A Visual Basic Developer's Introduction to ASP.NET 2.0

Visual Studio 2005 provides the capabilities to build full-featured ASP.NET Web sites. However, Visual Studio 2005 originally shipped with a project-less system for building Web sites. For someone coming from a desktop development background, this made building Web sites work and feel much different from building desktop applications. The Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Projects add-in increases the similarity between building Web sites and desktop applications. The walkthroughs in this article assume that you have this add-in installed.

Walkthrough: Creating a simple Web application

  1. If you have not already done so, download and install the Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Projects add-in.
  2. Start Visual Studio 2005.
  3. On the File menu, click New, and then click Project.
  4. For Project Type, select Visual Basic.
  5. For Template, select ASP.NET Web Application.

    Visual Studio will create the new Web application that contains a single Web page. The designer will show you the markup code for the page. You can edit the page in this Source view, or you can use a WYSIWYG editor.
