Changing spaces to tabs in the templates

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hey all,

I was wondering if there was a quick way to change the templates that come with Visual Studio. Right now they use space indenting and I'd like them to use tab indenting. Including the ADO Data Entity and DBContext related templates.

I was able to locate them and changed a couple manually and after running devenv /installvstemplates it worked but there are plenty and I wouldn't want to manually go through them all if there was an easier and faster way.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Dynamic Data Templates in GridView ASP.NET 3.5

At a high level, Dynamic Data Templates can be seen as a system to very quickly build up a User Interface linked with the relevant data model, immediately enabling you to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on the database using the specified data source. They provide a powerful method for building up these kinds of applications, and I'm going to focus on an overview of what Dynamic Data Templates actually are, and a few ways of customizing them to suit industry needs.

Missing 'new item templates'


 Hi all,

          I am a 'newbie' to VWD and I am slowly working through the Basic Walkthrough Help files, and learning plenty along the way.

However, when I tried to create a new database in the LINQ control walkthrough I found that the option to create a new database is missing, and further investigation has found that many other new item templates are missing.

I am using a brand new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate and have enabled IIS and .NET from Control Panel-Programs-Turn Windows Features On-Off. I used the WPI to install all basic elements eg. IIS Components, SQL Server Express.

The only 'new item templates' I have when I right-click the App_Data Folder and choose 'new item' are:-

ADO.NET Data Service

AJAX Enabled WCF Service

Dynamic Data Field

SQL Server Database

Text File

XML File

Does anyone know where I have gone wrong.

Problem with changing language using culture info


I'm using the following msdn article to use different languages in my web application:


I'm following the instructions step by step in VS 2010, and it creates the resource files exactly how it's supposed to. 

However, when I run the program it just doesn't apply it. I don't see the different values from the resource file. 

If I leave my resource file name as sample.aspx.resx, it works. But when I change it to sample.aspx.en-us.resx, it doesn't work. I'm supplying culture from the aspx page's Culter and UICulture properties. I'm being very careful in choosing the correct file name, as that could be the issue,  but it just doesn't work. I also tried changing the culture in the backend code this way:

Changing direction of pop-ups/alerts in RTL


Hello All,

I am not able to change the direction of popups/Alerts in Arabic culture which should be RTL direction.

Rest of my application is changed in above culture, only problem is with popups and alerts.

Thanks in advance.

Changing from Local to WCF


I've been handed an application thats connection string implies a local host connection.

I want to make this connection a remote connection, to a database located on a Server.  I want the client and server to be able to communicate with one another remotely, instead of a local connection.

How does one create the Data Service, and establish end points to Server and Client?  Is it as simple as creating a contract (which I have limited knowledge on constructing), between the two locations, setting up the dataservice, security, and ratifying the 'connetions'?

A smidge of insight, please ;-)

Changing classic asp.net Menu to CssAdapterMenu


Hello Friends,

                     I have been using asp.net menu control that is programmatically binded at runtime and has n child node levels. Now i want to use CssAdapterMenu instead because the menu control contains more than 1000 menuItems(in the near future it can also be more 2000 menuItems) and has very slow response in IE 6 or IE 7.

                    Now my question is how should i change the classic asp.net menu to CssAdapterMenu. What should be the steps? Any samples example of n child node levels would be helpful
