Visual layout design with VS 2003?

I'm currently working on my second web application using VS 2003/VB.NET,
after moved from Dreamweaver MX.
one thing that i missed so much in VS2003 is DWMX's great visual, WYSIWYG
layout design, and HTML template feature.
well, as you know, developing web application is not just about
inserting/updating/deleting and displaying data in plain-page design.
so, here are my questions:
- how to workaround this limitation in VS2003
- how to modify a pre-made web template to fill-in with dynamic content?
- i read from a forum that suggest design your layout with DWMX, then
bind/code your pages with VS2003. is it possible to do so? and how to do it?

many thanks in advance,
andy lim

Andy,

All your questions have the same answer: stick to Dreamweaver for the layout
design. That's how I am working now after long history of making pages in
Visual Studio. I have both programs open in the same time. I first create a
page in Visual Studio. Then I open it in Dreamweaver and make layout. Then I
switch back to Visual Studio and do coding behind, database access, etc.
Little changes in design I can still do in Visual Studio and for big changes
I switch back to Dreamweaver.

thanks eli,

how about templated-page?
say for example, with DWMX i built a template. then i generate some pages
based on that template.
i switch back to VS, inserting my data-bound grid, textboxes, some user
controls etc.
and, after that, what if i modify the template's layout back in DWMX? will
the changes in my template design reflected if i re-open it with VS?

thanks,
andy

Andy,

I don't work with templates. I would guess that if changes in template
layout translate to changes in the page layouts, VS will pick them up.

I created a Master.aspx page and removed all HTML from it, added some code to the .aspx.vb file to add controls to my page. Then I created a Child.aspx and changed the...

I recently upgraded to from Visual Studio .NET 2003 to Visual Studio .NET 2005. In Visual Studio .NET 2003 when I would select 'Build' it would add a *.dll with the name of the Project to a /bin/ folder in the same directory as the source code. However, in Visual Studio .NET 2005 when I selected 'Publish Web Site' and selected a target location to place it in, it placed the following files in it: All *.aspx files All *.html files
