Your opinion: Are CSS friendly Adapters dead in 2010?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 
What do you think? Is it wise to start to use CSS Friendly adapters at this point (2010) with these observations in mind: VS2010 and .Net4 are coming and may offer something new MVC is an option if you really want to manage your page layout Microsoft is not involved with CSSFA The codeplex project seems to be sleeping along It's been 4 years since it started   Is there a better way to get control of the HTML emitted by ASP.Net controls? I for one  am fed up with wrestling with the failures of browsers to handle the table code properly (e.g. applying classes) yet I am fearful of going down the CSS road when it seems so stale. What do you think? Your recommendation?

are the "CSS Friendly Control Adapters" being used in ASP.NET 3.5 and above?

  

I am a long time ASP.NET developer, but have just encountered the issue of CSS vs Tables in a deep manner (so far I have just used the built-in controls or just created my own controls).

I bought a great book on this issue, but the book is reffering the ASP.NET 2.0 via VS2005.

I am using ASP.NET 3.5 and above via VS2008/2010.

My first question is: are the "CSS Friendly Control Adapters" still alive in 2010 or maybe there are a new techniques being used?

My second question is:  are the "CSS Friendly Control Adapters" being used in ASP.NET 3.5 and above via VS2008/VS2010?

I will appreciate your help and advise.

Cant find vsi file for CSS Friendly Control Adapters

  

Hi guys

This is driving me crazy... I cant find the .vsi file for installing the CSS Friendly Control Adapters Project. Does anyone know where I can get this?

The following link: http://www.asp.net/cssadapters/ only leads to the CodePlex wiki where I can download the dll and a partial solution. Essentially, I'm looking for the source code to implement the Menu adapter.

Any help is much appreciated!


Css Friendly Adapters - asp.net Horizontal Menu - IE6

  

Hi,

Hopefully someone can help.

I have an asp.net menu with horizontal static top tier followed by 2 dynamic vertical lower tiers.

It renders fine in all other browsers etc. etc. - apart from IE6.

In IE6 the menu is not rendered horizontally and insttead the items are stacked vertically.

It is my understanding that when using horizontal orientation, the menu items are effectively floated next to each other. 

So I can get round this float problem in IE6 by specifying a width for the items i.e.:

 

*html .AdminMenu .AspNet-Menu-Horizontal ul.AspNet-Menu li
{
	width: 45px;
	text-align: left;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
}

Problem is, I do not want to set the width for each item. If I do this then it means regardless of the length of the text the width will always be the same.

On other browsers I do not set a width but instead set left/right margin so that every item is evenly spaced.

How can I do this in IE6? Essentially each li should wrap the text and float nex

Addressing a specific node with CSS Friendly Control Adapters

  

Hello everybody,


I like the concept of the friendly control adapters, but I'm not sure if I can use them for my purpose.
My whole menu basically consist of one image, which itself contains the images for each menu item (is that understandable?).

Each menu item then displays only a certain part of the image.
I do this by shifting the background-position.

#navigation li#home a{
background-position:0px 0px;
}


/* Registration */
#navigation li#registration a:link, li#registration a:visited {
background-position:-106px -34px;
}

#navigation li#registration a:hover, li#registration a:focus {
background-position:-106px 0px;
}

/* Administration */
#navigation li#administration a:link, li#administration a:visited{
background-position:-212px -34px;
}

#navigation li#administration a:hover, li#administration a:focus{
background-position:-212px 0px;

}

I would like to do the same now with CSS Friendly, but I don't see how I can address each individual menu item node.
In static HTML I can give each link an ID (i.e. #administration), but I don't see how to do this with the asp:Menu control and CSS Friendly.

Can someone help me?

Thanks a lot,
Thorsten



web.config - adding css friendly adapters to existing website

  
Hi Forum,  Please help me with the major headache I've wasted hours trying to figure out!  I have done everything explained in the tuturial to add css friendly adaters to an existing site and still no luck.  I am thinking that it has to do with modifying my current web.config file to use the css adapters.  Problem is, I can't find any specific instructions as to what I have to do to the current web.config file to make the site compatible with the css adapters!  I tried to modify the config file based on what on the example, but nothing seems to work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks, D

Newbie needs help to compile CSS Friendly Control Adapters

  

I use VB.NET and create Website Projects (not Web Application Projects). Up to now, I have had little need to understand much about the compilation processes in VS2010.

However, to make use of the CSS Friendly Control Adapters it would appear that I have to compile the source code into a CSSFriendly.dll file. I would appreciate some detailed guidance on how to achieve this.

CSS friendly menu adapters and the iPhone

  

Hi

I have just built a horizontal menu with dropdowns using the CSS Friendly Adapters and it all works great. However, thought I'd test the site using the iPhone. The menu appears across the screen as it should, and the top layer links work. But when I hover/click on an item that has items below the dropdown does not appear.

any ideas why that is happening, could it be to with the friendly browsers file?

Cheers Rob.

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

  
This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

  
.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET AJAX
.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

  
Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.

VB and C# enhancements in VS 2010

  
In Visual Studio 2010, we've made several enhancements to our two most popular languages, Visual Basic and C#, to give programmers all the tools they need to build great software no matter which language they prefer.

The Visual Basic team focused on adding productivity features to the language so developers can get more done in fewer lines of code. The most common customer request for Visual Basic is to remove the underscore ("_") character when breaking a code statement across multiple lines in most cases. Visual Basic 10 introduces implicit line continuation, which removes the need for the underscore character in most cases.

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

  
When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

VS 2010 and .NET 4 Series

  
VS 2010 and .NET 4 are the next major releases of our developer tools and framework. Together they contain a ton of new functionality and improvements that I think you'll really like, and which make building applications of all types easier, faster and better. The improvements range from nice small tweaks to major, major enhancements - and can be found across the .NET Framework, the languages, and the IDE.

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

  
Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.
