This is the second of two articles discussing the extremely rich design-time features of the .NET Framework. Part 1 discussed the basics, showing you where to start and how to extend your control implementation through attributes and interfaces, as well as their effects on the property browser, code serialization, and other controls. Part 2 continues the journey by concentrating on design-time functionality that you can implement beyond your components and controls, including TypeConverters, UITypeEditors, and Designers. It would be impossible to cover everything you can do in two short articles, which is a testament to just how all-encompassing and flexible the design-time capability of the .NET Framework is.

Visual Studio .NET provides support for designing rich features into your controls and components, allowing you to set properties, set form placement, inherit from base classes, and much more. So how does Visual Studio .NET do all this? What does the Windows Forms designer do? What's the difference between a control and a component? How does Visual Studio integrate your controls so that they can access features of the .NET Framework?In this article, the authors answer these common questions by building a clock control and taking the reader along for the ride. In building the control, hosts and containers are illustrated, the property browser is explained, debugging is discussed, and a general overview of the design-time infrastructure is presented.

Any time an upgrade of a favorite tool is released, questions about compatibility, versioning, and changes in methodology abound. The release of Visual Studio .NET 2003 is no exception. Developers will be relieved to learn that breaking changes have been kept to a minimum, and delighted to learn that important new features, like Visual J#, have been added. These and other new features of the .NET Framework 1.1 and Visual Studio .NET 2003, including mobile support and improved debugging, are discussed here.

Visual Studio .NET has lots of cool features. Obviously, it supports languages that target the common language runtime, like C# and Visual Basic .NET, and it lets you write CLR-managed code. But did you know that there are features of the environment itself, independent of the language features, that earn Visual Studio .NET the cool tool stamp of approval?In this article the authors count down their favorite environment features-the ones they think every developer will applaud. They include support for debugging stored procedures, project reference management, metadata in Class View, a richer immediate window, custom environment programming with macros, and more.

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
How do you go about changing your asp.net version from asp 2.0 to asp 3.5 ? Thank you.
I just downloaded the latest beta for ASP.NET MVC 3 that was "unofficially" released yesterday and I noticed that there is still no intellisense support in Visual Studio, or is there?
