Why Is "use Custom Server" Option Disabled In Visual Studio 2010
May 6, 2010
I have DotnetNuke loaded in Visual studio 2010. The 'use custom server' option under 'Start Options' is disabled. Why is it disabled?
What does 'Use Default Web server' default to? How do I change what the default is?
In earlier versions of VS i was able to switch between IIS and the internal web server (Cassini). Now it's more confusing in VS 2010!
Would the project type, Web Application Project vs Web Site project, affect the setting?
I just recently upgrade my asp.net web project from visual studio 2005 to visual studio 2010. The upgrade was successful with no problems however im missing some features with this project. The One Click Publish feature(which is greyed out) in the header area of Visual Studio 2010 and the Add Config Transforms feature which is no where to be seen when you right click on web.config. When i create a new web project straight from visual studio 2010, these options work fine.
Im working on a website project with Visual Studio 2010 from 2 different computers (home & work). In Dreamweaver Im used to FTP to upload/download files to/from a webserver to syncronice my files on the current computer Im working on.What is best option in Visual Studio 2010 to sync project files between home & work computers? I have seen there is a built in FTP, but seems only it can upload files, limited functionality?
i installed Visual Studio 2010 Trial on Microsoft Site (install successfull)My Computer OS: Windows Server 2008 SP2I create WebApplication Project --> Default.aspx --> Design --> Toolbox --> Oh what ???? The Control ScriptManager is fail and UpdatePanel, ListView... too. :-S
I'll be debugging a site in Visual Studio 2010 and editing an *.aspx or *.ascx file, and without warning, it will lock up so that I can't edit it. There's no message or anything, I just can't type or make any changes. The only way to start editing again is to stop debugging, close the editing window, and then find whatever file I was working on and reopen it. It's a huge pain in the you-know-what. My colleagues are experiencing the same thing, so it's apparently not something with my particular setup. What's the explanation, and how can we make it stop?
Note 1: I've reported this to Microsoft here. If you've experienced this as well, please go there and vote up the bug report.
Note 2: This is not VSS-related, at least in my case. We use VisualSVN, which doesn't use file-system-level locking to mark files as checked out.
This question has probably been answered before, when adding a new web form, I do not see an option that allows you to place code in a seperate file for a project (it does it automatically). But for websites, I see the option. Am I missing some option?
I'm on Windows 7, x64, with Visual Studio 2010.I have an ASP.NET page with C#. The C# makes a call to PowerShell, it fails, and every post I can find via Google says the solution is simple --- set your Target Build to x86. Sounds awesome, except I can't. My only choice is "Any PC", and even if I add a new configuration and call it "x86", I can't apply it to my Project.
I tried to install Visual Studio Prof 2010 trail version in my system, but i got an error saying 'Please remove/uninstall Visual Studio 2010 load test controller' to proceed installation. i uninstalled my previous VS2008 software from system and i could not find anything like 'Remove/Uninstall Visual Studio 2010 load test controller' software in my Add/Remove Programs.
I have a clean installation of Windows 7 with VS2010 RTM and am trying to get the ASP.NET Development Server to work. When I run the project, the WebDev server starts and shows that it's listening on port x on localhost. I've tried:telnet to the port. The port is not listening. running netstat -o shows that the WebDev server is in fact not listening on any port. manually changing the WebDev port to a different port and restarted VS without effect. I have Windows Firewall turned off entirely and am not running any other firewall software either.
I run the start debugging option...it runs successfully. but still is shows start debugging option is shown in the Visual studio 2005 IDE. And one more problem is ::I applied break points in one page and run the application. but those break points are not detected....
I'm trying to implement a custom filter template for all text based searches and running into problems constructing the query. I've been following the instructions posted on this blog but not sure how change the GetQueryable method to perform a WHERE columnAttribute LIKE '%something%'query. In the example on the blog the expression is an equality which works if the text I enter exactly matches the text in the database column.
At the moment I'm using the new QueryExtender feature along with the SearchExpression control but this requires creating several custom pages for all the tables I need text search functionality for. I would like to DRY this up by creating the custom filter template.
I have a problem with CascadingDropDown... I have two related comboboxes, where the second is a slave of the first (e.g. country the first, cities the second). What I want is that if I select one country from combobox 1 then the second must be "filtered" by that selection (it should display all the cities inside the selected country, and the actual CascadingDropDown implementation is OK), but if I leave the combobox 1 in the default option (e.g. "Please select a country") I want the second to display all the cities I have in the database. The problem is that when selecting default option for combobox 1 the second combobox is disabled and a postback to my webservice never occurs.
I have a simple HttpHandler that generates a dynamic image based on query string parameters and a custom web control that renders an image tag pointing to the handler as its 'src' attribute. All works fine when run in the web server, but at design timethe control displays as the "missing image" icon (red x in a box). The handler is registered in the web.config with a ".ashx" extension. The RenderContents method in the control looks like this:
I've installed visual studio 2010 full version and worked on couple of assignments. Right now, I'd want to connect to SQL server database to move ahead and store and retrieve data into the database. Can someone please point me in theright direction or walk me through the configuration. I see sql server 2008 has come with Visual Studio 2010. Not really sure if i need to install anything else. Also, post a sample application code to connect and fetch data using a select statement ??
I want to use SQL Server 2008 Web Edition with Visual Studio 2010 Professional. (Both are installed fine on Windows 7).I know I can change the entry in Data Connection (in VS Options) to the named instance of my Web Edition but, when I do this then try to add a database to an App_Data folder (via Add New Item...) I get an error saying I need the Express version of SqlServer 2005 or 2008 (I opted NOT to install this during installation as I knew I'd be using the full Web Edition instead).
I CAN add a data connection to a database created in the Web Edition instance by Sql Server Management Studio so VS can use the Web Edition instance.So, if I've changed the Data Connection to the Web Edition instance, why can't I add a database using that instance to my App_Data folder? Can I ONLY add Express instance databases to this folder?
I am trying to add a database using VS2010, I have VS2010 Professional and SQL server 2008 developer and sql server 2008 express and it seems impossible for me to create a database am being sent to the linkid=125883 to download an express edition even though i have it installed.
