One of the viewers of my Html for the XAML developer course over on Pluralsight sent me a question regarding the ability to drag and drop a d.ts file onto a TypeScript file and have the reference added correctly.
He said that when he dropped the d.ts file he was expecting to get something like:
/// <reference path="../something.d.ts" />
However, what he got was:
To be honest I was not sure what the issue was but did ask 2 questions:
- Do you have the TypeScript IDE plugin installed?
- Do you have Web Essentials installed?
Turns out he did not have Web Essentials installed, which it appears is what gives you the nice ability to drag-drop a Typescript file into your editor and have it provide the correct reference syntax. I honestly was not aware that it was Web Essentials which did this, just assumed it was part of the TypeScript plugin.
Moral of the story, if you have not already installed Web Essentials DO SO NOW…!
Till next time,
