Multi-targeting support in Visual Studio Orcas

The web development tools team has been working on an article about a new Orcas feature we call "multi-targeting". However Scott Guthrie beat us to it and has written up an excellent and detailed article yesterday about this feature so we will just post a link to his article instead. Thanks to this feature, you can get all of the great improvements in the VS IDE without necessarily having to target the latest framework version as you had to in the past. You can use Visual Studio (or Visual Web Developer) Orcas to target either the 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 version of the framework. See Scott's article for more details on this and do let us know your feedback as always! -- Bash Read More...

PhotoHandler migrated to CodePlex

I just finished migrating my PhotoHandler workspace from GotDotNet to CodePlex. I have got to say that I really like what I'm seeing in CodePlex, from source control tools to the general look and feel of the web site. Anyways, if you've been using this simple way to build and manage photo albums, this is the new place to watch. And if you haven't, try it... http://www.codeplex.com/PhotoHandler Read More...

Great acropolis explanations

Today I ran across two very interesting and well written explanations of different aspects of Acropolis written by folks outside of Acropolis team! I am stoked to fine such good stuff for an effort that is so early form folks that were not directly involved in building it. Thanks to everyone in the community who is jumping in head-first on acropolis... Also, over on the Acropolis team blog, Kathy is aggregating useful acropolis posts from the team.. is there something else you'd like to see more information on? Microsoft Codename Acropolis - Unwrapped By Kevin Hoffman on The .NET Addict's Blog In this post I take a look at Acropolis - what it is and why should developers be concerned about it. Also, I compare it to some offerings on OS X to...

At last, Visual Studio patch for F5 debugging on Windows Vista has been released

A Visual Studio patch that fixes the Visual Studio F5 debugging of IIS7 applications on Windows Vista Home Premium and above has been released! This patch solves the "An authentication error occurred while communicating with the web server. Please see Help for assistance.", and "Debugging failed because integrated Windows authentication is not enabled. Please see Help for assistance" errors, that until now had to be worked around using the instructions in my previous post on this matter. Read more and get the patch information from my older post on this subject, Fix problems with Visual Studio F5 debugging of ASP.NET applications on IIS7 Vista . Read More...

Toolkit refresh release

We releases a Toolkit Refresh (10618) on Monday to address some issues we missed with the 10606 build, as well a nasty regression that slipped through on the TabPanel. We're working on beefing up our test coverage to add these cases so they don't get broken again. Kirti has details here . We also did a bunch more work tweaking the script combing features fo the ToolkitScriptManager, check out David's great writeup on this. Read More...

Flashback: Windows Forms Parking Window

I've been doing some research around component models for Silverlight. Since Silverlight brings us back to a client side programming model (yay member variables!), I started cruising through the Windows Forms source looking at some of the things we did back then as a way to remind myself of some of the subtleties of working in that space. I'm looking for those things that you don't usually think of until you're about 75% done with coding then realize you didn't plan for it. Anyway, since I worked on Windows Forms for the better part of 7 years, it's a bit nostalgic cruising through some of this code. Just like how when you open your old high school yearbook and see someones picture and go "wow, I haven't even thought of that person in years...

Solution / Hotfix: Developing web applications using Visaul Studio 2005 and IIS7

Bradley Millington on our team posted a while back on required configuration steps for developing web applications using Visual Studio 2005 & IIS7 on Vista. This is an update to that post with information to address issues that you may still encounter resulting in the following errors when doing F5 debugging with web applications on IIS7: "An authentication error occurred while communicating with the web server. Please see Help for assistance." "Debugging failed because integrated Windows authentication is not enabled. Please see Help for assistance." "Authentication error occurred while communicating with the web server. Try disabling 'Digest authentication'. Please see Help for further assistance." The Visual Studio team has just released...

VS 2008 Multi-Targeting Support

Earlier this month at TechEd we announced the official name of Visual Studio "Orcas" - which will be called Visual Studio 2008. We also said that the official name for the .NET Framework "Orcas" release will be called .NET Framework 3.5 (it includes the new LINQ support, integrated ASP.NET AJAX support, new ASP.NET data controls, and more). VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 Beta 2 will ship later this summer, and the Beta 2 release will support a go-live license for those who want to put applications into production using the new features immediately. What is Multi-Targeting? With the past few releases of Visual Studio, each Visual Studio release only supported a specific version of the .NET Framework. For example, VS 2002 only worked with .NET 1.0, VS 2003...

ClickOnce in Firefox

I just noticed that James Dobson recently got the FFClickOnce support added as an official FireFox plugin .. The latest release includes localization support! Thanks James, this really helps the community out a lot! Before the plug-in, you could not really do much with a clickonce application in firefox... With the plug in you get the much more useful "Run ClickOnce Application" Read More...

Building Silverlight Applications using .NET

I'm just about to hop on the flight back to Seattle after finishing up a 10 day business trip to Europe where I spoke at conferences and user group events in Budapest, Amsterdam and Zurich. Although trips like these are a little exhausting, I find them really valuable as a way to connect with developers from around the world, as well as provide me the opportunity to create and deliver new presentations and samples. One of the talks I delivered on this trip was a new "Building Silverlight Applications using .NET" talk that people seemed to really like. Building Silverlight Applications using .NET Talk I tried to keep the format and samples in this talk simple, and used a model where I used a few slides to explain each programming model concept...
