I'm new to sharepoint. I managed to create a visual web part in VS 2012. But I don't know how to deploy it properly.

I only added a button control to the webpart page. After that I used F5 to deploy it. I selected "Deploy as farm solution" option while creating the project.

How can I view the output of my project in SharePoint 2013? How can I debug it? Is there any configurations to be made for deploying?

Thanks, Anand

To deploy and see your webpart in the sharepoint site, pls follow the instruction given in the following link.


Here is the steps to debug a web part in SharePoint :

Step 1: open the project and set the appropriate breakpoints.

Step 2: Create a Web Part Page on the default SharePoint site.

Step 3: Add the Web Part to the page.

Step 4:

• Attach the debugger to the W3wp process.

• On the Debug menu in Visual Studio .NET,click Processes.

• Verify that the Show system processes check box is selected.

• Verify that the Show processes in all sessions check box is selected.

• Under Available Processes, click W3wp.exe in the Process list, and then click Attach.

• Under Choose the program types that you want to debug, select Common Language Runtime, and then click OK, Then Close

Hope this helps you,
