Knockout Intellisense for databinding to a specific ViewModel using Design Time Comment like in XAML
Will be in an update to VS2013
Brandon Wittwer commented
Great news that this will be implemented! My views are stored as individual HTML files and share a folder naming convention which could be used to correlate them to their companion viewmodels. They're implemented with https://github.com/ifandelse/Knockout.js-External-Template-Engine/
Either way it seems like a comment tag which can point to a namespace to find the viewModel that a view should be associated to would be perfect. Something like
<!- - ///<knockoutVM location="myapp.viewModels.ThisViewsModel" /> - ->
I'm sure there would be a better way to write the tag than my mishmash of html+js comments but you get the gist.
Thanks for all your work on Web Essentials and WebTools. I get so excited when I see that one of them is updated! Keep it up!
