    Anyone using visual studio .net to script InDesign?


      I've had good luck using Visual Basic 6 (COM-based, 1999) as an alternative to ExtendScript or VBScript for scripting Indsign CS4.

      I've been experimenting with the new dynamic type in C# 4.0 and have had some success in scripting Insign CS4.

      It's far from ideal - no intellisense or enumerated constants.  Have things improved with CS5?

      Has anyone else tried using .net to develop scripting apps?

      The old VB6 IDE provides great intellisense from the indesign typelibs.

      Allows for exploratory programming without have to browse endless reams of api documentation.

      Sure wish the ExtendScript IDE provided intellisense.
