Up until recently, I've been running my web app fine. But now all of a sudden, I have to import System and Import System.Web.Ui and such on every form it seems.

What would have changed?

Always been using VS2008 and 3.5 framework SP1. Nothing's changed that I know of.

thanks.

I cannot imagine a code without import System.
System.Web.UI shall be expected if you are coding asp pages.

Well, something's changed. I didn't remove an import from all these files and I didn't need it before.

Also, the Dynamic Data that was generated also did not have the Imports in by default, and now it is requiring it.

In VB.NET you get some namespaces declared for free. These are defined in the <namespaces> node of the web.config. I would guess that something has caused the default template for your web.config to change, and or someone has modified the web.config you are using. Otherwise I am guessing some sort of corruption I haven't seen before or an install of a framework component that was installed had unexpected results...

I'm guessin it's just the web.config <namespaces> node...take a look this is what VS puts into my web.config by default:

            <pages>
                  <namespaces>
                        <clear/>
                        <add namespace="System"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Collections"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Collections.Generic"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Collections.Specialized"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Configuration"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Text"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Text.RegularExpressions"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Linq"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Xml.Linq"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.Caching"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.SessionState"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.Security"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.Profile"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.UI"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts"/>
                        <add namespace="System.Web.UI.HtmlControls"/>
                  </namespaces>
                  <controls>
                        <add tagPrefix="asp" namespace="System.Web.UI" assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
                        <add tagPrefix="asp" namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls" assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
                  </controls>

Could be a corrupted file, bad reference, etc. Sometimes stuff happens.  I seem to recall a similar issue. Even though you shouldn't have to, you might try adding the necessary references to the project(s). Right-click on your procect in Solution Explorer, select 'Add Reference'. Under the '.NET' tab, select the desired namespace(s).

ddayx,
I see it now.
This is my web.config:

<namespaces>
<add namespace="System" />
<add namespace="System.Collections.Generic" />
<add namespace="System.Data" />
<add namespace="System.Data.SqlClient" />
<add namespace="System.Web.Security" />
<add namespace="System.Web.UI" />
<add namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls" />
<clear />
<add namespace="System.Collections" />
<add namespace="System.Collections.Specialized" />
 
Notice the <clear/> stuck in there. Don't know how that got there!
The ones above it are all the "missing" ones.
Thanks for the help! That did it! Finally! Adding Imports for those 7 namespaces was driving me nuts! And I was no where near finished!
Thanks!
