After the dialog box disappears, the main Visual Web Developer Window opens, which has several menus and windows (see Figure 8-10). Visual Web Developer has dozens of features and capabilities. I won t go into all of them here, but you can use the online documentation (if you downloaded the MSDN documentation during installation) or return to the Visual Web Developer web site at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/express/aa700797.aspx.

Setting Up the Block Test Harness
What you are going to do next is get the Popfly SDK block test harness up and running within Visual Web Developer (VWD). In order to do that, we have to create a new web site project in VWD. Select File New Web Site (see Figure 8-11).
Figure 8-11. Selecting New Web Site
CHAPTER 8 GETTING STARTED WITH THE POPFLY BLOCK SDK
Selecting that menu item opens the New Web Site dialog box (shown in Figure 8-12). The Popfly Block SDK is written using the .NET language called C# (say C Sharp ). It is a powerful language that is very similar to JavaScript. Once again, there are entire books written about C#, so I won t go into that here. Just understand that, in order for the test harness to run properly, the language of the project must be set to C#. Select Visual C# as the language of the site. Select Empty Web Site from the Visual Studio Installed Templates section of the dialog box. Set the Location to File System. Click the Browse button, and select the directory of the block SDK. In my case, it is located on I:|\Book Writing\Apress\ Foundations of Popfly\BlockSDK\Tester with BlockSDK\Tester being the root directory of the test harness shown in Figure 8-12.
Figure 8-12. Selecting New Web Site
Click the OK button, and the Web Site Already Exists dialog box should appear (see Figure 8-13). By default, the Select a new folder to create your Web site option is selected. We don t want to do this, because it will create a new folder underneath the root folder (i.e., BlockSDK\Tester\Tester). Select Open the existing Web site , because we want to use the Tester root folder as our web site.

Figure 8-13. Selecting Open the existing Web site
After pressing the OK button, you will be returned to the VWD main window. To the upper left is a window with Solution Explorer tab that represents the web site you just created (see Figure 8-14). The Solution Explorer is a tree list that works like a virtual disk drive showing you all of the files and folders that the project uses. You should see all of the folders and many of the files that you saw in the root Tester folder in Figure 8-14. A couple of files are hidden, but we will go into that later.
Figure 8-14. Visual Web Developer s Solution Explorer
Select the project at the top of the list to select the project. Below the Solution Explorer is the Properties window (see Figure 8-15). As you select folders and objects in the Solution Explorer, the folder or objects properties show in this window. With the project selected,
CHAPTER 8 GETTING STARTED WITH THE POPFLY BLOCK SDK
you can see the Tester project properties. Notice the first property called Developer Web Server. VWD has a preconfigured internal web server there s no need to install a separate web server to do your testing. Leave the default setting for port number and dynamic ports. Set the virtual path property to a slash character (/) for the test harness to work properly.
