Web technology has been evolving at an ever-quickening pace in recent years, and with so many companies supporting legacy Web Forms applications, it should come as no surprise that these questions are coming up more frequently right now. We’d love to help your team get started with it, too. But, in other ways, the server-side technologies have become even more important as both an initial delivery method for the client application and as its service, security, and data-access layer. NET right now, but their is a large existing community of developers and companies using it, too. Finally, our friends at Jet Brains, makers of the famed Resharper plugin, have recently announced their very own cross-platform . In short, there are a lot of exciting things happen in ASP. Perhaps uniquely in the industry right now, it has the support, excitement, high performance, industry-leading tooling, and community of developers that you will need to build and staff your cutting-edge web projects. NET Core extensively in new projects, and we love it! NET Web Forms will stay largely what it is today and be supported by the . NET Core, the cross-platform, rewritten version of . So, even from that perspective, it looks like Web Forms could be waning.However, we often find that Web Forms applications are written with all their different layers mingled together, and to truly get them ready for the future, they often need to be heavily rewritten . It’s a mature framework, so it’s to be expected that the updates wouldn’t be as large and significant as they were in the early days. NET Framework have been released since then (4.6.1 – 4.7.1) without any new features specifically for Web Forms.

All these are using the same core so you can choose the one that you prefer.* *Unsuccessful Conversion At this time, you can use the log file to identify what caused the error and try to fix the error manually.If you resolve the error reported in the log file, you can try the upgrade process again to give the Utility the chance to process the upgrade tasks that have not been completed yet.The next screen allows you to update the Visual Studio Tool Box with the newly selected controls, so that you avoid accidental reference change during a control drag and drop.It also gives you the ability to choose whether to create a backup of the project or not: After choosing the preferred options and pressing the Finish button, the Upgrade Wizard will replace the existing assemblies in the selected project(s) with the ones from the selected distribution.It can facilitate the process of upgrading the Telerik® UI for ASP.

NET still a good framework to use to build a new application? We can understand your legacy code AND help you upgrade it to something modern. Web Forms is just one (and the oldest) framework for building applications in ASP. Things like Web API, Signal R, and MVC are all more modern ASP. Trailhead’s knowledge of Microsoft’s development technologies is both wide and deep, and our long experience over their history gives us a unique perspective.
