Visual Studio allows us to create a blank solution when creating a new project. But it seems that for some users, the blank solution is missing from the list of templates. In this tutorial, we are going to learn two different solutions to this problem. First, we will manually create a
.sln solution file, and in the other solution, we will install a component using Visual Studio Installer.
I wanted to play around with game development the other day, so I looked around for a decent .NET Game Framework and decided to go with the MonoGame framework. After installing it, I used the MonoGame OpenGL template to create a project in Visual Studio. Unfortunately, the build failed with the "The type or namespace name 'Xna' does not exist" error, but fortunately, the solution was straightforward and is the focus of this post.
When creating a new ASP.NET MVC project in Visual Studio, the project will use a Bootstrap front-end framework by default. But there are more sophisticated templates with extended functionality available. One of them is AdminLTE, a dashboard & control panel theme also built on top of the Bootstrap. This article will show you how to replace the default Bootstrap framework with the AdminLTE template in an ASP.NET MVC project for the .NET framework.
When starting a project with a solution that will contain multiple projects, it may be best to begin with entirely empty solution and then add new or existing projects to that blank solution. We are going to demonstrate how to do that using Visual Studio 2022. We will also briefly touch on the problem when the blank solution is missing.
Yesterday, I installed the Visual Studio 2022 Community edition and noticed it was missing ASP.NET template for .NET Framework. I was not able to create either ASP.NET MVC or ASP.NET Web Forms web project. I was only able to find the ASP.NET Core related templates. This article will show how I was able to solve the problem.
After we create the ASP.NET Core application in Visual Studio, we can use the Visual Studio Publish Tool to create binaries and other set of files that are nedeed to deploy and run our app. The tool supports different publishing methods, such as folder and FTP among others. In this article, we are going to show how to publish ASP.NET Core 3.1 Web App binaries to a local folder.
