Biml syntax highlighting lost upon re-opening .biml file containing embedded C# code tags <# #>
When creating new .biml constructs, if you add C# code inside <# #> tags, save, close, then re-open, the syntax highlighting is lost. This is annoying, but I've found a workaround.
1) Open the .biml file (notice that the syntax highlighting is now gone, presenting a plain black/white text)
2) Comment out the C# header references at the top before the leading <Biml> tag (see below)
<!-- <#@ template language="C#" hostspecific="true"#> <#@ import namespace="System.Data" #> --> 3) Close and re-open the .biml file (enjoy the Biml markup highlighting)
4) Un-comment C# header(s) to perform package builds
5) Re-comment C# header(s) before saving so the next time you have the syntax highlighting
