I'm working through moving modules to DNN7, VS2013, and sometimes converting to C#.  One thing that I'm struggling with is the ModuleAuditControl. Back in the DNN3 days I had a "custom" version that had username and time for both insert and update. That's not necessary anymore, but I can't find an example of using ModuleAuditControl in the designer so it shows up in Intellesense so I can see what the properties are. I see the source ASCX in the full source, but I don't see the source codebehind.

So as a result the names I picked way back when don't match the official version and my code doesn't compile. I can't find doc, or an example, so I either keep my "custom" version which seems silly, or find somewhere current it's being used (harder than I thought).

Now I will say I don't have any DNN controls in the designer, but since I have tons of examples it's not been an issue. I'd like to do that too, so maybe someone can help be kill two birds with one stone (pun intended).

you can either browse to the file itself i.e. DNN Platform\Library\UI\UserControls\ModuleAuditControl.cs in the source (or view the current version at https://github.com/dnnsoftware/Dnn.Pl... ), but if you've in vs.net the easiest thing to do is to use the object browser (view->object browser) and enter the type and vs.net will show you the details (you can change the object browser to only show public properties if that's all you care about)

Thanks for the source link so I have the correct names, but the core problem seems to be specific to the upgrades to VS2013. In the "good old days" I referenced ctlAudit.something , with this in the .ascx file:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="Audit" Src="~/controls/ModuleAuditControl.ascx" %>

<dnn:audit id="ctlAudit" runat="server" />

The old projects didn't have a .designer file and although I've managed to get most of it corrected the DNN controls are problematic. If I reference ctlAudit in the code it's undefined, so I assume I need to get it into the designer, but making updates to the .ascx doesn't put references to ModuleAudit there and I don't see it in the Toolbox. I also get this on the label and audit controls:

Warning 88 Element 'audit' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site, or the web.config file is missing. C:\Users\Keith Stone.CREWSTONE\Documents\My Web Sites\DNN720\DesktopModules\RaceBaseCS\EditEntrant.ascx 762 6 RaceBaseCS

Warning 1 Element 'label' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site, or the web.config file is missing. C:\Users\Keith Stone.CREWSTONE\Documents\My Web Sites\DNN720\DesktopModules\RaceBaseCS\EditEntrant.ascx 8 6 RaceBaseCS

I get the same in VB, but I also get a bunch of these also:

Warning 16 Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'DotNetNuke' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases. C:\Users\Keith Stone.CREWSTONE\Documents\My Web Sites\DNN720\DesktopModules\RaceBaseVB\EntrantResultsView.ascx 205 12 RaceBaseVB

 

Now I can get these modules to work, just without the DNN controls.

OK, what I ended up doing was brute forcing the control definition into the .designer file:

        /// <summary>

        /// ctlAudit control.

        /// </summary>

        /// <remarks>

        /// Auto-generated field.

        /// To modify move field declaration from designer file to code-behind file.

        /// </remarks>

        protected global::DotNetNuke.UI.UserControls.ModuleAuditControl ctlAudit;

May not be pretty, but then I can use it and it compiles clean. I can force that definition when I auto generate the .designer files in my CodeSmith templates, but I guess the only option is brute force when you create a page form scratch.

you can set the application url and then dnn can navigate to the definition - see http://mitchelsellers.com/blogs/2009/...
