xss file RRS feed

  • Question


  • 1. What do the letters "x-s-s" stand for in a file extension, e.g. "myFunkyNorthwind.xss"?

    2. What does an xss file hold?

    Thank you.

  • "The .xss file is where VS 2005 stores the location and size of all the elements on the DataSet Designer. This is the "Make me pretty" file. The DataSet.designer.vb file is the generated code file. VS 2003 would generate directly into the DataSet.vb/DataSet.cs file. In VS 2005 these files are yours to work with. VS 2005 won't clobber over your code."

  • Basically it contains data used by the DataSet Designer.  I think the XSS file keeps track of the physical layout (screen position, etc.) of all of the elements of its diagrams.  Open one and look at it.

    I did.  It's empty.  That's why I asked.

    Any ideas?
