Cannot not see solution node?

P: n/a
kai
Hi,
I use XP Pro and VS2005. I find when I create a new Website, I only see the
Project node not Solution. After I add sedcond project under the solution
tree, then I see the solution node.

How do I setup VS2005 to see the solution node after I create the first
project without adding the second project in the same solution?

Thanks

vs2005 websites don't have a project file (only a file dir), so no solution
file is required for websites.

the vs2005 philosophy is to not create any file until you ask for it. thus
no solution, web.config, global.asax or any those other files vs2003
generated when you created a new website. if you reference another project,
then a solution file is generated.

Hi Kai,

As Bruce has mentioned, the ASP.NET 2.0 project in VS2005 is different from
orginal one in vs2003. The VS2005 asp.net 2.0 project is treated as a
single alone website(just a normal folder with well-defined folder
structure...). If you do need a Solution to contain it, we can either:

1. We can create an Empty Solution before creating the Web Project and add
our web project in the Empty solution....

2. By default VS2005 ide will create solution for our projects which is
unde My document\visual Studio Projects folder, you can also check there to
see whether your asp.net project's solution file is there.

Thanks,

The solution file does exist for a web site project.

The solution file is not visible in Solution Explorer unless it feels
it needs to be.

To make the solution visible, go to Tools -> Options -> Projects &
Solutions, and check "Always show solution".
