the first things they should of done is stopped the IDE from crashing from bad or even good xaml code. Now I face the problem that one of my usercontrols crashes the IDE when another application try's to load it. The usercontrol works fine during run time but crashes during editing time! This usercontrol is very simple, three rectangles and one line.. This might be too much for the new powerful Orcas IDE to handle! Remember just to press ESC when ever loading the designer part of Visual Studio Orcas, because it tends never to work.
