Creating a new web page using WebMatrix IDE

Creating a Web Page

In WebMatrix, select the Files workspace. This workspace lets you work with files and folders. The left pane shows the file structure of your site.

In the ribbon, click New and then click New File. WebMatrix displays a list of file types.

Select CSHTML, and in the Name box, type default.cshtml. A CSHTML page is a special type of page in WebMatrix that can contain the usual contents of a web page, such as HTML and JavaScript code, and that can also contain code for programming web pages. (You'll learn more about CSHTML files later.)

Click OK. WebMatrix creates the page and opens it in the editor. As you can see, this is ordinary HTML markup.

Add title description and content of the page

In the Quick Access Toolbar, click Save. In the ribbon, click Run.

Note: Before you click Run, make sure that the web page you want to run is selected in the navigation pane of the Files workspace. WebMatrix runs the page that's selected, even if you're currently editing a different page. If no page is selected, WebMatrix tries to run the default page for the site (default.cshtml), and if there is no default page, the browser displays an error.

WebMatrix starts web server (IIS Express) that you can use to test pages on your computer.
The page is displayed in your default browser.
