    HTML5 Code hinting not working in DW CS5.5

    Steve Farwell

      I'm not getting code hinting for HTML5 tags in DW CS5.5, When I look at the Tag Library Editor there are none of the HTML5 tags in it.

      I have DW CS 5 also and code hinting works asexpected.

      I looked in  C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5\configuration\TagLibraries and the I have 211 files which is the same as in the CS5 TagLibraries.

       

      the tages are listed in the TagLibraries.vtm also.

       

      I've have HTML5 as a DocType in the new document Dialog, I also have the HTML 5  layouts listed. I have code hints enabled in Preferences

       

      I have done the Dreamweaver CS5.5 11.5.1 Updater and restarted my system.

       

      Any Ideas?

          Selecting the correct doc type is all very well but have you configured your DW to provide you the hints?  Does it work in other doc types? 

           

          I suggest look in your preferences and see if it is set up in the same way as in this picture:

          I have tried and tested this on my system and it works perfectly!

           

          Hope this helps.

            Thank you JTanna,

             

            I do have code hinting enabled in the preferences panel as stated in the original post.

            The settings are the same as dipicted in your image.

             

            Code hinting is working. The problem is I'm not getting code hinting for the HTML5 elements, ie header, canvas, video etc.

              Are you saying that none of these tags are recognized by your system?

               

              <article>

              <aside>

              <audio>

              <canvas>

              <color>

              <command>

              <datalist>

              <date>

              <datetime>

              <datetime-local>

              <details>

              <email>

              <embed>

              <figcaption>

              <figure>

              <footer>

              <header>

              <hgroup>

              <keygen>

              <mark>

              <meter>

              <month>

              <nav>

              <number>

              <output>

              <placeholder>

              <progress>

              <range>

              <rp>

              <rt>

              <ruby>

              <search>

              <section>

              <source>

              <summary>

              <tel>

              <time>

              <time>

              <url>

              <video>

              <wbr>

              <week>

               

              You can check this by going to your tag libraries folder or by trying to insert these codes in the library.  In the picture I have given above, the last line (above the three buttons) gives you the place to insert the codes.  I suggest try inserting one or two tags and see if it works.

               

              If it works then provided you have already applied the new DW patch, your installation appears to be broken.

               

              this is very serious indeed and Adobe needs to be given a feedback on this.

                None of the tags  were showing.

                 

                I tried adding the tags in the tag editor and added tags work, but I would hae to add all the attribute to the each tag (not a good solution)

                 

                I was able to fix it by:

                1. Shutting down DW

                2. renaming  the TagLibraries.vtm in  C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5\configuration\TagLibraries to TagLibraries_bak.vtm

                3. start DW (Look in Edit>TagLibraries) all tags gone.

                4. Shutting down DW

                5.  renaming  TagLibraries_bak.vtm  back to TagLibraries.vtm

                6. Start DW Everything woking !

                 

                Not sure why this worked, I was expecting a new TagLibraries.vtm to be created , very odd, I had the same problem with my laptop as well and fixed it the same way

                  Thanks Steve for the feedback.  This is something to look out for if somebody else has the same problem.
