First Tip On SharePoint 2010

recently I got involved in a SharePoint project. I am not a SharePoint pro but I have the opportunity to work with some of best SharePoint professionals so I am learning as I go.

I thought it would be useful to share what I learn. although some of them maybe basic but I am sure they would help somebody out there who is just picking up on SharePoint.

So first tip would be on working with CSS files. you when I wanted to change something in CSS I was doing this stupid work of doing the changes and publishing the site/web part to see the result. because of the size of the project this was a time consuming task. but Mr. Z suggested a trick to work on the css file and change them in place where the changes would reflect without deployment.

here is the trick. Go to you 14 hive folder. it should be at the following address on your computer

C:\Program Files\Common files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14

in the 14 hive find the css folder and in the folder find the css file you want to work on. open the file with you desired css editor and start editing the file. once done just save it and refresh you browser. boom here you go seeing the changes without deploying the file.

but remember to copy and paste the content of the css file into your development copy in visual studio when you are done with changes.
