Default Missing Styles Folder Chapter 3

Chapter 3 page 95 in the TRY IT OUT in step #4:

"..choose Styles/Styles.css."

This was also submitted as errata.
At this point (see above) in the book I found no previous reference where a Styles folder was created and feel this may (if I am correct) cause confusion when viewing Default.aspx in the browser as Styles.css is not referenced to style the page properly.

Of course one way around this is to view the provided source code.

I figured it out, by creating a Styles folder, placing Styles.css in that folder and using ../Styles/Styles.css in the head of Default.aspx

Hi there,

Looks like you missed that in Chapter 2. On page 46 you find a Try It Out Exercise with the following steps:

1. Right-click the Planet Wrox site in the Solution Explorer and choose Add => New Folder.
2. Type Styles as the new folder name and press Enter.
3. Create another folder, called Controls. These two folders are used in the remainder of this book.
4. Drag the Styles.css file that you added earlier and drop it into the Styles folder.

Hope this helps,

Imar

Thanks Imar!
Now SO embarrassed!
I think it's the smallest TRY IT OUT in the book, just file management related and probably the easiest in the entire book!

The only saving face I have is I figured it out...
LOL!

Maybe that was why it was so tempting to skip it ;-)

And yes: being able to figure it out yourself is probably the most important part of this!

Cheers,

Imar
