  • Blog Post: Third Party ASP.NET Controls and Visual Studio 2008

    We've had a few cases recently where customers are using third-party ASP.NET server controls (either written by a third-party company or by the customer) and finding that the controls are not rendering correctly in the Visual Studio 2008 design surface. Most recently, we had an issue where a popular...
  • Blog Post: Automating aspnet_compiler in Visual Web Developer

    Visual Studio has a cool user interface for publishing a website using the Publish Web Site dialog, accessible by selecting Build, Publish Web Site.

On the one hand, a lot of ASP.NET developers who have...

    I haven't blogged in a long time, partly because I've been very busy with other things, but mostly because I made the mistake of making this a debugging blog when I started it.
