Visual Studio 2010 Finally Released

So Visual Studio 2010 has finally been released. I downloaded our MSDN copy yesterday so today I will be installing in the background while i get on with other stuff - it looks a monster install!

Big thumbs up to the change in versions! What used to be multiple versions to purchase (Architect, Tester, Database, Developer) are now wrapped into Ultimate for us Team Edition users!

I'll let you know how I get on with it as I look at all the new goodies.

Just one last thing - I often recommend not only as I am a very happy lifetime member and affiliate but because I truly believe you get a lot for your money - especially if you are just starting out - its where I started out and still keep going back for their new videos.

Anyway back to my original point - they have gone away and re-done their entire Visual Studio for Beginners library for Visual Studio 2010. That is 72 new videos! If you are looking to get the complete training package for peanuts then look no further!

BC30456: 'Title' is not a member of error in ASP.Net

If you get this error when you deploy to a production server but it works ok in development then the cances are you have got a duplicate name issue! This generally occurs when you have a developer that may have copied a web form rather than create a new one.

To resolve the issue simply rename the partial class (name of the underlying .vb or .cs class) and ensure that the inherits from in the aspx matches.

Golden rule is do not copy pages - create anew page and then copy the code! Or look at why you are copying - could you create a re-usable user control for example!?
