How To Properly Design User Interfaces With Controls On Visual Studio
Apr 11, 2012
Is there any resource out there , where one can learn how to properly design user interfaces with ASP.NET controls on Visual Studio ?I have tried on my own by adding <asp:Table/> to form and then trying to accomodate panels within <asp:TableCell/> controls but that isn't quite going the way I imagined it would.This may not be the right way to design UIs, but I don't know any better for now.
suppose i've created my own user control, and it has a textbox and a property for the textbox so that if i use the user control from within the aspx file, i can give the property a value. for example:
is it possible to also set the property to be seen via the desing mode , just as it works for other (built in) controls? maybe a different method to implement the same scenario?
if you still didn't understand what i mean : after setting the value of DefaultNum1 via the code i've written here, i expect the textbox associated with this property to be updated as well to '1' via the design mode (and split mode). of course it won't work using the current method, since VS cannot guess what is going on with the property and understand that all of its purpose is to assign an initialization value for the textbox.
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.
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'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
The method GetDesignTimeHtml of the ControlDesigner class should return html markup that will be shown on the page in design time. My problem is that control looks different in different versions of the visual studio. What is the rendering engine visual studio use to render control in design mode?
I installed the AJAX Toolkit (for .NET4) onto a new Toolbox tab in Visual Studio 2010. However, when I try to drag any of these controls onto my Web form in design mode, they won't stick. My mouse pointer changes to 'disabled' (a circle with a diagonal line thru the middle) as soon as it hovers anywhere over my target form. Is there some additional action I need to take to make VS "recognize" these AJAX Toolkit controls?
Yesterday I was working on a development laptop from home on a web app. When I finished I checked everything in to TFS as normal. When I came in to the office today I got the latest version from source explorer in VS2008 then opened the solution... and the website is not there. There is a website project, but instead of the project name it has the location, and a folder whose name looks like a GUID. The other DLL projects loaded as expected. None of the web site files are there.
Were this a windows app I'd open the project files in a text editor to look for paths that had got lost, but I can't see how to do this for a web project.
Unfortunately the development laptop is still at home, so I'm hoping there's a way to fix this without needing it...
I am attempting to debug my Visual Studio 2005 project. I have Internet explorer 8 and it's running on IIS.
When I hit the "debug" button, a new Internet Explorer browser window opens and my ASP VB .NET application loads normally. However, Visual studio returns back to regular editting mode and I can hit the "debug" button again. No break points hit but my web page still runs and loads normally.
The Output screen use to show Web.Server(exit 0) but now it doesn't show anything.
how to do this.or is there any template that one can use for the following-
using visual studio to design questions and answers with outcome of the grade immediately after submition and with timing.
For example, having questions 1 to 10, providing options like A, B, C,D, then let students choose from the right answer from the questions, then, after submition, an outcome of grade is displayed based on the right answer.
Visual Studio ( VSTS 2008 ) design mode work good for long time and from about 2 weeks ago it's suddenly stop view any thing in design mode i tried a lot with trying in another projects even in a simple web page but no way it's doesn't view any thing in design mode ... I think to reinstall VS 2008 again but I don't know if is there any outher solution for that ?
As far I know this is not supported for asp.net projects. It's quite handy for testing static/shared functions.any info if this will be available in future versions? Or if there are any alternative ways to test your functions in design mode?
This error only happens when I launch an existing application, if I create a new app the error does not appear on that site. However if I try to enter Design mode the Windows Installer opens and hangs. I can still edit the code and even launch the app.
If I click "OK", I get a dialog box that starts a Windows Installer that does not install anything, it justs sits there. If I "cancel" the installer, VWDE dies.
The only thing different on my laptop is that I had Office 2007 Trial installed along side Office 2003 before I installed VWD, I then uninstalled the trial and used the clean-up tool at [URL] to clean up the trial.
I have tried to repair VWDE, I have uninstalled and reinstalled VWDE with no change. Ialso have VB Express running and get no errors when launching it.
