Default Chapter 5 pg 147 point 8 Possible error

This the code that is shown in the book is:

Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
'Set the Hour property to current hour
Me.Hour = Now.Hour

When I first clicked on this item the code was this:

Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles My.Load
'Set the Hour property to current hour
Me.Hour = Now.Hour

Code in book shows me.load
When I clicked on the item is showed my.Load. and put a blue line there so I new there was a problem.
Would this change between Visual Studio Versions, because I am using 2013 version?

Thank You

In VS 2012, it can be Me. or MyBase. It cannot be My. You should download VS 2012 Express. It is free and will help you throughout the book. Most items will still work in VS2013 but some will need adjustments.
