Events icon in Visual Studio 2008

P: 132
Hi there.

When I open up the Properties window in Visual Studio, the Events (lightening bolt) icon is not showing for any control type that I click on in a project.

Does anybody know if there is a setting for this please as I can't use the mouse to invoke a template method body in the code, such as when you double-click SelectedIndexChange?

Yes I know it is okay to code this by hand in the aspx and cs pages but this shortcut does come in handy.

Thank you.

Do you actually have the Form open and the control selected in the designer? It doesn't show if you just select it in a palette. You have to have it selected in the designer.

Hi there.

Yes I have selected the control and would normally see the additional icon appear in the Properties window but for some reason it isn't happening. If I open up another project in another occurrence of VS2208, and on the same machine, then that works fine so I can't see why there should be such different behaviour.

Thank you.

That is actually really strange.
If the project is small enough, I recomend creating a new project and copy/pasting things in.
That frequently corrects wierd issues with visual studio.
