CSS validation error VS 2010

I must have changed a setting in my project, but don't know what it is.  Everything was fine, except now I get two errors -

Validation (CSS 2.1): 'overflow-x' is not a known CSS property name.      


'Text' is not a member of 'Label'.

I would rather not turn errors off.  Is there a way to update the CSS validation?  These are good properties.

Unfortunately, VS does not include validation rules for CSS3.  Are you kidding me?  IE8 barely supports CSS2.  Which is again why I would never put any faith or reliance on a CSS validator built by Microsoft.  Don't get me wrong, they have many great products... but they have failed miserably in the area of CSS.  You should trust the people that write the specification:


To disable error detection in VS, you can go to:

Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> CSS -> Miscellaneous
overflow-x; overflow-y are properties of CSS3 version
Just answered another question recently about VS and CSS validation... and we came to the conclusion to disable CSS validation for 2 reasons:

1) CSS 3 is becoming more popular and widely used
2) Who would trust a CSS validator built by Microsoft ;)

So, how would I use CSS3 to validate in VS2010, or how do I disable CSS validation?

Thats what i'll do.

If I may extend the question...  I am now getting a compilation error on this line

- Line 362:        lableSchno.Text = "&nbsp&nbsp" + "Schedule # " + strSchno.ToString

Compiler Error Message : BC30456: Text is not a member of 'Label'

Is this related
That shouldn't be related.  You need to make sure that you are actually targeting a .NET Label control.  Here is basically what you should have

(Note: I changed a couple things that didn't really look right)

<asp:Label ID="lableSchno" runat="server" />

lableSchno.Text = "&nbsp;&nbsp;Schedule # " + strSchno.ToString();

Open in new window

Hmm... I'm adding it on the fly.      

 Dim lableSchno As New Label

        lableSchno.Text = "&nbsp;&nbsp;Schedule # " + strSchno.ToString
Hmm, that looks good to me.  Can you try removing those 2 lines and seeing if your code still works.  Maybe you could show me the surrounding code... maybe copy the entire function and paste it here.

i'm not the best at VB, but I'll take a look at it.
sabevAuthor Commented:
Wooohhh.....  I commented out the line, and the app now tries to load a file called label.aspx.  (it is one of mine).  There is no place in the code that I currently reference that file (I commented it all out).

This particular project is a copy of another project that works perfectly fine.  I mean, I litterally copied every thing from the good one and just dropped it in a new ISS virtual directory.  Very strange.

I'm going to nuke it and start over.

I'll post back once I've done that.
sabevAuthor Commented:
Hokay.  Working fine now.  I suspect that something got corrupt in IIS.

Thanks again DesignBy
no worries.  Usually, when you have code that you know is valid, but the compiler throws you an error, then the problem is really elsewhere.  Glad you got it working.
