Default Adding code question

Hi all,

I'm working through the book and am up to P190 (mid-way through the text editor app). Going well but one question.

The text says that a shortcut to opening the code editor is to right click on the form and select "View Code". This is fine, but I get a blank page code editor (without any of the class declaration stuff at the top). If I the section beginning
Public Property StatusText() as String....
to this page, I get an error when I run the project about not being in a namespace.

However, I can also get the code editor up by double clicking on one of the form controls. This brings up the editor but it has a few dozen lines of stuff in it that I'm not sure should be there or not. It starts off:

<Global.Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.DesignerGenerated()> _
Partial Class TextEditor
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCode()> _

Anyone know what both scenarios mean (blank code editor from right click view code, and full code editor with partial class from double clicking a form control)?

Thanks v much in advance.

Are you using Visual Basic 2005? Have you customized the view in Solution Explorer to show all files? When you right click on the form and choose View Source for a blank form, all you should see is the class declaration. If none of this helps, reinstall VS.
