Visual Studio .NET: Building Windows Forms Controls and Components with Rich Design-Time Features, P


This is the second of two articles discussing the extremely rich design-time features of the .NET Framework. Part 1 discussed the basics, showing you where to start and how to extend your control implementation through attributes and interfaces, as well as their effects on the property browser, code serialization, and other controls. Part 2 continues the journey by concentrating on design-time functionality that you can implement beyond your components and controls, including TypeConverters, UITypeEditors, and Designers. It would be impossible to cover everything you can do in two short articles, which is a testament to just how all-encompassing and flexible the design-time capability of the .NET Framework is.

Visual Studio .NET: Building Windows Forms Controls and Components with Rich Design-Time Features


Visual Studio .NET provides support for designing rich features into your controls and components, allowing you to set properties, set form placement, inherit from base classes, and much more. So how does Visual Studio .NET do all this? What does the Windows Forms designer do? What's the difference between a control and a component? How does Visual Studio integrate your controls so that they can access features of the .NET Framework?In this article, the authors answer these common questions by building a clock control and taking the reader along for the ride. In building the control, hosts and containers are illustrated, the property browser is explained, debugging is discussed, and a general overview of the design-time infrastructure is presented.

Add in & controls to visual studio 2010



I am developing with visual studio 2010, using ajax controls. Most of the time, I need to develop web tool

that create customize reports. I do not really want to use the report from SQL. Actually I create all kind of gridview with sorting, paging, export to excel feature, etc...

Because I have so many tools to create I wish I had great controls and add ins to be more productive.

Developing mobile web applications with Visual Studio 2008 and ASP.NET Mobile Controls

I have seen a lot of posts in this forum concerning the question how to develop mobile web applications with Visual Studio 2008. In VS 2008 the templates for Mobile Web Forms are missing and there is no more designer support for ASP.NET Mobile Controls. In the Your Websites, Our Passion! blog you can download a ZIP file with the templates compiled by Omar Kahn. And I found another interesting blog post about the Microsoft Mobile Device Platforms with a discussion when Mobile Controls should be used and when not.

Visual Studio 2008 Failing to Add New Controls into *.designer.cs

I've encountered a situation with my current project where, when I add a new control, VS2008 is not adding it into the associated Designer file.  This is occurring with both a Web Page (ASPX) and a User Control (ASCX).At first I thought it was because I was going into the layout page and manually adding a control that way.  But then when I went back to dragging the controls right from the ToolBox the problem persisted.Why is this happening and how can I fix it?Robert

Unknown server tag - controls not rendering in visual studio 2010 design surface


I added a visual web part item to my solution.  I'm looking to drag some controls on to the design surface from the toolbox but they're not there.  For example, linqdatasource control and datapager control.  I tried to create them in the markup up but all I get is 'cannot render control' or 'unknown server tag.'

<%@ Assembly Name="Microsoft.Web.CommandUI, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>

Code behind file controls not defined/recognized when using WSPbuilder in Visual Studio 08


I am in the process of adding my custom aspx pages to the LAYOUTS folder(a folder I created) in a WSPbuilder solution in VS08. The problem I am having is when I build the solution it fails because the controls(Load, Textboxes, dropdown lists,etc) in the code behind file for the custom aspx pages say they are not defined. They all have a blue squiggly line and I get over 100 errors. Does anyone know what to do to get the WSP to recognize the code behind pages. Is there a setting or something I am missing.
