  • Blog Post: Good introduction to CSS Properties Window

    Mikhail has written a great treatise and guided tour of CSS Properties Window that shows what it can do and how it works.
  • Blog Post: CSS Properties window has shipped!

    The CSS Properties Window is something that I designed and implemented a lot of before I left the team earlier this year, and I am very glad to announce here that it has shipped: http://www.asp.net/sandbox/app_sandman.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1 A lot of the CSS related feedback that I was getting...
  • Blog Post: Table editing feedback

    For lack of anything better to post, I would like to get an idea of what people think of the table editing in the HTML/ASPX designer in whidbey. I spent a lot of time trying to improve this area.

The reason why editors have a hard time is because they are trying to emulate a word processor with some things. There are...

    My PM asked this question once in the forums but we did not get many replies - lets see how many we get in the blogs. How do you set the width of your table columns in HTML tables? Do you: Set a width on one of the cells in the column and clear the width from all other cells. Set a width...
  • Blog Post: The button tag

    One of the more interesting tags that I have seen is the <BUTTON> tag. Most people have never seen this, and when they see how whidbey lets you edit them like a normal container, the first instinct is to say "What is up with that?". Well, these buttons can have content inside them. You can put...
