Asp designer file not updating

What this means is that you don’t plainly see all there is to see at design time in terms of code, and you’re relying on Visual Studio to provide you with a rich design-time experience with Intelli Sense.Figure 1: Opening and creating projects is much easier in Visual Studio 2005 simply by selecting a directory in the file system.Once opened the directory acts as the project, providing the file content for the project-there’s no explicit project file in Web projects.Most of the time you don’t need to worry about these internals because they are encapsulated within the ASP. However, once you step beyond simple scenarios and run into situations where the simple method just doesn’t work, you as the developer have to fully understand all of the intricacies of this complex model in order to make it work for you. The compiler offers many options to compile your projects including in-place compilation, which requires source code distribution, pre-compiled compilation into all binary code, and partial compilation, which compiles your user code, but lets you distribute and modify the ASPX markup pages.Depending on the type of applications, this will affect some developers more than others. There are at least 16 different compilation and pre-compilation combinations and none of them are likely to be exactly what you want-most combinations produce non-repeatable installs and none of the stock combinations create a single deployable assembly that most developers would expect from a pre-compiled application.
