Q4. What is Code Refactoring?
A4. Its a feature of Visual Web Express & Visual Studio 2005. Code Refactoring
Code Refactoring enables you to easily and systematically make changes to your code. Code Refactoring is supported everywhere that you can write code including both code-behind and single-file ASP.NET pages. For example, you can use Code Refactoring to automatically promote a public field to a full property.
Q5. What is Intellitask?
A5. Intellitask is like a super smart clipboard designed for working with code. Intellitask improves your productivity by enabling you to easily apply standard code snippets anywhere within the source editor. Simply by right-clicking, you can inject common code into your pages. Visual Web Developer will ship with more than 200 web specific Intellitask code snippets out of the box. Better yet, you can add your own code templates to Intellitask so that you can quickly modify your code in the future.
Q6. How to we edit templates & tables while developing applications in ASP.NET 2.0?
A6. Visual Web Developer has better designer support for editing templates. You can take advantage of the new template editing features when working with data controls such as the DataList and GridView controls.
When adding a control to a template in the designer, you can easily specify the databound expressions to associate with the control properties. For example, if you drag a TextBox control onto a template, you can bind the TextBox control's Text property to a particular field from the data control's data source. The Edit Databindings dialog box provided by the Visual Web Developer template editing designer enables you to easily bind particular fields by name.
Visual Web Developer has better HTML table editing features. The improved Insert Table dialog box enables you to quickly control the look and feel of the new table when it is added to the designer surface. In addition, Visual Web Developer provides the ability to resize tables, table columns and table rows graphically within the designer surface (just click and hold down the appropriate element to size it).
Q7. Do we need FrontPage Server Extensions with ASP.NET 2.0 applications?
A7. When we create ASP.NET 2.0 applications on Visual Web Developer OR Visual Studio 2005, We dont need Frontpage Server Extensions as we required in ASP.NET 1.1. When you create a new IIS project, you can now view all of the Web sites and applications configured on your machine. You can even create new IIS Web applications or virtual directories directly from the New Web Site dialog box.
Frontpage Server Extensions (FPSE) are no longer required for locally developed IIS web applications. You can create and fully manage your websites without having to install or configure them.
Q8. Can we develop web pages directly on an FTP server?
A8. Yes. Visual Web Developer now has built-in support for editing and updating remote web projects using the standard File Transfer Protocol (FTP). You can quickly connect to a remote Web site using FTP within the New Web Site and Open Web Site dialog box.
