Here are some known issues with AspNetEdit:

     1. To get some items in the toolbox, you'll need to add
        $PREFIX/lib/mono/2.0/System.Web.dll using the button on the
        toolbox toolbar.
     2. On Firefox 1.5+ the control selection handles disappear after a
        few seconds. Mozilla 1.7 works fine.
     3. The code from the design view can't be saved with older releases
        of Mono. This is caused by a bug in Mono's 2.0 classlib (or
        runtime) that has been fixed in SVN HEAD as of 11 Sept 2006.
     4. The XUL/JS addin needs to be registered with your global
        Mozilla/Firefox profile. This happens when you install
        MonoDevelop, but if don't want to install the rest of
        Monodevelop (e.g. if you use 'make run') then you can just 'sudo
        make install' in the Extras/AspNetEdit/chrome directory.

I did 1. and I don't get any items in the toolbox.

What does 2. mean? I don't have any controls to put anywhere.

I'm running Mono, so 3. seems irrelevent.

I installed MonoDevelop from the RPM (I'm using the SuSE 10.0 RPMs), so
4. should have have been done.

How? I'm using Mandriva Linux 2006 with KDE 3.5.4 (with GNOME 2.1.2), my
version of Mozilla is 1.7.11. My default browser is Firefox

Thanks, I've now got the latest version of MonoDevelop.XmlEditor

I still don't have any option for a Designer view, I can only see the
aspx as html, but the code behind now displays correctly in the solution
treeview. The test web application does compile and run but MonoDevelop
