I am using VS 2010 Ultimate.  It is not remembering my setup when opening .xaml files.  It is very annonying.  I  am pretty sure VS remembers things like that.

I prefer to load my .xaml file to see the code only.  So I usually minimize the design tab.  However, I have to do this every time I open a .xaml file.

I am getting the feeling this setting is stored at the .sln level, which is even more annonying, it should be global setting for all VS sessions.

Any advice?

Add tooltip to ASP.NET Datapager

Here is the sample code of javascript and data pager.

ASP.NET pager doesn't provide any direct support for adding tooltip to its different buttons . But there are some work arounds through which you can provide tooltips to ASP.NET data pager.

The structure of a simple data pager is as follows:


RenderDisabledButtonsAsLabels="true" ShowFirstPageButton="true" ShowPreviousPageButton="true"
ShowLastPageButton="false" ShowNextPageButton="false" />
NextPreviousButtonCssClass="command" />
RenderDisabledButtonsAsLabels="true" ShowFirstPageButton="false" ShowPreviousPageButton="false"
ShowLastPageButton="true" ShowNextPageButton="true" />

But How ever it provides CSS classes for all set of buttons. And in the page it is rendered as simple span and anchor link. If we are giving some unique class to all buttons present in the data pager and through javascript we can retrive the elements and we can assign Tool Tip to

Web Deployment with IIS settings of remote server


Im trying to deploy a web application project (VS 2010) via team build (TFS 2010), i got to use IIS settings of development server for deployment. So from the project properties I configured the web projects to use Custom web server, (enabled radio button), once i do this the Option in the tab Package/Publish Web "Include all IIS Settings as configured in IIS manager" gets disabled and as a result the deployed web project does not have this IIS settings.

What am I missing here, Im not using the option "Use local IIS Web Server" because the build happens in a build server and would try to take local IIS settings for packaging which is not present.

If this is not possible, suggest me any workaround. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
