Selecting the FrontPage or Visual Studio .NET Publishing Model

Visual Studio has a Copy Project command that serves much the same purpose as the Publish command in FrontPage. The Copy Project command, however, has much different options. If you want Visual Studio to copy an ASP.NET project from one location to another, proceed as follows:

1.
Open the ASP.NET project in Visual Studio.

2.
Choose Copy Project from the Project menu. This displays the Copy Project dialog box, shown in Figure 43-9.

Figure 43-9. The settings in this dialog box control the way Visual Studio copies a project from one location to another.


3.
Use the Destination Project Folder box to specify the target of the copy operation. You can enter this location either by typing or by clicking the ellipsis (...) button to the right of the text box.

4.
Choose a Web access method. The possibilities are:

  • FrontPage Select this option to publish the files though the FrontPage Server Extensions.

  • File Share Select this option to copy the files to a local disk or network file sharing location. Then, in the Path box, enter the location that corresponds to the Destination Project Folder location you specified in step 3.

5.
In the Copy section, select which files you want to copy. Here are the possibilities:

  • Only Files Needed To Run This Application Select this option to copy compilation output such as DLLs and references from the bin folder, plus any files that have a Build Action property of Content.

  • All Project Files Select this option to copy compilation output and all files in the project. This copies the same files as the previous option, plus the project file and all source files.

  • All Files In The Source Project Folder Select this option to copy all files in the project folder tree.

6.
Click OK to initiate the copy operation.
