Hi there

I am trying to create a custom item/page template for my web project in VISUAL STUDIO 2005. I am using the following article as a basis:

http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/09/09/424780.aspx

The problem I am getting is that the Marker I am setting in the inherits property of the aspx file and the class name in the aspx.cs file are not being substituted with the file name that I designate when I use the template to add a new web page to my project.

The marker is setup as follows:

ASPX file:
<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPages/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="default_template.aspx.cs" Inherits="$pagename$" Title="Untitled Page" %>


ASPX.CS file:
public partial class $pagename$ : CustomBasePage

When I create my new web page using the template, the "$pagename$" remains meaning I have to manually edit it rather than it substituting automatically when the page is created.

Anyone know why this might be happening?

Cheers

Hi yvsupport,

Your template must use specific marker name
see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/eehb4faa(VS.80).aspx

So, use $safeclassname$ instead of $pagename$

Hi there

I didn't know those names were specifically defined. I tried $safeclassname$ but that didn't work either so I tried $safeitemname$, which is the one used in the article that I mentioned in my original post and amazingly it works. Much strangeness ..... Anyway, I shall mark your comment as the solution as you certainly pointed me in the right direction :)

Cheers

In fact, the template parameter name depends on which action will generate the value :
$safeclassname$  when you add a new class
$safeitemname$  when you add a new item
