I am a 'newbie' to VWD and I am slowly working through the Basic Walkthrough Help files, and learning plenty along the way.
However, when I tried to create a new database in the LINQ control walkthrough I found that the option to create a new database is missing, and further investigation has found that many other new item templates are missing.
I am using a brand new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate and have enabled IIS and .NET from Control Panel-Programs-Turn Windows Features On-Off. I used the WPI to install all basic elements eg. IIS Components, SQL Server Express.
The only 'new item templates' I have when I right-click the App_Data Folder and choose 'new item' are:-
ADO.NET Data Service
AJAX Enabled WCF Service
Dynamic Data Field
SQL Server Database
Does anyone know where I have gone wrong.

It's easy to create a custom control in ASP.NET by deriving a new class from an already existing control. Creating a new ASP.NET control from scratch, on the other hand, is more challenging. When you need a Web server control and none of the existing ones meet your requirements, you can derive from one of the base classes - Control or WebControl. Try it out.

In the .NET Framework, the CodeDOM object model can represent code in a variety of languages. This article examines how source code templates written with the Framework's System.CodeDom and System.CodeDom.Compiler namespaces allow developers to create reusable boilerplate source code that can be shared between projects. Components designed via templates improve productivity and shorten development time.Here C++-style classes and templates are simulated and code is generated in multiple languages through the creation of CodeDOM object graphs. Compiling object graphs and formatting output code are also explained.
