visual studio does not handle user control ascx files - web matrix does!

what a waste of money.

visual studio does not handle user control files - these are files with
and ascx extension are are refered to in the help as 'user-authored
server controls'.

the VS help says to use a text editor to create these controls (i
wonder if they'd recommend emacs) - however, web matrix handles these
files fine and you can use the designer to alter them.

the only way i think i can kludge around it is to create aspx files and
then (using an editor) manually convert them to ascx files.

but after paying out a small fortune on this VS thing we should not
have to kludge around anything.

as these files are developed there may be changes - so - find original
aspx file - edit file - remove stuff and add references (manually) to
convert - rename with ascx extension - overwrite existing ascx file.

not a simple kludge and why should i even have to consider this?

having something in web matrix but not in VS is completely unexpected -
and now you have a very disgruntled client who is getting more
disgruntled with MS every day.

Works fine here in VS.NET 2003... Which version are you using ?

Give it also a try by yourself in case the doc would be out of sync with the
product...
