    Hi All,

     

    I am new to DotNet Nuke, just installed DNN version 9.11.0 couple of days back.

     

    I am looking forward to create modules using Visual studio 2019, as I may have to create complex modules like fetching data from our custom local data base and other similar requirements.

     

    For such kind of modules development can I simply add DNN site configured at my local IIS into my Visual Studio 2019? And start adding UserControls (.ascx) directly in to DesktopModules folder of the DNN site through my Visual studio. Once development is done for these user controls I will add these user controls as modules in DNN site.

     

    Here is the link explaining how I can add that DNN site in my visual studio. Please confirm if it will work.

      This looks a bit old, evenif it should work like this.

      There are a lot of videos on this site that explain developing DNN extensions of any kind. Have a look!

      Also look at the Docs, there are a lot of helpful resources.

      Happy DNNing!

        Hi Michael,

        Thanks for the help.

        I have gone through some of the links on google and find that I need to configure package as mentioned in below url in Visual studio before proceeding further for creating modules for DNN using visual studio.

        https://www.dnnsoftware.c...-with-templates.html

        Is there some other technique possible for creating DNN modules using visual studio.

        Regards

          Chris Hammond's templates are a good starting point, esp. when you are not very experienced in DNN module development (but ASP.Net, HTML, JS...)

          Happy DNNing!

            As a provider of module development templates ourselves, I agree that the Christoc templates are generally the best option for newer developers, as noted in the documentation as well.  😎
