This is more of a popular / common practice question more than anything. Just looking for opinions. So as the title asks: How popular / widely used is the WSAT functionality in visual studio these days? I know it is a matter of preference to some degree, but are they really that helpful any more? Why would you choose to use it verses building the interface? (other than the time you may save coding / laying out pages etc.). Just wanted to get some input / thoughts on this. Thanks for your time in advance.
