Web App Factory –Compilation, Browsing, and Subversion Compatibility

Code On Time code generator for ASP.NET/AJAX has been extended to support automatic compilation of Web App Factory projects.

A Web App Factory project is produced as Visual Studio solution with the core application incorporated into a Class Library. The website pages are hosted in WebApp web application project included in the same solution. This type of project is recommended for experienced developers.

The latest release of the code generator automatically compiles and starts the compiled project in a web browser. This feature requires Visual Studio 2010/2008 or Visual Web Developer Express 2010/2008 installed on your computer. This behavior can be disabled in the project wizard on the Web Server page.

Web App Factory projects can be also compiled and started through browser action available on the start page of the code generator next to the name of the project.

Web App Factory projects are now ignoring system folders and files created by Subversion version control software.

The client library has been enhanced to add a supplemental CSS Class name to auto complete component in order to reflect the type of the auto-complete behavior. Classes SearchBar, Filter, AutoComplete, and Lookup and rendered to indicate the type of the auto complete control, which allows creating custom visual presentation of the control. The current version the theme collection does not create any visual distinctions of the four types of auto complete control.
