Make Visual Studio 2008 Run Faster

leave a comment »

Visual Studio 2008 has nice enhancements over past version but it runs terribly slow especially on machines with not so great configurations.

However, Microsoft has taken some steps and released a Hotfix to resolve some inherent bugs which was indeed causing slow performance at certain areas.

Another small trick you can do is to turn off Auto-Recover option (I have seen visible performance difference after doing this).

Choosing Iframe over other things

with 6 comments

Recently I had to design a layout for a web application in Asp.Net and I wanted to use something really flexible which gives me control over different part of the page (i.e navigation area , content area etc). I have searched and tried ajax borderlayout (extjs), <div>, frames, panels ( and iframes, then I have concluded that Iframes are best in all of them.

Using Iframe is easy, it gives you more control and flexibility, you can design various parts of the page as individual pages and put them in Iframes to make it look like a complete layout. It is also easy to pass URL variable from one frame to another using javascript.

And I have also come to know that gmail is also using iframes in their page layout. so I think I have made a right choice.
