Web Forms :: Putting A Control On An Aspx Page And Double-clicking In Design View To Create VB Page?
Apr 22, 2010
I've always depended on putting a control on an aspx page and double-clicking in design view to create my VB page. But this isn't happening in my current project. It creates an inline script in my aspx page instead. Where is the option or preference or XML file or.... that controls this?
I am developing on my local machine, therefore my url is http://localhost/<VirtualDirectory>/ My site is hosted at http://www.<DomainName>.com
For example: my link to css file is <link href="/styles/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> This works fine on on the public site, but breaks on the dev machine because of the addition of the virtual directory level.
I want to add a key to my config file to manage the current location of the site: <add key="CurrentServerLocation" value="http://localhost/<VirtualDirectory>/"/> or
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.
We have two installs of VS 2008. One on a machine that previously had 2005 installed and one on a new [clean] machine with no previous Visual Studio install.The clean machine install went fine, however when we open an aspx page in design view the layout is "scrunched" up. In source view the text matches the text in source view [of a copy of the same aspx page].In design view on the 2005/2008 VS installed machine, the layout is fine.Layout on the page is done in a "Table", with various text boxes, buttons, gridviews.
And just to reiterate, the aspx file in design view [using VS 2008 SP1] on the machine that has VS 2005/2008 installedlooks fine, no problem.The same page loaded in design view on the clean machine with VS 2008 SP1 installed is "scrunched" up.For example the gridview that should be at the top right of the page is in left-center of the page and the gridview that should be at the bottom-center of the page is also at the left-center, directly on top of the gridview that should be at the top right sideof the page.Have compared the config of VS 2008 on both machines and can't find a problem!
But when i go to Design View of the page (for creating the events automatically or for drag/drop any new control from toolbox, I don't want to type everything) the design view only shows the master page! the page controls are complete ignored!
In my company we use a control that renders the <link rel="stylesheet"> tags dynamically at runtime (equivalent of scriptmanager who renders <script> tags dynamically). this control is very good, cause it select the appropriate css stylesheets depending on some criterias. The problem is that on design time for Visual Studio there is no designated CSS stylecheet since there is no <link rel="stylesheet"> tags on the page.
If I put <link rel="stylesheet"> tags on the aspx page (to indicate a design time stylesheet) this tag will be rendered to client and it causes conflicts with tags rendered by the control !
Every time I create a new aspx page and add some new photos and text, after I finish, I have to update page title, Web.sitemap, Sitemap.xml to feed search engines, static sitemap.aspx page, add photos to proper folders, update database to display feeds etc, and I have to remember to upload all new files including links to any new pdfs....This routine eats my time and drives me crazy.
I was wondering if there is such interface, where you need to create only 1 aspx page, for example "Articles" which can populate Texts, photos etc into pre-defined sections, but at the same time it displays with different URL's, so there is a permanent link to it. After you finish it creates a title automatically, based on article title, populates Web.sitemap - does all the dirty work. Similar to how blog engines, Joomla and Drupal work.
I am wondering if it is possible (for as little money as possible) to create a web page that when a user clicks the submit button saves a file as a PDF. it is going to be used as a purchase order creator on a webpage. I have seen a few tutorials around but they seem to use software that requires purchasing a license.
I noticed a behaviour in Visual Studio that the design tab for aspx page does not work if I use a dynamic master page using a base page. I dynamically set the master page to implement theming. It shows a master page error and says "The page has controls that require a Master Page reference, but none is specified".
Is there any solution? Or any work around?
I currently set the base/master page to a default master page in the page for myself and work on the page. Once I complete the page, I remove the master page attribute. I wanted to know if some better method is available.
My Question is related to access the rows in one page and putting conditions in another page.I need to check whether a datagrid has row in it or not. DataGrid is in .aspx page. Based on this checking i need to write a condition in .ascx page.the .ascx on which condition is checked is linked to .aspx page. Meaning that UserControl1.ascx is Register with Default.aspx pageI am using VS 2003let me know if any input is needed from my side.
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 have a problem with the control on my page. I have a gridview on my page and when I viewed it on my computer, it doesn't go out of the edge of the page but when I view it on other computer, it went out of the border. Why is it like that? Is is about screen resolution?
I have asp.net web site which has master page ajax and css file....
I have change masterpage and change master page reference in each page to new masterpage name. then i open aspx page and open in design view no problem i can see new lay out colours and images, when i right click on file name and click on view on browser page open in IE but not images no styles. try on Firefox same problem.
I have a very strange problem with my website... I created a rather large page, consisting of a few tables with some labels and textboxes where the user can enter a mechanical car setup (it's for a racing game).
When I put a couple of these boxes on a page it works just fine, I can only enter numbers. For it to work though I need to add the script to the page and I do that using this line, either in the head content or in the body content controls:
(the path is chosen with the 'Pick URL' dialog so it should be alright, and it does indeed need to go up two directories first as the page is in the '~/Pages/RequireLogon" directory) However, after replacing most of the textboxes on my large page with NumericBoxes, and adding this script line to my aspx code, the design view is 'broken'. I cannot see any of my controls anymore, and I cannot even put any new controls on there. It seems like the Content control is missing, even though it's still there just fine without errors in the aspx code.
When I remove the script line, the problem is fixed again, the controls re-appear. So it's definitely the script line causing the problem, but I cannot see how it could...I tried it with a new blank page and the problem appears there too. If I use this simple page with just a button:
How can I build a query in a new page using the value from a prevous pages control's value. I can transfer the value to the new page, I just don't know how to use the passed value to build a query. I want to populate a data grid filtering with values obtained from the proveous page.
Not sure if this is for SQL or .net! I have 3 tables which looks like
table1 ID Name 1 Jon
table2 ID Number Job 1 1 IT 2 1 Web 3 1 Admin
table1 ID ContractType 1 Temp 1 Perm
An inner join makes one table with 3 rows (I excluding the ID from table 2 for the join) which is saved as a view
viewTable ID Name Number Job ContractType 1 Jon 1 IT Temp 2 Jon 1 Web Temp 3 Jon 1 Admin Temp 4 Jon 1 IT Perm 5 Jon 1 Web Perm 6 Jon 1 Admin Perm
I want to display these results on a web page via the grid view. However, I don't want to show the user 6 times! I want to show the user name once, the contract type once and each Job! What is the best way to do this? Is there a fault with the database design already? I assume the easiest answer is to not join them in a view but query each section 3 times from the website but I'd rather 1 connection only!
