Getting intellisense in XML files from a C# DLL

P: n/a
Hi,
I am developing an application where the scripts are written in the XML
files. The application parses them and creates required CS files and
runs them. The application has set of APIs that are used in the XML
scripts.

While writing the XML scripts, there is no intellisense available. I
want to have intellisense in the XML editor for a particular dll. Is
that possible? Does VS support it? Or are there any other editors that
have this functionality?

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Avanti Ketkar

Thanks David.

Here is a real problem:

The XML I am scanning has some C# code in the text of some tags. For
example:

<xml>
.....
<code>
Console.WriteLine("Text");
/// Some more functions that come from our DLL

</code>
.....
</xml>

The part where I want the intellisense is inside the code tag - for the
text part. So when I type Console. it should pop up list of its members
and similarly for other classes. Is there a way to get intellisense
inside the tags and not for the tags from the xsd.

Thanks,
Avanti
