Enabling Visual Studio Browser Link

In Visual studio 2013, When you work on design pages (html) closely with Browser, you might experience “Browser Link” feature is not working.

Use of Browser Link,

  • List out all the connected browsers
  • Without going to browser for every time to see the changes to Html page, simply “Ctrl+Alt+Enter” will do refresh work for you by simply being in visual studio itself.

This post will help you to enable “Browser Link” Feature in Visual Studio 2013.

By default, Browser link will be enabled by including the below script line at end of <body></body> 

  • (/_vwd/js/artery) and make sure that appsettings for browser link is set to true.

<!–Enabling Browser Link–>
<add key=”vs:EnableBrowserLink” value=”true”/>

  • Static HTML pages can be linked by adding
    <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests=”true”/>
  • Final thing is keep in mind that before debugging just ensure that
    <compilation debug=”true”/> is set to true.

Yay!!! That’s it. There we go.
