Making changes to codebehind .aspx.vb files without recompiling?

Do I always need to recompile the codebehind files when developing a website?  Sometimes it's convenient for me to change the codebehind file from a text editor without the Visual Studio environment.

Is there a way to have my pages skip the loading of the compiled DLL files and ONLY use the codebehind file? At least until I'm satisfied and compile the code?

Here is how my page calls the required libraries:

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="fishstore.aspx.vb" Inherits="FishSite.fishstore"%>

Thank you.

If you change the code, then YES you will need to recompile the Code-behind, to re-build the DLL for the site.

The ASP.NET does NOT know anything about VB.NET, or any other .NET language, directly.  The only thing that it deals with is the compiled DLL for the site.

the @Page directive that you are refering to is for the Complier's purposes, and that NEVER gets to the ASPX page that is processed by the ASP.NET processor within IIS.
