Multiple Projects in Visual Web Developer 2010 (VWD)

John Avis by | June 25, 2011 | ASP.NET Web Forms

I use Visual Studio 2010 at work and Visual Web Developer 2010 at home. One feature of VS2010 that is missing from VWD2010 is the ability to create a solution with multiple projects.

However, if a solution with multiple projects create in VS2010 is opened in VWD2010 it seems to work fine and you can even add and remove projects as you like.

Solution1.slnSo I have created a solution folder which I (and you if you download the attached file) can use to develop this type of solution in VWD2010.

Using the attached file:

* The file has a two projects, a website (Website1) and a class library (ClassLibrary1). They are in folders with the same names. If you want to rename the projects and folders you will need to change the proprties of each project, rename the folder and manually edit the solution file (.sln).

* It is simpler to just add new projects and delete the ones that I have included.

* Warning: If you delete a project leaving only one project then you will not be able to add any more projects in VWD2010.

Disable common UpdateProgress controls for an UpdatePanel with an associated UpdateProgress

by John Avis | April 12, 2017

If you have an ASP.NET Web Forms page with multiple UpdatePanels and multiple UpdateProgress controls, sometimes you may want one or more UpdateProgress controls associated with a specific UpdatePanel, and one or more UpdateProgress controls that have no association with an UpdatePanel so are shown when any UpdatePanel is updated.
