Description

It's time for a pile of "Hanselminutes on 9" Episodes, Dear Reader! Recently, I spent a day wandering around building 42 trying to dig up the scoop on Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4. In this episode, I'm hanging with ASP.NET 4 Marcin Dobosz as he shows me how "no control is left behind" in ASP.NET 4. They've updated older controls to support advanced templating so you can get the <ul> and <div> love you crave, even from those even <table>-based controls of years past.

      HAHAHA! "Well, it's good to know that people who are using .NET 2 are not...screwed." That's a great quote!

      Is there a list of controls whose markup was updated to be more standards-compliant in ASP.NET 4.0?

       

      Misspellings in exception messages for the ASP.NET 4.0 Beta 2 Wizard control highlighted below:

       

      A header placeholder must be specified on Wizard 'Wizard1' when HeaderTemplate is set. Specify a placholder by setting a control's ID property to "headerPlaceholder". The placeholder control must also specify runat="server".

       

      A sidebar placeholder must be specified on Wizard 'Wizard1' when DisplaySideBar is set to true. Specify a placholder by setting a control's ID property to "sideBarPlaceholder". The placeholder control must also specify runat="server".
