ASP.NET and Web Tools 2012.2 (Release Candidate)


Scott Hanselman announced ASP.NET and Web Tools 2012.2 (Release Candidate) today and it’s great for the first time it’s easy to deploy a DD Web Application Project (WAP) site precompiled and un-editable it’s just a check box now.

So install the new tools (get them from here Download Page and Release notes)

Note: If you already have publish settings then VS2012 will import them but they need to be in the root of your site.

New Publish Wizard

Figure 1 - New Publish Wizard

Navigate to the Settings Tab and check the “Precompile during publishing” checkbox and then click “Configure”

Disabled Editable markup.

Figure 2 - Disabled Editable markup.

un-check the “Allow precompiled site to be updatable” checkbox and your pages will no look like this Figure 3 if someone tries to edit them Smile

Precompiled aspx page no uneditable

Figure 3 - Precompiled aspx page no un-editable

And finally in VS2012 you can set the build configuration in each Publish profile, this works without having to change the build configuration in you project.

Warning: This sadly does not work for Dynamic Data yet it testes OK you already deployed to a site as it uses the place holders, I’m looking into it hopefully there will be a simple fix.
