Default BASP45 Chapter 2 - Folders Creation

Hi guys,

I'm working on Chapter 2 of the BASP45 and has created c:\BegASPNET\Site folder as per instruction.

In the book "If you want to follow along with the VB.NET and C# at the same time, you can create
two folders, BegASPNETVB and BegASPNETCS, and use two instances of Visual Studio"

Shall I create 2 more folders in the root directory:- c:\BegASPNETVB\Site and c:\BegASPNETCS\Site ?

Currently, I've created c:\BegASPNET with subfolders Site, VBNET and CSharp with Resources and Source
folders in the VBNET and Csharp folders.

Am I doing it right?

Thank you.

Cheers,
Mohamad

It's easier if you have two root folders:

C:\BegASPNETCS
C:\BegASPNETVB

And then have a Site folder inside each of them. Your structure would work as well (although you don't need \Site anymore if you already have \VBNET and \CSharp) but it'll be easier to manage if you have everything for a single language in a single folder. For example, in Chapter 19 you'll work in deployment where you use the folder Release. If you create the two root folders as suggested you end up with something like this:

C:\BegASPNETCS\Site
C:\BegASPNETCS\Release
C:\BegASPNETVB\Site
C:\BegASPNETVB\Release

IMO, that's easier that having ReleaseVB and ReleaseCS subfolders.

In the end, it doesn't really matter as long as you know where you store what so you can find it again.

Cheers,

Imar

Thanks Imar,

I've already created folders below and stored the VBNET/CSharp Resources and Source in the Site folder accordingly as follows:-


C:\BegASPNETVB\Site
C:\BegASPNETVB\Site\Resources
C:\BegASPNETVB\Site\Source
C:\BegASPNETVB\Release (in preparation for Chapter 19)


C:\BegASPNETCS\Site
C:\BegASPNETCS\Site\Resources
C:\BegASPNETCS\Site\Source
C:\BegASPNETCS\Release (in preparation for Chapter 19)

Destination folder of Solution File (*.sln)

1. When I closed VS, it prompt to save the file to below path:-

C:\Users\User\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\localhost_49334\localhost_49334

2. How do I set in VS to default it to BegASPNETCS\Site or BegASPNETVB\Site?

3. What file type should I save the *.sln, as UTF-8, Unicode or ANSI?

Cheers,
Mohamad

Hi there,

Source and Resources should not be sub folders of Site or else they will become part of your web site which is not what they are intended for. Instead, I recommend you follow along with the book and set it up like this:

C:\BegASPNETVB\Site
C:\BegASPNETVB\Resources
C:\BegASPNETVB\Source
C:\BegASPNETVB\Release (in preparation for Chapter 19)

You could move Resources and Source anywhere you want as long as they are not a sub folder of the site itself.

The sln file isn't really used much so you can save it where you want (under your Documents for example) and accept the default file format.

>> 2. How do I set in VS to default it to BegASPNETCS\Site or BegASPNETVB\Site?

Not sure what you mean with this. If you mean the default save location, I don't think that's what you want as you don't want all your new projects to end up under that folder.

Cheers,

Imar
