[URL="http://www.experts-exchange.com/M_277489.html"] In an ASP.Net application, if I modify the .vb code file does the entire program need to be recompiled to work?
What if I change the .aspx file?
If you modify anything there needs to be a recompilation. Depending on your deployment model, modifying the .vb file could require a manual recompile using MSBuild. Modifying a .ASPX file will automatically trigger a recompile of that page due to the way .ASPX pages are built.
Changes in code behind files will need to be recompiled but changes in your aspx files will reflect immediately without recompile.
