How Do I Enable Visual Styles in My .NET Win Forms Application?

Published 16 years ago

With the .NET Framework 1.0 it was already possible to enable Visual Styles for your .NET Windows Forms so the application took on that shinny new Windows XP look. Enabling Visual Styles was quite a hassle, though. You had to create a manifest file that contained a lot of gobbledygook and it wasn't as straight-forward as you'd hope.
With the .NET Framework 1.1, however, things have become much easier.

How Do I Precompile an ASP.NET Whidbey Application?

Published 16 years ago

UPDATE (2005-12-06): The compilation features presented in this article are obsolete. It's recommended that you look at Web Deployment Projects instead.

Unlike Web sites created with Visual Studio .NET 2002 or 2003, there is no need to do a full compile of the project whenever something has changed in your site.

So far, I haven't been able to isolate the problem or come up with a solution. It looks like this problem is caused by some security mechanism in Windows XP Service Pack 2. I haven't tested various versions of IE and Windows XP yet, but I am sure it doesn't run on IE 6, SP2 with Windows XP SP2 (well, it doesn't run on *my* IE 6, SP2 with Windows XP SP2 ;-) )


In some scenario's, it could be useful if you were able to print a page from within the browser, without the Print dialog popping up, and without the user confirming the print operation.
