Can I add an entire folder to my Web Application Project?

Hi gang, I have been developing my first ASP.Net 2.0 website using the Web Application Project model. I ran into a funny problem and I wanted to bounce it off you guys. I started working with a component called FCKeditor that is an HTML javascript editor. In addition to a .DLL file, you have to add an entire folder of stuff including javascript, CSS, and images. I tried copying the folder as a subfolder under the project root and then tried Add / Existing Item to add the folder to my project, but you can't add folders, only individual files. Am I missing something? Is there a way to add an entire folder of content to my Web Application Project? Thanks,Kevin

How do you move an UI testing for a web site project to a web application project?


I was not able to do unit testing for our existing web site project. I converted the web site project to a web application project. I did some unit testing and changes on the converted web application project. However, my co-worker was doing UI testing on the web site project.  We need put UI testing and unit testing to the web application project. Is it possible to move the UI testing code that my co-worker did to the web application project I am working? If so, how do you do it? Thank you for your help.

Web Service cannot be found/referenced in Web Application project (working in Web Site)


Hi Everyone,

I am learning about the web service technology, and I tried to create my first Ajax style web service following the video tutorial by Joe Stagner (http://www.asp.net/general/videos/ajax-style-services-with-microsoft-visual-web-developer-2008)

The tutorial is quite basic, we simply create a web service, and call it from Javascipt in the same program.  But while I can create the web service no problem (testing the WSDL file from browser works perfectly), I cannot call it within Javascript.  Tellisence do not kick in, and when I run the program anyway, a Javascript error claims that the web service I created cannot be found.

After much frustration, I noticed that my program is created as a Web Application, while the tutorial is created under a Web Site.  So I created a Web Site too and everything works. 

So the question is, what setting(s) do I have to change in a Web Application for this to work?  I guess an even broader question is, what differences between Web Application and Web Site do I need to be fully aware of, so this kind of problem do not occur in the future?

Thank you very much!

How can I be sure that my entire project is up-to-date and free of errors in VS2010?


Seems like a stupid question, but I will go to Build > Build Solution many many times and the build will succeed many many times, then I will put in a minor syntax error and the build will fail, BUT the build will not fail because of the minor syntax error; it will fail because of an unresolved type that I put in about twenty compiles ago. And then I will fix the minor syntax eror, and the compiler will still complain about the unresolved type. Here is my code:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="FTB" Namespace="FreeTextBoxControls" Assembly="FreeTextBox" %>
  <form runat="server">
  Hello World!!  

Pretty simple, really. I go to Buld > Build WebApplication1 and it runs OK. Now, if I put in a minor syntax error, such as substitute "forrrrrrrm" for "form" and then try to Build Solution, it complains not about the misspelled word, but about the FreeTextBox. And then if I correct the misspelled wird, it still complains about the FreeTextBox. Which leads me to believe that Building the Solution does not check absolutely 100% everything that needs to be checked. Is there a more thorough way of compiling a program that I need to use?

VS 2008 Web Application Project


Hi, I am working on a VS time clock project to be used for student's to clock in and out. When the student clocks in the time/date is saved to a temp table. Upon login out to the login screen for the next user to use I need to save the clocked in time to a permanate table. It is an update from the temp table to the permanate table. However, when the page redirects to the login page, I recieve the dbnull to date is invalid error. Now understand, when the page is redirecting to the login page for the next user, the only way I could figure out to get the browser to forget the sessionstate, was to use a delete statement that removes the data from the perm table, but before it erases it, I need to save it to the permanate database table.


Anyone have a solution they can send my way??


Thanks :) 

Site File Structure, Folders, Learning project, subweb, web.config

I am just learning asp.net.  I purchased an "ASP.Net 3.5 web programming in C#" book, which I like allot.  I am on chapter 3 and want to complete a shopping cart exercise from the book.  I have to create several folders and files.  The exercise has the files and under the root directory and a few folders below that.  I already have a site that I've been learning on.  Can I create a subfolder on my site and put all the files in there?  Like the subfolder is the root of the project.   Here is list of Folders and files... Code/CartItem.cs Code/Product.cs Data/Cars.mdb Images/car.jpg Cart.aspx Order.aspx Web.config ................................ On my website I want to create a subfolder to keep alll the files in, as so... ShoppingCart/Code/CartItem.cs ShoppingCart/Code/Product.cs ShoppingCart/Data/Cars.mdb ShoppingCart/Images/car.jpg ShoppingCart/Cart.aspx ShoppingCart/Order.aspx ShoppingCart/Web.config ................................ Can I have two web.cong files?, one in the subfolder?  Or do I have to use the single, web.config file in the root directory of the site?  Are there any other pitfalls or trouble I might get into setting up my file structure like this?  Anything I should be aware of? Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike   

calling a web service on a remote server from a ASPX page (web site project VS2005)

HI,I am maintaining a web site project in VS2005 and have to call a new web service on a remote server. I've done add web reference, and created the .wsdl and .discomap files in the app_webReference folder.  When I try to create a object representing the web service in the code ( wsnamespace.serviceName ws = new wsnamespce.serviceName(); ) the code wouldn't compile.The web site project is already calling other web services. When I right click on the type representing the web service and "go to definition" it takes me to a proxy class (derived from of course SoapHttpClientProtocol) in the metadata. I think this is what's missing for  the new web service i'm trying to call. Have I missed any steps?Thanks in advance.-me

Can I deploy a custom site page from the VS2010 SharePoint project?

Hi We're setting up some demos of our sharepoint plugins and want to easily deploy these into sharepoint so that all members of the company can easily get the demos running on their own machines. This is fine for layouts, web parts and so on - but the demo also has a customised sharepoint home page (which I edited in SP Designer) - how do I make this edited home page part of the VS2010 project so that it can be deployed easily to any site collection?   Thanks  

Problem create a web application on SharePoint 2007 (Project Server 2007)

I installed a Project Server 2007 in a 3 server structure (all Win 2003 sp2; one for App server hosting Central Admin, Project Server service & Search service; one for web server; one for database server).  They are only in the same domain and I use the same network account for the installation as well as the WSS service account.  The same network are local admin for those 3 servers.

Can't add ASPNETDB.MDF to ASP.NET 4 Web Site project [SQL Server 2008 R2 Express]

I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express and try to add ASPNETDB.mdf database to my web site project.

SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit



I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?
