Nested with statement bug with Intellisense

I have noticed a bug with Visual Interdev:

try this

*****************SAMPLE PAGE*******************
<HTML>
<BODY>
<FORM NAME = "form">
<INPUT TYPE=BUTTON NAME="button" VALUE="CLICK ME">
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

*************************************************

try creating a script:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JAVASCRIPT>
with (window.document)
   {
   with (form)
      {
      <CODE GOES HERE>
      }
   }


try typing anything in the area <CODE GOES HERE> that would use Intellisense (an alert box, for example).

The result?  Interdev crashes.

Anyone know of a fix for this?

My only workaround is to comment out the second with statement, write the code, uncomment, save and run.

Hmm...how to shut it off....if I am not mistaking there should be an option for that somewhere...I will look it up for you when I have access to a computer with VI again....

Reporting bugs to Microsoft can be done from their knowledgebase....when you cannot find the answer to your question they provide a link there (as far as I remember) that will allow you to do so...but the feedback sucks so it doesn't really help at all...

That's the problem of InterDev...it's Intellisense is nice to start out with, but as soon as you start nesting it gets confused...sometimes this means it crashes....sounds like the way you work around this is the best way possible...sorry to say but InterDev is not that good with it's intellisense...

That was not what I was hoping to hear :->

OK, then.. how do I shut the damned thing off?  

Oh, yes.. and how do I report bugs to Microsoft?

I get a crash also, W2K Pro SP2 Interdev SP5.  This bug is real annoying, it's like the old days of DOS where the crashes lose all your work.

My suspicion is this is a W2K bug rather than an Interdev bug, I saw crashes on W2K I never saw using Interdev on W98.

I keep hoping MS will fix this, when Interdev crashes I always wonder why I stick with this product.

you could also try:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JAVASCRIPT>
var objFrm = window.document.formName;
// you can access the form elements by using objFrm.elementName... etc.
<CODE GOES HERE>
</script>

instead of
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JAVASCRIPT>
with (window.document)
  {
  with (form)
     {
     <CODE GOES HERE>
     }
  }

------------------------------------------
I have been looking at this again, and found that there is NOT an option for turning intellisense off...so all d_jedi can do is just accept the limitations of Visual Interdev and live with that. I have looked all over newsgroups and MSDN and more, nowhere there is a reference for turning of Intellisense...which is stupid as it IS possible in VB and VC++...
