Significant update to ProfileView
As promised, with the recent release of Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1, I have created an updated version of the ProfileView control. The most noticeable new features:
- Much better WYSIWYG experience, as the control now renders your profile at design time. (Eternal thanks to this post on accessing web.config at design-time - I searched high and low for this information and came up empty - the newsgroups are littered with unanswered questions on this. I guess I got lucky that someone at TechEd Europe decided to talk about it. UPDATE: I've found an even better solution for accessing web.config at design-time.)
- A new read-only mode that allows users to view their profile without being able to edit it.
- FREE SOURCE CODE
I've also created a new home for the ProfileView files. Instead of creating links to different versions in each blog post, each of my blog entries will now reference this article. I will keep the article updated with all of the latest ProfileView happenings.
Go get FlimFlan.WebControls.ProfileView and tell me what you think.
