I wasn't expecting automatic conversion, just a way to bring in the entire existing ASP website structure into VWD Express.
What I've discovered is this:
In VWD Express create a new project
Right click and select Add Existing Item
Browse to the folder that contains the Classic...
I'm just starting out with Visual Web Developer Express 2008.
I was wondering if it's possible to import a complete existing Classic ASP site into VWDE, the aim being to convert ASP pages to aspx one by one.
I don't see any obvious feature that allows me to do that.
I had previously tried to work with Flush but without success.
In the end the only way I have managed to get it to work is by using an interim page to tell the user what's happening, which in turn calls the problem page using a meta refresh:
I was hoping to avoid the interim page but it looks like that might have to be the route to take. I'm afraid the "asynchronous processing in your server application" suggestion is a bit beyond me at this stage -- I'm just starting out with ASP.NET.
Everything works fine if I just...
I seem to have some sort of a bottleneck problem with a webpage that contains the following sub:
31 Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
33 ' Hide the button from further clicking.
34 Button1.Visible = False
36 ' Create the...
I could really do with some clarification on using virtual directories correctly. My situation is that I have a class folder located thus:
In sub3 there are some .aspx and .vb files that need to find the code in class_folder.
I already got myself...
In incorporating a few aspx pages (created by someone else) into an existing website that is mostly written in classic asp, I have to have a local web.config file in the /sub/sub/sub/ folder where the aspx and aspx.vb files are ultimately located.
I note there is a lot of duplication between...
I consulted those references before and during my earlier failed attempts to use Connector/Net. I don't know exactly why I failed (I didn't keep that code when I got the ODBC version working) but I think there's a bit more to it than just the connection string.
As I said, doubtless due to my...
I don't follow your reasoning John.
Why would I persevere with a provider that won't integrate with my editor (VWD 2008 Express), in preference to one that is already integrated?
Yes, I'm aware of the claims for Connector/Net, such as:
"Connector/net is one of the most feature-rich and best...
Well I finally got it sorted out after a struggle to find a connection string that would work.
I tried using the string from System.Data.SQLClient (which works fine in my classic asp code) but kept getting invalid login errors, despite being absolutely positive that the credentials were...
It may well be, but I'm still none the wiser. It won't integrate with Visual Web Developer Express which is what started me on the manual coding path.
Sorry, but I need an example more specific to my particular circumstances.
Hi folks. I hope y'all haven't gone bush for the weekend and left me to my own devices. I definitely can't be trusted on my own!
I'm trying to transition from Classic Asp to VB.NET and I have to confess some confusion when it comes to using a MySQL database.
Here is the initial connection code...
Well, I followed up your comment with some more searching and it seems that is indeed the case -- Visual Web Developer 2008 Express doesn't want to know anything about the MySQL Connector/Net, and neither Microsoft nor Sun seem to be very interested in doing anything about it or even...
BTW,where is this "reputation link" that's supposed to be at the top of your posts?
I always like to show my appreciation to helpful people.
EDIT: S'OK ... after leaving the page and coming back I could see the icon then.
Sorry folks, another newb question, but first...
Apologies to the Moderator for not putting this in the mySQL forum, but it's a very lonely place over there, and no responses!
My new installation of Visual Web Developer 2008 Express doesn't seem to know anything about the MySQL...
