Default Control properties in source view

I am reading through the Wrox book "Beginning ASP.NET 2.0." Several times it has asked me to click in a control's definition in the Source View and then change a property in the Properties pane. When I click there, my Properties pane is empty. If I switch to the Design View and click on a control, I can see the properties. How do I see the properties in the Source View?

I am on page 80 of the book I mentioned in my first message. Under step 5, it says to position my cursor anywhere in the Hyperlink's definition and then look at the Properties pane on the right. I assume I'm supposed to be in the Source View. When I click there and look at the Properties pane, it is empty. If I switch to the Design View and click on the Hyperlink, then all of the properties are listed. But I was led to believe by the example on page 80 that I should be able to see the properties in the Source View also. Am I not understanding this correctly?

I dont have the book but, I assume, you are using VWD and not Visual Studio 2005. I can reproduce your problem only in Visual Web Developer, in Visual Studio 2005 the properties for a given control show up in the properties pane regardless of which view I am in.

You might want to go to the forum dedicated to that book and post a message for the author and ask them to clarifiy whether that that is a setting you somehow need to enable or if it is a feature available only in VS.

Sorry I can not be of more help.

This books forum can be found here btw:
