Default Manual Errata, Chapter 11

Not sure if the forums is the place to post this but I figured it couldn't hurt...

In the Try It Out on page 396-398 of the chapter on jQuery, I believe the instructions are out of order. Step 7 (p. 398) should probably be included in step 9, as I'm pretty sure it's referring to the .css file(s) and not the user control file. Unless I'm reading it wrong..

Cheers

Hi there,

The text is fine as it is. Take a look at page 386, step 2. There the .Watermark class is temporarily added to the User Control. It's - properly - moved to the CSS files in the steps you mentioned.

Cheers,

Imar

Ah, thanks for the reply. I remember I didn't have the <style> block that you mentioned in step 2 (I must have missed that somewhere else). I tried to add one, both through markup and through design view by using New Style.. and I received an error stating there were no editable regions (or something to that effect) so it wouldn't let me add a <style> section to the control.

I played with it for a bit, couldn't figure out where I went wrong and just decided to add it to the style sheets in the Themes.

Which of course is why it wasn't in the control to delete for me. My mistake, thanks..

Very much enjoying the book btw :)

Good to hear you like the book so much.

Yes, using the New Style dialog doesn't work and you get the error you mentioned (Failed to create a <style> tag because there are no editable regions in the <head> tag). However, you should be able to work around it by typing in the code in Markup view directly.

Cheers,

Imar
