Default Can't find properties listed...

Chapter 2 Exercises on Page 318 of Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition says on step 2 to Select the NormalImage property. Step 3 says to select the HoverImage and PressedImage properties for the DVD collection application. Although I can locate the BackgroundImage, these other 3 properties are nowhere to be found. I used the disk in the back of the book for my original load of the software. Can you help?

Hi there,

Unfortunately Microsoft changed the Movie Collection Starter Kit at the very last minute and these properties are no longer included in the project's class definitions. This means the entire exercise is no longer valid.

Please accept my apologies; I will be working on an alternative exercise for the book errata.
