Visual Studio - Accessing Smart Tags Without Design View
Jan 13, 2011
I mainly do C# ASP.NET projects in VS2010. Once you've put masterpages and other things in place, I find the design view pretty much goes grey and elements can't be selected. This isn't so bad except that sometimes you need to access the little 'smart tags' at the top right of controls to do things.
In particular I'm trying to do this with some telerik controls, though the issue isn't confined to them.
Anyone have a handy tip to access this functionality (or miraculously make design view work!) ?
PS. I read in a few places that Shift-Alt-F10 may help. I tried putting my cursor in the control's tag and using it, no luck. Also I clicked the little rectangle below design view to select the control and tried it again- no luck.
can't connect to sql 2005 express sp1 and vs is also sp1. 2) Which my guess is because of the database connection not being able... design view is not able to pull in the application for design, it's as if there is no theme and css just white background and black print.
I'm using Visual Studio 2008, and when I select/highlight something in design view and switch to source view it does not highlight and scroll to the selected item. This makes it really hard to change stuff in source view, and it's very inconvenient at worst
Split view and design view doesn't work.I installed and uninstalled Office 2003 and 2007 once but there's no office in my computer now.-I have Microsoft Studio Web Authoring Component installed.(12.0.4518.1066)(Uninstalled and installed it twice)-My computer-properties-Advenced system settings-environment variables-system variables-path is;
[code]... What is the problem,how can i fix it? I tried everything in other posts.
When I'm in Design View I can't scroll down to the bottom of some of my pages. I've scrolled down as far as I can and the bottom is cut off. This doesn't happen on all the pages. I tried increasing the height for the ContentPlaceHolder.
I am creating custom control with tabs and also giving design time support for that control. In design time I cant accessing the child controls and also tabs. I want to change the tabs at the desing time.
In VS 2005 I could change the layout appropriately, to move controls in a web form in design mode, to a place where I intend to. But in VS 2008 , I don't see such an option. My controls are stuck in places of their own and I am unable to move them to the intended locations. Googling suggested to use Tools -> option -> HTMLDesigner -> CSS. But not sure that is the correct route.
i have visual studio 2008 and ms office 2007..when i try to develop a web application in vs 2008, i didnt able to open the design view of the web page.. i can only able to see the source view..came to know by googling as, there is some compatibility issues between vs 2008 and ms office 2007 in web authoring components.
I upgraded a project from Visual Studio 2005 to 2008. Now when I'm in the design view of a dataset (an xsd file) and try to add a new column a get an error message:"Failed to add column. The server version is not supported. Only servers up to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 are supported".But if I add a column from Visual Studio 2005 to a SQL Server 2008 database it works fine.
I have a webapp with a Masterpage and 4 or so content pages. I have created a theme folder with a style sheet. I put the <pages theme="Default" in the web.config. When I run the app all the styles in the style sheet apply and it looks great. But design view does not apply the styles from my theme. Design view does not use the web.config setting or something. How do I get design view to apply the theme styles.
I've copied and pasted code/controls into the html view, and I've tried just adding them, in the design view, to the design window. Then, when I go to code behind and try to refer to the controls (textbox1, calendar1, etc) - I get blue squiggly lines and when I hover over them, I'm told the controls are not declared.I've tried rebuilding the page, the website - switching from html to design view,shutting down and reopening VS.Net 2008. Still - the same thing happens
We have three options to view any .aspx page in a tab
Design Source Split
How can we view Design and Source in separate tabs for a any aspx page ?
Or if this is impossible!! can we use split option by Vertically splitting the Design and Source ? if later one is possible, I could stretch the view onto two monitors like here as suggested by Nick Craver.
I downloaded VWD 2008 express months ago. Don't know what happened but my design view went.I have reinstalled the application several times but no success. I posted this problem on several forums and got many suggestions like uninstall office 2007, reinstall web authoring component, install n et.framework 3.5 which is not compatible with Win7 and does not install, so I have net.framework 4.0. I tried to bburn the iso file installation package, burnt it to a dvd and install it from the media, nothing.My pc is a Compaq Presario CQ61 Notebook running Win7 Home Edition.
After opening an existing proyect in visual studio 2010, the web form in design view doens't work. All server control puts a gray box with the following message : Error Creating Control - imgTransportistaSession state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive. Please also make sure that System.Web.SessionStateModule or a custom session state module is included in the <configuration><system.web><httpModules> section in the application configuration.
