Default Chapter 12 - Last try it out exercise

Step 12 asks to click edit Databindings on Smart Tasks panel of DropDownlist and click SelectedVale in the list on the left and choose GenreId from the bound to drop-down list on the right as in Figure 12-22.
However, the Data bindings radio button is grayed out for me, so I can not perform this function ? Help ?

Someone else reported this a few days ago as well. I couldn't find out what the problem was, and suspected it might be a bug in VS.

If you want, can you send me a copy of the complete web site and database? Then I can try it out here and see if I can find anything. To find out my e-mail address, use the Contact page on my web site (see link in signature) and I'll reply to that message.

In the meantime, you can work around the issue by manually typing in the code in Markup View.

Cheers,

Imar

Thanks. That is precisely what I did - typed in the coding and it works fine. One other note. I was getting an error on the AddEditReview.aspx page saying that datatype date was not supported by my version of SQL.
I did some research on the web and found that I need to change the code:
<asp:Parameter DbType="Date" Name="UpdateDateTime" />

to
<asp:Parameter DbType="DateTime" Name="UpdateDateTime" />

then it worked fine.

Yes, correct. This is also listed in the errata section: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...Cd-ERRATA.html together with some background. It's due to a change in service pack 1 for VS.

Do you still want me to look at your site and see if I can find anything?

No, I am fine now. Thank you so much. Your help and support is unprecedented. I am learning so much from this book although some of the subject matter is a bit difficult for me to comprehend being an old mainframe programmer. I will go back over those sections again and hope to better understand the concepts.
