RE: WinformBasics: Getting IDE Help

He he!
C# and I set up the IDE according to your settings but I probably missed
something.
I did this last night and I actually fell asleep at the keys...
So that's probably why something isn't right.
I'll have a look at your tutorial again.

Ah, the Error List Popup box! That is perhaps the only thing in the IDE that

is a real pain from time to time. If you have set up your IDE according to 
my settings it should not pop up until you  bring up the Error List manually

or perhaps run the project. OK, so first, did you set up your IDE to my 
specs? If you need a copy of the tutorial I will send it to you. Second, 
which language are you working in? Also, I think there was something in the 
scripts to handle that popup error list. I usually bring it up manually and 
set focus to it then under the Windows menu set it to be a tabbed document. 
Then I close it with ctrl+f4 to get it out of the way and that usually 
works. NBut, the big help comds in having certain settings set in the IDE 
Options. So, Which Language, VB or C# and did you set up the IDE to my 
Specs?Otherwise that window will give you gray hair real soon!
