Some asp.net solution question


G

Hi all,

I have some newbie questions regarding ASP.Net 2.0 web sites under
VS2005.

1. Whenever I create a ASP.net web site application, the default
solution file is in the Documents and Settings\%USER%\My Documents
\Visual Studio 2005\Projects directory, can I change the default
setting somewhere?

2. If I move the solution file to another place , I have to manually
edit the solution file, is there any way to automatically change the
solution file?

3. The first line in the solution file containing the following,

Project("{E24C65DC-7377-472B-9ABA-BC803B73C61A}") = "C:\...
\SampleWebSite\", "..\..\..\..\..\..\SampleWebSite", "{F2151C34-
D5D0-46D2-986C-E1AE52EA97E3}"

What does "C:\...\SampleWebSite\" mean? Why there is three dots?

4. Where can I get the documentation about the solution file under VS
2005?

Thanks,

Rick

as might be expected, under tools->options->projects & solutions->general you
can set the default directories.

solution & project file formats are not offically documented, but pretty
easy to figure out.

The \...\dots each mean "go up one folder level from whereever you are now".
They are called relative path directives. Solution files rarely need to be
modified because of this. Generally what I do is save the Solution file into
the same folder as the actual web project in order to be able to zip it all
up and have everything in one place.
