Solution/project structure


Hello, I am working in a aspx web application that must be built in several separate "modules" with different functionality which will be partly developed by different teams.

However, I need the completed app to reside in ONE virtual directory. There will be a single startup page. I need session state to be preserved across pages in different modules.

I structured it as one solution with different Web Projects and one class library project with common functionalities.


1) is this the right approach to do this? Or which one would be better?

2) each time I add a new web project to the solution, a new web.config gets created. What do I do and where do I put them?

VS 2010 + framework 4.0 + TFS

Regarding TFS and source control, I have a single Team project, the solution and web projects are inside it.



Visual Studio 2010 Creates Two Solution Files


When I create a new file system based web application in Visual Studio 2010, for example, named as "MyWebSite", two folders were created by the studio: MyWebSite and MyWebSite(2). The second folder only contains a solution file while the first folder has the solution file as well. Is this a new feature? Where is the setting that can avoid the second folder? Thanks,

Sending .net project files in email

Need a good solution on how to allow a user to upload multiple files


Im currently working on a project where i have a form that users fill out in order to submit issues.
My ask is to give the user the ability to upload multiple files together with the form submission and also go back each time they have an update and upload more if they need.
The way i have it right now is that i only have one FileUpload Control and once the Save button is clicked the file is save in the database together with the form info.

 I already has a separate table for the files with reference to the ticket but im just not sure how can i allow the user to submit as many files as they want in an easy way.

Any ideas?

Reading in values in text file in a project solution to an array



I have a tab delimited text file that has 6 columns (all integers) and 500 rows (and no column headings) called ProjectData.txt that I have added to my Windows Form Application (c#) (by added I mean I have it in my project solution). 

I have declared an array in my code called ProjectDataArray which has dimensions [500, 6].

I wish to load each column of each row into the array.

All the code I have seen shows how to do this for text files that are not included in the project solution. 

Is this easy to do?

Application_Start event stops happening when another project is added to the solution


I'm having something unusual happening with a Web Service created using Visual Studio 2008.  Basically, the Application_Start event stops getting called when I add another project to the solution.  Here's what I'm doing (note that I'm using the ASP.NET Development Server):

1. Create a new Web Service project.
2. Add a new WebService class.
3. Add Global.asax.
4. Add a single line "System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Break();" to Application_Start in Global.asax.
5. Change Web.Config compilation debug="true" (actually VS did it for me when I first try to run it).
6. Run the solution.  Result: Visual Studio breaks in the Application_Start event.
7. Manually stop the ASP.NET Development Server.
8. Re-run the solution.  Result: Visual Studio breaks in the Application_Start event.

All good so far.  However, when I continue...

9. Manually stop the ASP.NET Development Server.
10. Add new project (a Windows Class Library) to the solution.  This is NOT set as the startup project (the startup project is still the web service project).  No references are added to either project and no other changes are made to either project.
11. Delete the default Class1.cs that automatically gets added to the class library project.<

Can't change the code in Solution (Project)



I have problem using Visual Studio.NET 2003. When I open solution made early ago, choose the code of the existing .aspx page, could not change it, because when type nothing happened, no letter, no sign, like the keyboard is "dead" (but it is not, ofcourse). If I type the code in other application, then put it in .aspx.vb code page using copy-paste, everything is ok, can build the solution and it's working.

I appreciate for Your time, any help is welcome.



Upgrade Advisor SQL2008 - Profile Trace Files


I am not sure if the Upgrade Advisor is paying any attention to my Profile Trace.

I have created a Profile Trace against a SQL2000 instance using SQL2000 Profiler, and the SQLProfilerTSQL_Replay template.

I ran the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Upgrade Advisor  and got it to analyse the trace file.

I am just not sure the 'Advisor' is actually doing anything with the trace file, because the only 'progress action' that is performed is: 'Analyse SQL Server', which is always run, even when you don't specify the trace file.

Is that all I am supposed to see, or should their be an extra 'Progress Action' (and report) for the Trace File analysis.

Appreciate your help with this. 


.exclude files in solution?


I recently started working for a company and they wanted me to look at their ASP code base.  I checked it out of starteam and loaded the solution into VS2010... in the solution there are folders with the different sections of the site..

Most of them have a .exclude extention? 

For example there is a users section and a users folder in the solution.. if I open it I expect to see the customer.aspx and the code behind it.. instead I see customer.aspx.exclude and customer.aspx.cs.exclude below it?

Is this a basic way of keeping prior versions in the project? 

I can not seem to find the actual used customer.aspx code either? 

Sounded like a newbeeee question.. so I posted here..

Including policy files in a VS SharePoint Project package



I have some policy files to redirect requests for old versions of some custom assemblies in the GAC to the new versions, and I've just refactored my project to use a SharePoint project for packaging (previously I was doing this with MSBuild scripts) - how do I configure my SharePoint project to also include the policy .dll and .config files in the package so that they also get deployed properly?
