  • I just installed a version called Visual Studio 2019 Preview

    Used to have an older version.  Want to edit a page of ASPX.  How do I view the page itself and not see just code, there used to be a tab at bottom to do that but I can't find it on this version?

  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    When you open the aspx file, the design buttons would occur at the bottom of editor. 

    Note: my visual studio preview version: 16.2.0 preview1.0

    Maybe you could add a new aspx file into your project. If this issue persists, please open visual studio installer as administrator, then repair it.

    Any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • Hi Scott,

    Thanks for your update. 

    Please try to right click the xxx.aspx page and it should display the option 'View Designer' or use the shortcut 'Shift+F7' to view the designer of this page:

  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Sorry for delay in reply.

    Did you create a new project with aspx page? If this issue persists, please run visual studio installer as administrator to repair visual studio.

    If possible, I will appreciate that you could share a sample using onedrive to help us analysis this issue better.

    Look forward to your reply.

  • I didn't create the page but have worked on many pages from the same source when I had my version that allowed me to view the page.

    I brought up the installer and have the option to modify but don't know where to go from here.  I would love to send someone a screen shot of my set up but have no way to do this.  Can I email someone?

  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Thank you for reply.

    Maybe you could create a new project with new page, then check if it has viewed button.

    And I have vote your reply to make you have points, you could try to re-add pictures OR copy the URL when you add the picture, then post it as text instead of hyperlink

    Look forward to your reply.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Thank you for reply.

    According to your image, the VS IDE could not recognize the file extension. It seems that visual studio does not install specfied workload. Please open visual studio installer to modify visual studio, then install .NETDesktop Development


    Any feedback will be expected.

    Dylan

  • can't find that as an option.

    Is it called .net Framework 3.5 Development Tools?

    Thursday, June 13, 2019 5:59 PM
  • nevermind, I found it.
    Thursday, June 13, 2019 6:01 PM
  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Sorry for my mistake.

    You also need to download and install the "ASP.NET and web development".

    Look forward to your feedback.

    Dylan

  • ok, I successfully installed the extension but still no tabs for viewing
    Friday, June 14, 2019 5:22 AM
  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Are these codes colored? If not, the aspx file is still not recognized by VS IDE. So please follow these suggestions to try to troubleshot it:

    ## reboot the machine, then re-open it 

    ## open Tools/Options/Text Editor/File Extension, then add aspx with WebForms Editor, then re-open it

    ## repair or re-install visual studio

    Any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • Dylan, you still around?
    Sunday, July 7, 2019 8:01 PM
  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Sorry for this inconvenience.

    The first two days are my rest day. According to your description, I suggest you need to re-install visual studio with specified packages (.net desktop development and asp.net and web development) which I reply before.

    BTW, if the issue persists, you could continue post it here, and I would provide a reply as soon as possible.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • Hi Scott,

    I checked the screenshot you shared, and noticed that the way you loaded the .aspx file is not recommended

    As far as I know, Projects and Solutions is the basic structure for the development in VS. So if you're developing a .aspx file, you need to include it in a corresponding project type.

    For example: If I have a MainWindow.xaml file from WPF project, and I add it to a solution only has a console app project, then when I open it in VS, VS can't recognize it well and will display just code but not UI designer page. (Similar to your situation)

    According to your screenshot, you dragged the .aspx to VS start page, or right-click the .aspx file and choose VS to open it. In this way, VS can't recognize it and will behave like opening the .aspx with Notepad or what. It's reproducible if I create a web-form app and copy the xx.aspx file to desktop, after that close vs or close current solution and choose to open the separate xx.aspx file by VS.

    1# So where the .aspx file comes from? If it belongs to a Web-app project, then please open the project (xx.csproj) or solution(xx.sln) instead of separate xx.aspx file. Then you can see the designer by what Sara suggests. 

    2# And if you can't find the original project which contains this file.

    Maybe you can try:

    1. In vs, Go file=>new=>project=>Visual C#=>web=>to create a new .net framework web-app(Choose the web forms template and click OK) (Make sure you've installed corresponding web-development workload)

    2. Right-click the Project name in Solution explorer=>add=>existing item, then navigate to the directory where exists the xx.aspx file you want to load and add the xx.aspx to current project, then you can check if you can use the view designer option.

    Hope all above helps.

    Sincerely

    Lance

  • This is all too deep for me, what you said and what Dylan said, how about this?

    I will uninstall the version I have, and can you provide me a link to a version that will absolutely provide the previewing feature I'm looking for?

    Tuesday, July 9, 2019 8:22 PM
  • Hi Scott Stam,

    Please follow the below steps:

    #1 download the visual studio community 2019 here:

    https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/thank-you-downloading-visual-studio/?sku=Community&rel=16&rid=30015

    #2 install the specified workloads

    #3 then you could edit the apsx with designer

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • ok that actually worked, thank you.

    I think the issue was that I needed the Community version and not the Preview version.
