just find out today, another limitation of the visual studio 2008 asp.net.
beside it somehow not 100% compatible with early days oracle query (I use oracle 8.1.7 database with asp.net 2.0/vs2008, ans some queries just cannot work without “simplifying” it).
anyway, back to the tittle, it seems that every time i make it over 127 columns when i save it, the visual studio crashed (actually i can save it at 127 columns, but when i add 13 more bound fields, it crashed). the strange thing is that it is ok if you use automatic generating field option, but not ok if you manually add the field yourself…
but don’t worry there is a work around to that, but this is with a consequence,
you cannot again enter the “design” mode of your aspx page once you add the bound field columns manually through “source” mode because it will crash your visual studio and be mindful, that the visual studio will use 100% source of one of your processor (the visual studio standard version i use, seems only to use one processor, even though you configure the affiliation to all your processors)
