Sample Web Page Using Mono And XSP On Windows Box

- 1 answer

I'm attempting to get my first ASP.NET web page working on windows using Mono and the XSP web server.

I'm following this chaps example. The first part of his example works very well with the latest version of mono. however the web part seems to fall over with the following error

'{Path Name}\Index.aspx.cs' is not a valid virtual path.

Here's the full Stack Trace:

System.Web.HttpException: 'C:\Projects\Mono\ASPExample\simpleapp\index.aspx.cs' is not a valid virtual path.

   at System.Web.HttpApplication+<Pipeline>c__Iterator5.MoveNext () [0x00000] 

I was wondering if anyone knew what this error meant. I guess i'm looking for a mono expert, who's tried out the windows version.

Hey i don't know how to get the "code behind" stuff working but i've found a workaround that i'm happy with. I thought i'd post it up here for the benefit of others. Basically you move the code behind into the main page and it works great just by using the

XSD command and no parameters.
