Squiggles vs Resharper

Squiggles for C# will be available in Service Pack 1 of Visual Studio 2008.

The big question for me is how it will cooperate with Resharper. Will be have a race condition where Resharper and Squiggles do simultaneous error checking and fight to be the first one to notify us? How about the possible overlap of rules?

I hope that the VS team is aware of tools like Resharper, and is not working in the typical isolationist-mode that is prevalent in Microsoft.

Yes the Visual Studio team is obviously aware of Resharper and it will be possible to disable the built-in squiggles through the Options dialog. This is similar to how other "overlap" features work.
