I'm going through the MVC 3 tutorials and working on cshtml, how do design the views "Visually" like we do in ASP.Net that we can see the HTML and Design surface?
Why doesn't VS10 show a design tab?

There are no WebControls as in WebForms and most of the times you need to go through an Action to get the view. Why to spend so much time to create a designer that runs your site behind the scenes when you can just hit F5?

With MVC there is a more 1 to one relation among helpers and controls, this means that you can create your page with ANY html authoring tool(for instance expression web or dreamweaver), and then, copying the created hatml into a View. Once you have done
this it is enough to substitute the html elements that you want to be dynanically generated with helpers. That is all!
This way a grephic designer can prepare a beatiful page for you (he is able to use html designers...but bot visual studio) and then you can isert into your MVC sites following the steps I outlined.
