Default Designing Page Layout

One thing that isn't covered is, in my version of WebMatrix, there is a Visual Studio button. I haven't got it to work yet - it didn't download sucessfully.

The reason I mention this is all the examples so far use HTML and CSS that already has all the layout 'calculated'. I can't believe in real life people would try and do this manually.

So what method do you use to generate the visual content of the pages?

Visual Studio is an advanced tool and is therefore out of scope given the title of the book and nature of its intended audience.

I'm not sure what you mean by "all the examples so far use HTML and CSS that already has all the layout 'calculated'". Visual Studio doesn't provide any visual tools for layout in Razor pages. Most professional developers do actually simply type their HTML and CSS. Not many that I know of will trust tools that autogenerate it.

Hi Mike
I've ordered your book and not started it properly yet.

As a beginner I can see what this thread is about. What we have problems with as a beginner is deciding what layout to use. Eg do we use menus along the top, down the sides, where do we start in creating a header?

I expect your book with be with me by tomorrow. Do you have any tips about how to decide what layout to go for. Or is it better to write a lot of content first in order to build around it.

Cheers
Matt
