Default Possible Errata in Chapter 13?

In Chapter 13, page 443, the "try it out" wants you to drag a DetailsView from the Toolbox to below the SqlDataSource. When you drop it in design view, according to the book, the necessary mark-up is added (bound fields, etc.) when you use the smart panel to connect it to the SqlDataSource. That was not my experience. It took me a few tries but I finally discovered that you must click "Refresh Schema" after the data source is connected before the proper fields will be present. Was this everyone's experience or just mine? This may need to be included as a step so as to not to confuse people. This wasn't listed in errata either, and am not sure it if it is, or just in my specific case.

Hi there,

It's actually a bug in Visual Studio that surfaces every now and then. It works as explained in the book for me on a few different machines. I've seen it happen in other places as well, and where appropriate I added a hint about clicking the Refresh link (page 467 and 468 for example.). Guess you just found another location where it doesn't always work as it's supposed to.
