Some operations have a long duration, and in that case it can be a good idea to use an asynchronous page.

My suggestion is to make it possible to make a page asynchronous when adding pages with the Add View (with presenter) recipe. It could be done by adding a checkbox under the Show documentation after recipe completes, where you could check if the page should be asynchronous.

To make the page asynchronous add page directive Async="true" in view.aspx.

In View.aspx.cs add

AddOnPreRenderCompleteAsync (

                new BeginEventHandler (BeginAsyncOperation),

                new EndEventHandler (EndAsyncOperation));

in the Page_Load method and these two methods:

IAsyncResult BeginAsyncOperation (object sender, EventArgs e, AsyncCallback cb, object state)


    // TODO: Begin async operation and return IAsyncResult

    return null;



void EndAsyncOperation (IAsyncResult ar)


    // TODO: Get results of async operation

Hi Morten,


You might want to add your suggestion to the WCSF Issue Tracker. In this way, you can share this feature with the community, so they can vote to add it in future releases of WCSF.
