Mon Mar 7 – applied topics in ASP.NET Web Forms app development


BTI420 Test 2 is today

BTI420 Test 2 will be this today, during our regular session together.

You can have the full two periods to complete the test.

The test will be done on a computer (a classroom computer, or your own). There are two programming tasks:

  1. You will work with the web server file system in some way
  2. You will work with data access in some way, through an Entity Framework data model

The following lists the reference resources which are permitted and those which are not allowed. The philosophy is that you will do your own thinking about the question and solve it yourself, rather than relying on constructing answers from bits of copy-paste code.


  • One single hand-printed paper-based reference sheet (see the “Reference Sheet Guidelines” in my web site Course Policies section)
  • Access to online material or other printed material

Not allowed:

  • Complete, or substantially complete, program code listings on your reference sheet
  • Any means that lets you easily copy-and-paste complete or substantially complete sections of code

Please read my web site’s “Your responsibilities” and “Course Policies” pages, especially the Tests and Other Graded Work section.

WARNING! You will simply not be able to construct working answers using a copy-paste method, where you try to find the “right” blocks of code, and build, Frankenstein style, a working program. Believe me – you won’t have time to do that.

You can use the existing code resources as a reference, but then you must WRITE YOUR OWN CODE. And be warned, I do NOT want to see MY code in your pages! If you do use my code, you will be in violation of the College’s academic honesty policies.


Best wishes on the test.


During the test, work locally, and then “copy web site” to submit your test

During the test, you will work locally, on a “file system web site”, on your local computer.

Then, before you leave the room, you will “copy web site” to a NEW sub-web site, on the warp server. Make sure you allow about ten minutes for this process.

Here is an overview of what you will have to do:

In your Solution Explorer panel, click to select your web site. Then, from either the Solution Explorer toolbar, or from the Visual Studio menu, choose “Copy Web Site”.

On the Copy Web Site window/panel, click the Connect button. On the “Open Web Site” dialog, click (on the left side) “Remote Site”. Enter the “Web site location” as shown in the example below:


Notice the web site address format:


Obviously, replace <yourWebSiteName> with the “bti420…” name of your warp web site.

And, replace <subwebName> with the name of the new subweb web site (example – “abcd”).

Note: The name of the sub-web site will be specified on the Test 2 paper.


You will then be prompted as follows. Answer Yes.


Visual Studio will create your new sub-web site. Then, on the “Copy Web” window/panel, you can can select and copy content from your local file system web site, to the warp-based web site (similar to what you’ve done many times before).

When you browse to the sub-web Default.aspx page, you will enter its name in the browser’s address bar as follows:
