Microsoft just released an updated hotfix to the Visual Studio 2008 Serialization issue.

Why release an update?

When the hotfix was released, several developers found that it caused other issues. You can read about it the comments section here.

Microsoft’s Mikhail Arkhipov followed up with the developers’ issues and fixed the bugs.

It seems to have slowed the designer down to pre-SP1 speeds, but it works.

Was this hotfix update meant to fix the issue with &nbsp appearing all over the place when making changes to the designer?

Since applying the hotfix I still get errors such as this...

<DataItemTemplate>

<input id="Radio1" type="radio" value='<%#GetFieldValue(Container.DataItem) %>' <%#GetFieldChecked(Container.DataItem)%> name="myradio"/>

</DataItemTemplate>

changed to....

<DataItemTemplate>

<input id="Radio1" <%#getfieldchecked(container.dataitem)%>="" name="myradio" type="radio" value="<%# GetFieldValue(Container.DataItem) %>" />    

                   

</DataItemTemplate>

(apologies if that's a bit unreadable above)

Hi Geraint,

Just tested that and it seems to keep the formatting. It maybe something else with your VS instance.

Vikas,

Contact Microsoft as they can help you with VS. For uninstalling the hotfix, look for the KB number in your uninstall list.
