using html files to build .net app

Hi still testing the idea of using html files for forms and then integrating
this into a net app. I tried a small form with a button but noticed all I
could do with the button is to right click and select run at server. This
still does not seem the same as using a button from the .net tool box. Just
wondering why, thanks.

What are you trying to do? I am not aware of any previous threads you might
have, so you'll probably have to explain again.

Hi thanks for the response. I am starting a project soon where another web
designer wants to provide me with html files with controls, images and links
(files will have html extensions) and I will create a .net project using
these provided files. This other designer is not really a coder but has
several years of web design using dreamweaver, photoshop ect. I will need to
put in all of the code behind such as connection strings, action when someone
clicks on a button (when it posts back to server). I am more of a programmer
and have built several .net web apps. I am thinking this may be difficult to
do but I want to capture the look that is provided by these html files.

Your designer is right in passing you good page designs as it makes your job
really a technical one, allowing you to ignore cosmetics. You'll probably
need to convert the htm files to asp.net pages, with code behind for the
business logic and stick to using the use the html pages to provide your
layout. That way you can keep the seperation of the design from the page
mehtods that make the logic tick, you can use master pages in .net2 to make
your life easier - given how clsoe you are to launch.

Its probably going to be a relatively easy job, but you might want to
consider using asp.net controls over html control simply for the added
flexibility they can give you.

ok thanks for the information. Guess the thing I am worried about is will I
be able to easily import in everything that is on the provided html page. In
many cases I will probably want to replace what is on the page with the
asp.net equivalent but still retain the same look. I do think I will want to
convert it to an asp.net page. Also any html controls provided I think I
will want to replace them with asp.net web controls as you stated.
