how to use it for editing web part HTML

Oct 14, 2009 at 9:34 AM


I'm new in SharePoint developing, I'm trying to find a way to edit my Web Part UI using HTML, and I was directed to this add-on. So, can this add-on help me editing my web part HTML? or amend the UI visually?

Note: I already have a project (Web Part project), not creating new one, can I use this add-on with an existing project and edit it?

Yes you can use this tool to create a feature containing a web part. Although there are other scenarios where the gain of using this tool is more noticable, you may find it suitable for your task as well.
If you already have a project created you may not find this tool suitable to do your task because it uses a mirrored 12-hive folder and maybe that is not hte case with your project?
You can always activate SPVisualDev features to a created project which will create or use a existing 12 hive folder in the project root.
