Add ViewStart to view folder when adding a new MVC Area
When adding a new MVC Area to an MVC Internet Application, add a ViewStart file to the area's View folder.
At this time, I have to manually add the ViewStart to enable my area view to render the layout file. It would be helpful if this could be implemented.
You do not have to manually add the ViewStart file - when adding a View to an Area, just enter the path to the _layout file in the master page/layout text box. A link to the _layout file is then entered at the top of the View file. This then allows the default ViewStart to be used.
