Default Lesson 3 - Questions

P.43
Step-by-Step
(1) 1 - What does "Use the MenuStrip hint form the "Hints" section of thsi lesson to create the empty file menu." mean?
Can I simply drag-and-drop the MenuStrip from a toolbox? But just use the guidelines in the "Hints" section?

(2) 4 - Using the "Hints," where can I find the dropdown arrow to set it to StatusLabel? I think I kind of found the drop-down menu but I can't locate the "StatusLabel." I think I might have found it.

For 2nd steps

2. Set LinkLabel to same size as Text boxes. Do I simply drag and drop to adjust this?
3. Enter enough items in the ListBox.... What items am I entering?

The second hint in the Hints section on page 43 tells how to set up the File menu.

This is the third hint. If you put a StatusStrip on the form and click on it, it will display a little dropdown arrow next to something that looks a bit like a document. That's the thing to click.

Normally that's what you do. If you want to precisely size an item without dragging, you can set its Size property in the Properties window. You can get the TextBoxes' size by looking at their Size property in the Properties window.

For this example it doesn't matter what you enter as long ass you enter a bunch of items so you can see the ListBox display its scroll bars. List your favorite foods, animals, sports teams, etc.

I think once you get the hang of the Try Its, this should get easier, but if you get stuck you can always look at the screencast on the DVD to watch me do it. Sometimes I may go over some thing pretty quickly but you should be able to pick out details such as these.
