No intellisense?

How do you get the intellisense to work?

I have downloaded the sdk, extracted the v1.9 reduced version, added the dll as a reference in my project, added an imports statement for Ionic, but only the top level namespaces ({}zip & {}zlib) are available, what am I doing wrong?

Using VB 2005

Actually the Classes, Properties, methods etc are there, but I have to precede them with the root namespace i.e. " zip." so the examples  such as

"Using zip as ZipFile = New Zipfile"

would not work, I have to add the zip namespace like this:

"Using zip As Zip.ZipFile = New Zip.ZipFile"

Can someone explain why?

Do you have an Import statement for the Ionic library at the top of your .vb file? 

if so, what does it say?  Does it say "Imports Ionic.Zip"  ?  If it says "Imports Ionic" then that may be an explanation for why the classes are not available without preceding with Zip.  To fix, add the .Zip to the imports statement.

Just an idea. I don't have VB2005 and cannot test myself.

Well that was easy :-)

Just had to add the .zip to the import statement
