Is there a way to make VS2005 || 2008 web developer recognize ASP classic (.asp) files?
It would be nice if I could get intellisense and tool boxes to work.
If not, can you suggest another IDE for the ASP files?

Thanks,
Roger

I don't think there is Intellisense for classic ASP.  Since you have the tools available, is it not possible to convert the site to ASP.Net?  

That said, you're probably using the best tools available already.

If you have vs2008 sp1 intellisense should work, not sure about toolboxes though

Thanks guys.

Paul, I am using the classic because I'm working on getting a job as web developer where they still use it. I was pretty good at it back in 2003 time frame, but have not worked with it much since.

Jacko, I will try your suggestion w/ 2008 sp1.

Also are there templates that can be used for asp in VS?

I don't recall seeing any classic ASP templates in Visual Studio, but there may be some stuff in Frontpage (if you can find a copy!).

Thanks for the help!  I used both of your comments to get up to speed on the solutions. I am moving up to asp.net platform and converting the older programs.

Thanks Both!

Happy to help.  I think you'll find the conversion pretty easy (I had to do the same thing myself), depending on the size of the site.  Best of luck.
