Default Pg 16 Green Arrow?

I am just starting out learning ASP.NET 2.0 with wrox book Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 with C#.

Page 16 midway through the page:

"Click the Run icon (green Arrow) on the Toolbar.

I do NOT see a green arrow and pushing F5 does nothing. Unless you mean to "Run in Browser" which is like a page with the earth on it and a magnifying glass over it. NOT a green arrow.

Am I even running the right application?

Here is a screenshot for further clarity:

The icon that you are looking for is grayed out in the screen shot that was attached.
It is an arrow pointing right and is positioned to the left of the magnifying glass that you describe in your post. If you mouse over it you will see "Start Debugging"
The reason that it is gray out is that there is a "Master Page Error". See the bottom of your screen shot.
You will have to resolve that problem before you can "Start Debugging" with the green arrow.

Thanks for your help.

Even in pages that don't have this error -I still do not see a green arrow button.

Here is site.master.aspx

I too am new to this stuff so this may be the blind leading the blind.

Since all of the pages work together I suspect that an error on one of them prevents you launching the debugger (Green Arrow) from any part (page) of the web site.

The first screenshot that you posted showed a link to 'Correct the problem in Code View".

Hi there,

I think the problem is caused by the fact you don't have a site open, but only a single file. Look at the screen shot you posted: the Solution Explorer is empty. Therefore, VWD doesn't understand the web structure and doesn't let you run / debug it.

Try this instead:

1. Choose File | Open Web Site or File | Open |Web Site

2. Browse to the location where your web site is located (something like C:\BegASPNET)

3. Click OK / Open to open the site in VWD

The Solution Explorer nows shows the entire site and its structure. From there, you should be able to open the web forms and other files, and ht F5 to start debugging the application.

Hope this helps,

Imar
