Importing custom ASP.NET tags

Importing custom ASP.NET tags

You can import custom ASP.NET tags into Dreamweaver.

Before you begin, make sure that the custom tag is installed on the testing server defined in the Site Definition dialog box (see Specifying where dynamic pages can be processed). Compiled tags (.dll files) must be placed in the site root’s /bin folder. Non-compiled tags (.ascx files) can reside in any virtual directory or subdirectory on the server. For more information, see the Microsoft ASP.NET documentation.

To import ASP.NET custom tags into Dreamweaver:

  1. Open an ASP.NET page in Dreamweaver.
  2. Open the Tag Library editor (Edit > Tag Libraries).
  3. Click the Plus (+) button and do one of the following:
    • To import all the ASP.NET custom tags from the application server, select ASP.NET > Import All ASP.NET Custom Tags.
    • To import only certain custom tags from the application server, select ASP.NET > Import Selected ASP.NET Custom Tags.

    The Import Selected ASP.NET Custom Tags dialog box appears, listing every ASP.NET custom tag installed on the application server. Control-click (Windows) or Command-click (Macintosh) tags from the list and click OK.
