Default ASP.NET CSS Friendly Control Adapters

Yikes, one would thing that VWD 2008 would have included these css friendly adapters. Expecially because they are based on asp.net 2.0.

If I install the css friendly control adapters now, would that conflict with the "Try It Out" exercises in the book?

Is this an "add on" where you can add a new item to the toolbox list giving you the choice to use the old or new controls, or does it completely replace the old non css friendly control adapters?

I avoided using the asp:menus before because they could be read by screen readers. (I love this option and appreciate you bringing it up in your book - You add little easter eggs for us.)

One final question: Does the friendly css control adapters come with the Visual Studio 2008 Professional or are they add-ons too? (Just a thought as I may consider buying the professional version.)

Sorry about all the questions...

Terry

The CSS adapters don't replace existing controls; they complement them by altering the HTML after the controls have rendered to the browser. They still come as a web download (that's why I am referring to them from the book) and can be installed as an "afterthought" to fix an existing site.

Although you can use them in PlanetWrox without much problems, my recommendation is to skip them for a while. They can easily be installed afterwards, so it's probably easiest to stick to the book as much as possible.

Cheers,

Imar

Ok thanks, I will wait until I read the book the second time around. I'm going through the book using VB, then I will go through it again using C#.
