Smile Visual Studio sln

Hello Imar,
My question is regarding solution file. Earlier I had VS2008, in which when I used to create a new web site project then it showed a folder for that project in its start page's recent project item, and no confirmation about to save sln file. But now I have VS 2010, and I create similarly web site project but it shows now a blue Visual Studio Icon (an infinity symbol) in recent project item, and on closing the project it asks for saving the sln file.

What is wrong going on?
Thanks

A .sln (solution) file is a container for one or more projects in Visual Studio so you can group them and treat them as a unit. VWD creates SLN files as well. You can force VWD to always show the solution (in Tools | Options | Projects and Solutions) and then you could save it elsewhere if you wanted to.

As long as you're working with a single project at a time, you don't have to worry much about the solution file.

Cheers,

Imar

Hello,

How would you manage multiple projects at a time, and what is meant by that?
How solution file will contain those multiple projects?

Regards,
Sophia

You can have a solution with many different projects and project types. A common use case for this is to have a web site or web application and one or more separate class libraries for (reusable) code. For an example, take a look here: http://imar.spaanjaars.com/476/n-lay...l-introduction
