<newbie> how to open a web browser window in vs2008?

P: n/a
hi

I'm wondering how to open a web browser window in VS2008. I've created a
simple windows Live Agent and just want to test it in the VS2008 before I
deploy it...

any ideas how to open a webbrowser window in VS2008, or is it enough to use
my standard webbrowser (IE7) and navigate to port 8000?

Can you explain a bit more, please...

When you create web site or web application project in Visual Studio.NET
2008, this creates an application which must be deployed on a web server
running (usually) Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) - it does not
create a desktop application. Once you have deployed the web app to the
webserver, users point their browser at that site.

If you have configured your web app to run on port 8000, you will typically
access it like http://www.mysite.com:8000

Is this what you mean...?

- I'm not sure that is what I mean. What I mean is that I've installed the
Windows Live Agent SDK on my computer. So in VS2008 can create Live Agent
projects. Now I'm looking into how to test my agent..

I'm following this tutorial.

between 27:45 and 27:55 that man is testing his agent in a webbrowser window
inside visual studio. I'm not sure how to bring up that window which that
man in the video is using for testing his agent in the visual studio

Go to "View/Other Windows" or Ctrl+Alt+R

Never knew about that... looks like useful feature....
