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?
