Exclamation chapter 18 ASP.NET anomaly.

Hello. I recently Borrowed this particular book from the library. (ISBN 978-0-470-50222-8 to make sure it's the right book.) I'm not a programmer, however, I do have a mild interest in the subject, often scratching the surface of different languages but never going too far past the 'hello world' examples.

Anyway, I decided to have a go at the simple web page on page 558. However, things didn't go as smoothly as I would have liked. The problems started at paragraph 7. If anyone here can help solve these problems i'd be happy.

Within this paragraph look for the following sentences:

1.'Create an event handler for the HTML input (Button) and add a title to the page.' Ok, I think I did this.

2.'On the tag navigator, click Source to change to HTML view.' I couldn't find a HTML view button although the code above was html... I'm not sure what's going on here.

No html view:

3.'In the client Object & Events combo box, choose btnClient.' Where the heck is the 'client Object & Events combo box'? I can't even find it on the internet never mind in this program!

4.'Next, select onclick in the event combo box'... What and where the heck is the 'event combo box'? I'm not sure it even exists!

The downloaded help dosen't work, even though the help page shows locally installed files.

Installing help:

Grayed out!:

Someone else is having a similar problem here with s2005:

Who writes this stuff!
