DynamicForm 220.127.116.11 Released
Extremely happy with this release and bumper packed
** New Module
Added New Inner module that extends the presenter functionality "DynamicForm.Viewer". When added to a page the module can be configured to render any DynamicForm with a specified Presenter.
Getting Ready for New Releases
New releases of RocketFuel and DynamicForm Beta.
A new feature added to RocketFuel is the ability to view raw Page and Module data. This is the data held in the system such as PageId, ModuleId, Permissions, Resources, etc. When trying to track down what module data you want to look at in the database you will always need the Module id.
DynamicForms has a new control to the Toolbox, Tags. Tags allow you to organize and filter your data. The Presenter has a complete overhaul and is very rich and dynamic, with real time preview of the Presenter Template. Check out 1.0.2

How to Do Web Forms in VS 2022
Microsoft last week set the record straight that Web Forms, part of ASP.NET from the old .NET Framework, isn't going away in Visual Studio 2022, though it recommends Blazor as a .NET 6 alternative.
That news came in the announcement of Visual Studio 2022 17.2:
"In the initial release of Visual Studio 2022 we introduced a new capability for those working with Web Forms applications and the designer. Web Live Preview enables your running app to be the design surface and provides code synchronization across source and web surface to help you navigate directly to the code file for the element you are editing.
After continued studies of developers with Web Forms apps, we have improved the experiences even more in this release. We have also worked with several ASP.NET control vendors to ensure their support in this new designer. If you are working in Web Forms, please switch to this feature using Tools > Options > Web Forms Designer options menu and continue to give us feedback!
In response to a comment questioning Web Forms support, Microsoft said: "Web Forms is NOT deprecated, the framework support is limited to critical updates, but all ASP.NET full .NET Framework projects are fully supported. While we are not investing in the Web Forms framework, we still need to ensure that Web Forms developers can successfully develop their apps in Visual Studio."
Visual Studio 2022 17.2
Visual Studio 2022 17.2 reached General Availability status this week
Other highlights of the release as described by Microsoft include:
- Raw string literal: "In C# 11 we added a new language feature called raw string literals. We now have a refactoring to convert a normal or verbatim string literal to a raw string literal."
- Debugging collections: "We recently highlighted this capability in a Visual Studio 17.2 Preview 2, but it bears repeating again. If you regularly debug your .NET code and want to inspect into large and maybe complex collections, we've introduced a new visualizer in the debugging experience for IEnumerable object types."
- Razor editor: "Since 17.1 we've been improving the reliability of the new Razor editing experience. In 17.2 we've added support in the editor for:
- Ability to collapse regions for easy readability and organization
- The new Razor editor now supports snippet functionality in C# code!
- We've heard you and the 'wrap div' shortcut is enabled, use Shift + Alt + W to execute"
- Web Live Preview for ASP.NET Framework: "In the initial release of Visual Studio 2022 we introduced a new capability for those working with Web Forms applications and the designer. Web Live Preview enables your running app to be the design surface and provides code synchronization across source and web surface to help you navigate directly to the code file for the element you are editing."
- C++: "C++20 modules support is coming to CMake in Visual Studio! You can try out our experimental support now by ensuring you are supplying the /std:c++20 or /std:c++latest switches to the compiler and using the MSBuild (Visual Studio) generator for CMake rather than Ninja." Also boosting C++ development are inline hints and enhanced peripheral register and RTOS views for embedded developers, introduced in v17.1.
- Git tooling: "We continue to work on enhancing the Git experience in Visual Studio. Line-staging support was introduced in Visual Studio 17.2 Preview and now you can also enable it in 17.2 GA by going to the preview features pane and toggling the 'Enable line-staging support' checkbox."
- Enterprise support: "Version 17.2 is the second long term servicing channel (LTSC) for Visual Studio 2022. Servicing channels provide large organizations increased flexibility over when they choose to adopt the new features that are released with minor version updates to the Enterprise, Professional, and Build Tools editions. The 17.2 LTSC release will be supported for 18 months, through January 9, 2024."
