Do you have "smaller" sample websites to open in Visual Studio?

I have a quad-core, w/ 4 gig of mem, and when I open the sample website, it takes forever to load/build/debug, etc. Often it just hangs and then crashes because the site is so large. It would be very helpful to open samples of individual controls ... like the TreeView, and another for the Grid control, etc.

Does anyone else have problems with the enormous individual sample site?

Thanks!

It seems that breakpoints in the sample website are what cause all the issues? Has anyone succcesfully placed breakpoints in the sample website and run it?

On mine (just upgraded to vs 2008 sp1), if any breakpoints are present, it causes all the windows on the machine to flicker like a vegas hotel. Other projects work fine ... I suspect the size of the sample website is causes VS 2008 to choke while debugging.

Do any others experience this?

Hello Jay,

Actually you can easily view the desired example just by clicking on it with the right mouse button and select "View in browser". You don't need to build the whole solution because it is huge and it is normally to take a lot of time.

Regarding breakpoints: debugging information and breakpoints (debug="true" in web.config) can definitely cause a performance issues to such a solution.

That's too bad. Stepping through your samples with the debugger is a great way to learn the product. This is impossible with the way the samples are bundled (there are 10,000 files in that website so it chokes Visual Studio while setting breakpoints).

I encourage you to consider splitting the samples into smaller, manageable pieces so that people can step through your samples.
