Default Chapter 15 pg. 533

I believe there is an error on page 533 and wanted to send it through the errata link from this books page on the Wrox website, but I always get sent to a form for asking questions. Not knowing where to go, I decided to post this here:

In the table on pg.533 you list the ASP.Net style RowStyle as the necessary style needed to the change the Header of the GridView. I believe that this should be HeaderStyle.

Please correct me if I am mistaken.

Thanks.

Yep, you're correct.

Can you send that to Wrox using the Question form so it can be added to the errata section for the book? For some unknown reason, Wrox treats questions and errata as the same thing, so you won't find a separate errata form. Confusing, I know, but that's how it is at the moment ;-(

Cheers,

Imar

Thanks for the quick reply Imar.

I ended up having to do it twice, because I didn't realize that the Wrox Press Category is the one needed to send Erratas.

I have to say though that the process was not very user friendly at all.

1. I had to create an account to be able to send in errata. This included asking for my phone number and address information, which I believe is unnecessary and thus I entered fictitious data. The system should allow for anonymous requests or at least just ask for a e-mail, password, and name only.

2. It was difficult for me to figure out the required steps necessary to send an errata. I didn't know that I needed to pick the "Wrox Press" category to get the subcategories for errata. At least it was difficult for me.

From a usability standpoint this Errata process was very bad. I understand that there isn't anything you can do, but I just wanted to vent some of my frustration. At least some more instructions would have been nice.

Anyway, I am enjoying your book very much and am also an avid reader of your blog. Keep up the great work.

Thanks.

I completely agree!

There's one thing I can do and that's notify the right people at Wrox, which I just did.... ;-)
