VS.NET 2005 is ignoring in web.config strict="true". I get no error when I try this: Dim x As Integer = "string"


I have this in my VS.NET 2005 web.config

<compilation debug="true" strict="true" explicit="true">

When I do this in my vb code:

Dim x As Integer = "string"

I get no error. When I hit compilation I also get no error.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for helping!

It's a bug of some sort

See this response by Scott Guthrie


Unfortunately we don’t have a GUI based way to configure this. L It is something we will make sure gets added back in, though, with the next release.

There are two suggestions I can make in the meantime:

1) You can modify the default templates within your projects to have Option Strict On by default. You can find these templates under your C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\VWDExpress\ItemTemplates\Web\VisualBasic\1033 directory (just search for webform.aspx on your system to find them all).

2) You can enable option strict a compiler option by adding this to your web.config file in your application:

<compiler language="vb" extension=".vb" type="Microsoft.VisualBasic.VBCodeProvider, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" compilerOptions="/optionstrict+"/>

Note that this second option will only validate your page during explicit “Build Page” or “Build Website” compilation checks. But it will provide a way to enforce Option Strict in your projects.

Hope this helps,

Hi Teemu,

Have you implemented this fix?  My web.config does not understand the <compilers> element.

Yeah, I have. If I recall correctly, mine didn't neither but it worked. So if you don't get any specific errors while runninng it, don't mind about it. :-)

Thanks Teemu. It does run fine; I am just getting messages when I build my project. I thought it was preventing a build, but that was another problem.

Based on information I got: This is going to be included in next SP for ASP.NET. It's independent of VS bits, so in practise it means next SP for .NET FX

Get "Mail"/"Get "News" / "Write"/"Post" buttons?
If the "Get Mail" button text changed to "Get News", and "Write" changed to "Post" when TB's in the news-reading mode, it would save me and probably others from constantly forgetting to make the change before proceeding. :-) Or is there an extension to do this which I don't know about?

"Get Mail" vs "Get All New Messages"
I have a few different email accounts set up in Thunderbird, and I'm using the unified view to view them. Recently, I noticed that the "Get Mail" button seems to only retrieve email for the first account (sometimes?). I'd like to click on that button and retrieve email for all of the accounts. I can get the behavior that I want consistently if I pull down the menu for "Get Mail" and select "Get All New Messages", but I'd prefer to get that in a single click if possible. I tried starting from scratch and recreating my profile, but I st...

"x = " vs. "var x = "
Just a quick q: why does the expression "var x = 5" return "undefined"? The expression "x = 5" returns 5, as I would expect.

Feature Request: "Get Extensions" and "Get Themes"
I think that when you click on the "Get Extensions" or "Get Themes" links, it should open depending on your default window-opening behavior. For example, all new windows for me open up in new tabs.

Script to perform a "Get latest", then a "Build", then a "Publish"
I frequently have to copy out of source safe, the latest version of some source code. Then perform a build and then a publish. The publish is published to a local directory where I then copy it out to a server. This is a bit of a hassle to have to do all of this mannualy. What I would prefer to do is to use some type of script that would do this. Does anyone know if this is possible? I can manage copying to the server. I just need a script that I could kick off to do the following. 1. Copy the latest source code for the project out of source safe. 2. Perform a build of the projec...

Trying to transfer a Web Service made in .NET aspx on my "localhost", to online and getting BC30002: Type 'localhost.Convert' is not defined. error
I think I get the general idea of this error.  The webservice works on my computer as Visual Web Developer somehow makes a temporary server out of my computer.  But when I try to FTP my full ASP page I get an error that localhost is not defined.  This makes sense as I am sure the web server for GoDaddy is not called localhost for me.  Now in my App_WebReferences folder in my program I have a local host folder that holds 3 automatically generated files which are somehow "calls" to a webservice that I built.  So I have the original files for the webservi...
