Default VS 2002 Deletes Code!

The Line:

         AddHandler Me.Load, AddressOf Page_Load

will be removed in VS 2002 when switching from design view to html view in the ide. That really is a pain because Microsoft doesnt have a good solution to this problem.

    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> _
    Private Sub InitializeComponent()
      AddHandler Me.Load, AddressOf Page_Load
    End Sub

It was fixed in VS2003, and VS2005 will be released in 2 months. Maybe it's time to consider upgrading from VS2002?

You can get the free beta 2 of VS 2005 and see what changes are in store. There's really a huge amount of new functionality. You can do a lot of new and powerful things by setting configuration settings in XML. This is called declarative programming.

Approximately 70% of the code in ThePhile can be eliminated under the new version, and users will see a lot of new functionality, even though the code base is reduced.

Programmer productivity is the cornerstone of the 2005 release.

Maybe you're worried about the price of VS 2005? You can get a free copy of the final release version, and a free copy of the final release version of SQL Server 2005 if you come to one of these free events:

http://www.microsoft.com/events/2005...s/default.mspx

Just to make sure you get the free software you should enter this secret code in the box near the end of the registration: ReadyForLaunch.

Microsoft wants all developers to get the advantages of the next release!

Thanks For The Information. I will be moving to the new version. This was my first try using VS.NET. I like it so far except for the planned obsolence by Microsoft.

I disagree with the term planned obsolesence in this context. VS 2002 still works well for the most part. How long should Microsoft continue fixing bugs in old versions?

3 years is almost an infinite time in this business. A lot has changed since then, but you'll find that almost all VS 2002 code will compile and run without modification under VS 2005 - a remarkable achievement for Microsoft.

The Microsoft of today is NOT the same company we loved to hate in the 1990's.

Consider the free event I mentioned, plus all the tremendous support Microsoft gives to local user groups. I just got back from a local C# user group meeting at our local Microsoft branch. They contribute a ton of resources and assistance to people who want to learn .NET.

If you're not plugged in to local user groups you should look around and give them a try.

Well Eric, I went to the Microsoft event you suggested and I was impressed with the new version of visual studio and asp.net 2.0. Boy do I like the team development version with code checkout. Unfortunately, I am one man developer here at a city job. Anyway, I have installed vs 2005 and now I would like to convert the phile project that I have reduced to the accounts, core, and mailinglists folders. Any advice on where to start and what to read before converting to asp.net 2.0 with vs 2005? Thanks.

I posted a message the other day about the compilation/project model in VS 2005, which makes it hard to migrate a big solution of many projects.

I understand the 2nd edition of the book will be out soon, and that is designed specifically for VS 2005. I'm sure you'll love it. The new web site is called "The Beer House".

If you insist on porting "ThePhile", you need to read up on how projects are handled (or not handled) in 2005. As I mentioned, MS will come out with a new project model that will help in porting 2003 apps.
