TechDays: Dino Esposito’s ASP.NET 4.0 highlights
In short, ASP.NET 4.0, gives you more control.
- CSS friendly HTML from Server Controls by default.
- EnableViewState does not work as you expect in ASP.NET 2.0. With the new ViewStateMode property with values: Inherit, Enable and Disable you get what you expect.
- I think Auto-Encoding is going to be valuable for EPiServer Developers. The Auto encoding blocks “<%: … %>” and the IHtmlString marker interface that ensures you do not encode a string twice.
- For SEO there are properties on Page class for MetaKeywords and MetaDescription. Also support for both 301 and 302 redirects and Routing gives Friendly URL instead of path to aspx-files.
