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?

For example, see page 80. 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?

Hi,

As I did write in the case posted before this one, did you try this:

I just had exactly the same problem.
I am using VS Studio 2005 Pro with SP1. For some extremely odd reason I had to navigate to TOOLS -> OPTIONS -> HTML -> MISCELLANEOUS and tick "Enable property grid in Source view".

Then it worked, maybe can help in your situation as well.

Regards
/Arctica

Thank you for your reply.

I saw your message. However, I was using Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition, and I could not find that option.

I too have this problem, and I couldn't find any such option on VWD, nor VS2005. I installed the vs2008 beta2 (free), and it seems to work by default. All the controls are the same, from VWD, but with a neat split view feature that allows you to view both source and design (amoung many other things). It's kinda lame having to install it, but its free and a lot better then VWD.

Ok I found out how to do this.

First go to TOOLS -> OPTIONS
then check "show all settings"
then within OPTIONS goto

TEXT EDITOR -> MISCELLANEOUS

and check "Enable property grid in Source view"
