Visual Studio Performance is terrible when editing data templates

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JQuery

I am building a WPF application that has multiple resource dictionaries and data templates.  I have my settings set to always open xaml in the source only view, and I have looked to see if I could find any other settings that would help my performance.

In visual studio 2010 the performance gets so bad I literally cannot work.  If I type one letter, the letter shows up and then visual studio thinks for several minutes before letting me type another letter and repeating the cycle.  It does seem that rebooting my computer helps, but it gets bad quickly enough that rebooting too often isn't exactly a good solution.

Does anyone have any information that can make visual studio usable for working with my xaml?

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D

ATL Server and Visual Studio .NET: Developing High-Performance Web Applications Gets Easier


When developing high-performance applications for the Web, developers often must choose between performance and ease of development. With ATL Server, new with Visual Studio .NET, developers get the best of both worlds. ATL Server uses a tag replacement engine written in C++, provides a simple programming model, and promotes enhanced performance and easy debugging. This article presents an overview of the ATL Server architecture, then creates a basic ATL Server project. It then goes on to explain processing SRF files, HTTP streams, forms, cookies, and header files. Managing session state is also discussed, along with file uploads and performance monitoring.

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

Improving the Start-up Performance of the WPF and Silverlight Designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2


IMPORTANT NOTE: the Beta and Release Candidate builds of Visual Studio 2010 are now obsolete, since Visual Studio 2010 has now released to manufacturing.

See http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/download


NOTE: The Release Candidate and RTM builds of Visual Studio 2010 does not need this configuration change

This post is to let you know about a configuration change (registry switch) which you can use to improve the startup performance of the WPF and Silverlight Designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.

1. Since this was a late-breaking change, you may experience some instability or increased Virtual Memory usage in some Visual Studio scenarios when using it. If you see such instabilities, please try removing the configuration change, and let us know about the problem you saw (you can do this by replying to this posting or by raising a bug on Connect).

2. You should only make this configuration change if you are a regular user of the WPF and Silverlight Designer, and are experiencing poor performance with it.

3. This configu

When editing a SSIS package in Visual Studio, copy-paste actions have annoying behaviours.


Currently, I'm in a project with high use of SSIS packages.

I've setup a package with many Sequence Containers in order to group Tasks and have these groups to execute modularly before continuing in the next group.

There are Tasks that are very similar, so I just copy-paste them and then change properties.

The problem is that, when I do the "paste", the Task rectangle is always placed in a left-bottom location relative to the currently existing Tasks and Sequence Containers (instead of below the coordinates of the mouse after the right click, as one would expect).

It was already annoying when I didn't use Sequence Containers, because I had to scroll around just to pick the Task in the strange place to where it was copied and put it in the right place.

But it started to be worse with Sequence Containers. Although it really detects the coordinates of the mouse and puts the Task inside a Sequence Container if I right-click over an empty space of the container, it continues to place the Task in a very far left-bottom place relative to the remaining objects. It causes the Sequence Container to stretch until its border contorns the Task in that strange place. I have to 1) move the Task object to the right place and 2) resize the Sequence Container borders to its original status.

Currently, to avoid the step 2 abov
