Default Controls New Class Library project page 60???

I don't take drugs... well I think but...

Page 60, I have to create a server control. First, they tell me to add a new project call Controls. Ok, Then they tell me to set a default namespace, ok and now thel tell me to set the output file to Wrox.ThePhile.Web.Controls.

Now if a look the hierarchy ( maybe there's explanations further in the book) I see that the controls project it's a VB class in a controls folder, not a vb class project so... If it's an errata, do you know if I can find it somewhere on the net. If not, it's seem to me that book have a lot of errors.

Tks

I don't have the VB book, but I can tell you that the code download has more functionality than the book covers. Have you looked at the VB code download?

I noticed this contradiction, too...there is no Controls project, the Navigator.vb class is in the folder 'Controls/Server' within the project ThePhile.
It doesn't seem to be a problem, though. The navigator.vb class/code is there and seems to work fine.

Ok I downloaded the code but.... I don't like to do that. I prefer read and understand each step but with this book, it's almost impossible. I have to refer every moment to the code download
grrrrrrrrr

Yes I am also experiencing the same error, with the C# version of the book.

There is a controls folder and no separate controls library project.

Fustrating book.

You guys need to understand the way this book was designed. This book is NOT intended to be a step-by-step set of plans to build a content-driven website. Instead, the book is about the DESIGN of a website. They include some sample code segments in the book so they can explain how it works. They also have some limited step-by-step instructions, but it's not supposed to have all of the code in the book, and it's not supposed to have all of the detailed instructions.

They give you all of the code in the code download. The code download has also been updated since the book was published, so it doesn't match the book in every detail.

If the book were to discuss every line of code, then it would be too big to be useful!

This book is for people who are already familier with C# (or VB.NET) and ASP.NET. Look on the back cover where it says "What you need to know". I assume the VB book also has this section - I only have the C# book.

With that in mind, they are not trying to teach you every detail, but rather they want to teach design concepts. They put code samples in the book to illustrate the points they are trying to make. It's a book for developers with a mid-level of experience who want to understand how to put together the pieces they already know into a full-featured website.
