Is it possible to preview (split view etc) the .view files in vs 2008


Currently i can only see the source..

Any ideas?

VS2008 only identifies certain file types as HTML by default. You can right-click on one of your view files and choose "Open With" and then choose "HTML Editor" (and set as the default if you want). This will give you the ability to use the design and split views. Because of the Chalk code in place in view files, it really doesn't work all too well, but if you really want that view, you can do it.

What would you recommend then for designing an Chalk/HTML page ??


Is there an alternative?
