sharepoint xml intellisense

While we are working with Sharepoint xml files like Feature.xml, Elements.xml or ONET.xml files we wont get any intellicense by default.

But for any developer it is hard to remember all these information. So, here is the easiest way to get the intellisence

1. Open your xml file in Visual studio.

2. Go to properties pane of the xml file and click on schema and browse for the file.

3. locate file named "wss.xsd" from C:/Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/12/TEMPLATE/XML/wss.xsd

Note : this file will have all the xml defined functions which is easily recognized by the visual studio.

Then you will get the intellisece for the sharepoint solution..
