The System.Web.Extensions assembly .
It is an assembly released with orcas.It delivers
-asp.net new controls
-built in ajax support ie for latest version of vs we have built in ajax support.
orcas has support to linq and its assemblies so if we convert a project from any version to .net 3.5 we get many features.
lets see how can we convert project ..
-open you existing and working project
-go to solution explorer
-clik on properties
-under application we can see target framework
- we find framework versions 2.0,3.0 and 3.5
-select one enough
your work is done.
Now lets see what happens inside this process. For this inner process happenning, we have to know first what is change if we change from version to version.
compiler settings are changing accordingly and new options are being added. The same thing happens here also.
- compiler setting are changed automatically by vs2008
- new assemblies are being added.
- new controls are being added to tool box
Lets see what are those exactly.
if we convert to framework 3.5 we get assemblies like
list view will be added to data controls section
intellisence support and many more will be added.
converting might result in greater advantage for developers to work with all latest techniques added in latest version.
