Visual Studio 2008 - Saturday August 4, 2008

Graphical Web Designer
IDE Split View

Here is the issue that I mentioned yesterday with regards to the designer. If you are in the split view and you click on a button, you would expect to go to the server side click event of the button.  Instead of going to the default event, you end up in the Page_Load event.  This only happens in the split view.  If you are in design view only, you get the expected behavior of going to the click event of the button.  This has been reported and logged.


Javascript Debugging

Javascript Debugging with a Visualizer
We have been having a problem with some web service code I wrote (no jokes).  The code is being called by a web client, so its AJAX.  I was getting reports that the code was just generating a server side error.  I set some breakpoints on the server, but the server code was never getting hit.  I was racking my head as to what was happening.  Then it hit me, I set a breakpoint in the javascript and hit F5 to start debugging.  I found the error pretty quickly, an incorrect datatype was being passed.  So, there you have it, Visual Studio 2008 made my life better today.


Javascript during a build process

When you build a web application, it looks like Visual Studio 2008 looks into the javascript code on a web page and .js files and checks for anything that looks silly.  While it reports some things as warnings which don't keep things from running, I think this is a really good feature.  It can catch when we're doing something stupid.
