Razor syntax hilighting problems in VS2010 SP1

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

When I add @Href function as in following code, hilighting switches off and intellisense is not working,

is there a way to overcome this? :


Correct hilighting:

<td style="width:2px;background-image:url('Images/left_side.bmp');background-repeat:repeat-y;"></td>


Wrong hilighting:


<td style="width:2px;background-image:url('@Href("~/Images/left_side.bmp")');background-repeat:repeat-y;"></td>


Wrong hilighting 2:


<td style="width:2px;background-image:url("@Href("~/Images/left_side.bmp")");background-repeat:repeat-y;"></td>


P.S. sorry did not find a way to upload screenshot...

This is working. However when I use Razor view engine I am using the following:

SQL Server 2008 Development problems with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate uninstall and VS2010 premium i

Razor needs shorter syntax to prevent HTML encoding


It's great that Razor HTML encodes by default. However, many times I have HTML in a database and want to display it literally on a page. In WebForms 4, we can use <%= %> and <%: %> to choose between encoding options. Raven's syntax is currently @(new HtmlString(Model.Greeting)). This is far too verbose.

Please add a shorter syntax to Razor. Something like @=Model.Greeting or @@Model.Greeting, or something else.


How to solve JavaScript IntelliSense problems in VS2010

VS2010 should support all of the VS2008 JavaScript functionalities as shown in Scott Guthrie's VS2008 JavaScript IntelliSense blog .  It includes: 1. Basic type inference 2. IntelliSense from referenced external JavaScript libraries 3. IntelliSense from XML comments for functions, parameters and return types 4. Calling web services using ASP.NET AJAX   Additionally, VS2010 RTM had some improvement, including: 1. IntelliSense when manipulating browser objects 2. Dynamic generated variable IntelliSense 3. Default JavaScript snippets within IntelliSense to help you code faster Scott Guthrie has a brief blog covering some of these.   Due to the dynamic feature of our JavaScript engine, we may run info conflicts between XML commented...(read more)

Top .NET Performance Problems and how to avoid them

Every time I work with one of our .NET customers to help them with managing their application performance I come across the same problems as seen with other clients before: lots of ADO.NET queries, many hidden exceptions in core or 3rd party .NET libraries, slow 3rd party components, inefficient custom code

VS2010 Professional .NET 4.0 Remote Debugging ASP Website Project


Trying to remote debug ASP website from VS2010 Pro to Windows Server 2003 machine.  Specifically, trying to debug a Web Service, but breakpoint says, "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document."  This happens for all compiled code though.  I have read this is due to missing PDB files and the work around is to manually copy them, as noted here.  Problem is, I cannot find any PDB files for my project, except referenced libraries, which I can remote debug.


  • web.config has <compilation debug="true">
  • Debugger is attached to wewp.exe process on remote server
  • Installed VS2010 remote debugger from DVD (as I can remote debug referenced libraries)

This is beyond frustrating.  I migrated my code from VS2008 .Net3.5 to VS2010 .Net4.0 to take advantage of the inherent multithreading framework.  Debugging works when using local host and was stable until deployment to test server.

Thanks in advance,


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?

Sending a File Using Email Helper in WebPages/Razor


Note: This is particularly with respect to Email Helper in WebPages/Razor. Please don't post links using System.Net.Mail object.

Following this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/9-adding-email-to-your-website

Under "Sending a File Using Email" section what exactly is the code trying to do.

1: The SendFile.cshtml does not have any option to select file.

2: ProcessFile.cshtml is running fine. I am getting the email but no attachement.

I tried changing fileAttachment input to type="file" but not file is being sent to my email. I just get the message send in body.

Question: How exactly this file attachment works using Email Helper in WebPages.

How to configure IIS 7.0 for ASP.NET Web Pages Razor


I'm working on a blog framework using ASP.NET Web Pages with Razor Syntax and I'm having some trouble with URL rewrites. My server is a Windows Server 2008, which runs IIS 7.0. WebMatrix is already installed on the server and .cshtml pages runs without problems, as long as they are named "index.cshtml" I don't have to supply the extension.

What does not work, is when I have URLs that does not correspond to physical files, e.g. website/post/why where the only physical file I have is post.cshtml. With IIS Express, the post.cshtml file is execute but on IIS 7.0 I get a 404 error.

Should I install the URL Rewrite for IIS 7.0? What configuration changes is required?

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

Need Syntax To Make Results of LINQ Union Return Non-Generic Type



I have the below SQL which works just fine:

SELECT     Message, CreateDate, AccountId, AlertTypeId
FROM       dbo.Alerts
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT Status, CreateDate, AccountId,
                          (SELECT     10 AS Expr1) AS AlertTypeId
FROM         dbo.StatusUpdates
WHERE AccountId = PassedInParameter

I have been going about trying to convert the above into a LINQ method and am having problems with return types.
As the above SQL illustrates, I am querying two distinct LINQ tables - Alerts and StatusUpdates -
and then attempting to perform a Union on them. In order to do the union in LINQ, I have to have agreeing types. So, I
am using "var" to make the results of "alerts" and "updates" generic before the union.  

public IList GetStatusUpdatesAsAlertsByAccountId<T>(Int32 accountId)
            using (WorkbookDataContext dc = _conn.GetCont

Problems posting to a package


Hey Y'all

I'm currently creating a program that accesses a mysql package to add data to a few tables.  I'm currently getting an error that says  "

ORA-01403: no data found
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 42
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 177
ORA-06512: at line 1


These lines are


and 177:add_team_members(V_PROJECT_ID, V_START_DATE, v_FISC_YEAR, V_MEMBERS ,V_NUM_MEMBERS,'add');

Checking these variables in my asp.net page they are all receiving parameters.

Is there a  way to see what the database is actually receiving from the asp.net page?

Or is there another thing to be looking at?
