You cannot vote on your own post
Is there a way to expand the size of the Recent Projects pane in Visual Studio on the start page? I'm a BI developer and it's impossible to see enough of the SSIS solution names in the Recent Projects list to choose the correct one.
I don't want to remove the pane or clear it's contents. I want to know how to make it wider so I can actually see what's there.

My Web Forms can't display Master Page in Visual Studio 2008



I hope somebody help me about this, I created a web site in visual studio 2008, the languaje is C#. After that, I created a master page for my web forms. The problem is: When I generate a new web form and choose the master page, the new web form can't display the content of the master page in designer mode or in the browser (by example, my web form is located in a directory called Users and master page is located in a directory called MasterViews. Only I can display them, if both files are in same location.

I reviewed the path of master page in the page directive, I changed the path with the same result.

Page cannot be displayed when I am trying to View in browser with visual studio team system 2008


I have been working on this project for weeks.  Every thing was fine.  But all of sudden today, I got this error: Page cannot be displayed when I was trying to debug as usual. 

I searched online for solution.  Only one solution was found at http://hubpages.com/hub/ASPNET-DEVELOPMENT-SERVER--WEB-PAGE-CANNOT-BE-DISPLAYED.  But when I followed its steps, I found in my hosts file, it is already like this:       localhost

I cannot continue to work without testing finished form pages.

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.

crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..

There are plenty of times when you need to get information on running processes, not the least of which is during performance tuning. Using the techniques in this article and special .NET classes you'll see how to get a process' ID, name, priority, number of threads, kernel handle, and memory consumption, as well as its user-mode, kernel-mode, and total elapsed running time and put them to use in a custom app called AssemblyBrowser.

CSS support in visual studio 2008 express edition


I have several css style sheets I want to work with.  I have copied them into the appropriate directory structure in my project.  The styles are applied correctly.

But the manage CSS styles tool bar on the left margin doesn't seem to work correctly.  At one point I had generated a style sheet and worked with it there, but now it not only can't find the one it generated, but the attach style sheet link doesn't respond at all, nor does anything in this bar.  Same deadness with the CSS Properties bar.  With or without a style sheet loaded in the editor -- a style sheet that is active in the project such that when I run it, the styles are applied.

VB version of studio, running on Vista home basic.

PS, the design mode works a lot better than the professional version I use in my day job on XP and server 2003.
