Apologies if this is not the correct forum.
I have a persistent problem with visual studio which is driving me to distraction, which is when I am editing ASCX, ASPX text markup (i.e. not using the designer), visual studio (apparently) randomly switches to the error list. Because the error list is
given focus, I often lose half of the line that I am typing. I am guessing that the problem is related to Visual studio doing some compilation "behind the scenes" while I am editing so that it can use intellisense/show errors. But even though I have Visual
not show me the error list when I compile my solution, it keeps popping up!
Can anyone help? To be honest I would quite happily do away with the error list (I don't find it very useful and it is typically too slow for me to bother with) so if anyone know of a way of just killling it I would be happy with that.
Thanks in advance

VS 2005 validates the Markup according to the XHTML 1.0 Transitional standard by default. You have 2 types of solutions for your problem
1. Change the standard for MARKUP in the HTML Source Editing to old standards like IE 3.0. ( its a toolbar option in the VS2005. to see this right clik on the toolbar and check HTML Source Editing)
2. Disable HTML validation. To do this go to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> HTML -> Validation -> here uncheck
Show Errors check box.
Hope this helps.

This is not really a solution. Disabling validation via the options disables one of the reasons I use Visual Studio to edit code. In addition, your #2 solution does
NOT work. What is really needed is a way to turn off that highly annoying error window from popping up. Many web developers prefer to work in source view, but the error window is like this insane energizer bunny that just wont die. Please kill it.
To summarize: I want validation, but I would rather I have control over when it validates. Either manually, or at set events like file save(that I also control).
BTW - did I mention I HATE the error window popping up? [:@]
