Today we released a new template solution that fully supports and leverages new features in Visual Studio 2005, the .Net Framework 2.0 and ASP.Net 2.0 in particular. The new template solution fixes defects, expands documentation, and resolves file naming inconsistencies.
The new templates take advantage of several new features, the largest of which is master pages and content pages. This feature allows a single page (MasterPage.master) to control the common elements of a website. In previous solutions this was handled by a PageBase class which all pages inherited from and Header.ascx and Footer.ascx web user controls. The new solution removes the inherited class and the two web user controls and is far more elegant as content pages (.aspx pages) can be viewed within Visual Studio 2005 design view just as they would on the website.
Also added is the new Menu control displayed on the left navigational panel which dynamically displays links based on user permissions. Other more minor changes include that all base pages have been moved to the App_Code directory, and all code behind pages now use and support partial classes.
Numerous minor defects were also resolved including the following:
