When I originally installed VS2012 I'm sure Intellisense worked OK but there was an update to VS2012 yesterday which seems to have removed Intellisense from the XAML editor.

The version of VS2012 Professional is 11.0.50727.1 RTMREL

I look forward to a speedy response.

Thanks for your response. By changing the Target Framework in the project's properties to .NET4 , Intellisense now works correctly.

The project was originally developed in an earlier version of VS and the target framework was set to .NET 3.5. I felt sure that Intellisense did work initially but maybe I was mistaken (which is of course, quite possible!).

Maybe this should be brought to the attention of others who are planning to upgrade to VS2012, which on initial findings is excellent.

Keep up the good work.
