Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-08-06 12:28:13 UTC
Opening the Views/Home/Index.aspx in a new ASP.NET MVC project hangs MD.

This can be worked around by removing the "attributes" match from the "InTag" rule of AspNetSyntaxMode.xml.

However, AspNetSyntaxMode.xml has not changed in two years, so this looks like a regression in the highlighting engine.

Seems to work for me:


Which mono version are you using - maybe it's a regression in the regex engine ?
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-08-22 12:37:06 UTC
The released 2.10.9.

To repro, just create a new ASP.NET MVC project and open the Views/Home/Index.aspx file.

Tried again today - I got it reproduced. But as you see in the screencast it worked for me a while ago ...
