How To Disable Updating of Page Types When Using Page Type Builder

I’ve mentioned it before, but as I keep getting questions on the subject I thought I’d dedicate a post to it. It being the question whether it’s possible to tell Page Type Builder not to update page types when the application starts. And the answer is yes :)

Doing so is also one possible solution to another question I’ve gotten a few times: do I have any suggestion on how to handle the problem that properties that one developer have removed is recreated when another developer, that doesn’t have the latest version but who uses the same database, browse the site after compilation.

Disabling updating of page types is done by adding a new configuration section called pageTypeBuilder to web.config and setting it’s disablePageTypeUpdation attribute to true, like this:

<configuration>
  <configSections>
    <section name="pageTypeBuilder"
type="PageTypeBuilder.Configuration.PageTypeBuilderConfiguration,
PageTypeBuilder"/>
  </configSections>
    <pageTypeBuilder disablePageTypeUpdation="true" />
</configuration>
