A place for my thoughts and experiences on SQL Server, Business Intelligence and .NET
One of the major criticism to DAX is the lack of a decent editor and more in general of a dedicated IDE, like the one we have for T-SQL or MDX.
Well, this is no more true. On Codeplex a very interesting an promising Visual Studio 2010 extension has been released by the beginning of November 2011:
Intellisense, Syntax Highlighting and all the typical features offered by Visual Studio are available also for DAX.
Right now you have to download the source code and compile it, and that’s it!
