I am attempting to understand the master page definition in vs 2012. I have developed several projects in vs 2008.
Here is what I have done:
Using ASP.NET Master Pages in Visual Web Developer
.NET Framework 4
To create the master page
In Solution Explorer, right-click the name of your Web site, and then click Add New Item.
Under Visual Studio installed templates, click Master Page.
In the Name box, type Master1. (There is no Name box)
To create a layout table for the master page
With the Master1.master file selected in Source view, use the Target Schema for Validation drop-down list on the toolbar to set the target schema to Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.
Problems :Source view is the default. Where is the toolbar that contains the target schema option?
Switch to Design view.
Problem: Cannot select Design view
