How to build the module with Visual studio

Feb 11, 2011 at 2:30 AM

Hi,

I used Orchard code generation to create the module. It did created in the Module folder, but I don't see it in visual studio project. How do I do that?

You should have used the /IncludeInSolution:true flag, but it's not too late, you can still right click on the Modules folder in Visual Studio, choose add an existing project and navigate to the new module's csproj file.

Hello Betrand, there is no add existing project when you click Modules folder in Vis Studio.

I mean if you are using the Orchard.Web project. It is available only if using the source project.

If you are going to use Visual Studio to do module creation, you should get the full source code.

Could you please let me know what will be the advantage to use full source code? I thought using orchard codegen we could crate the project in the visual stuido solution.

There is no solution file in the Orchard.Web zip file.

While it is possible to do module development with just that version, it will be considerably easier with the full source. You'll be able to debug into the framework, you'll get a full solution with all the module projectsw, etc.
