Create a new Web application with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.
Add a Web Forms page to a Web application project.
Add Server Controls to a Web Forms page and modify their properties.
Write code in event handlers.
Build and test a Web application.
Now that you’ve learned about some of the features of Visual Studio .NET, the next step is to take advantage of them in your own applications. Conveniently enough, that’s precisely what you’re going to learn how to do in this chapter.
You’ll begin with an overview of the two major project types used for ASP.NET applications. Then you’ll look at the file types used in ASP.NET and the purpose of each. Next, you’ll learn how to create a new Web application, add a new Web Forms page, and add controls to the page and manipulate their properties. Finally, you’ll learn how to add event-handler code to the page, build the project, and test the page.
