How do I open the CSS Style Builder?

I have VS.NET 2003 and am following a book tutorial. It is trying to teach me about CSS, and I have now got to the point where I have created a new CSS file as part of a project, and want to edit it.

In the book there are screenshots of a CSS "Style Builder". When I click to open the CSS on my machine, it just opens like an HTML source file, and I see the text below. There is no indication in the book why this might have happened.

body
{
}

How do I edit this file with the Style builder?

1. Open a .css file ( create new or edit one )
2. in the menu bar of the VS.NET 2003 is added new menu item called Styles
3. click on Build Style... sub menu

Hi,

When you open the css file in the menu of VS .NET 2003 a menu Styles is created
go there and click on Build Style... sub menu - and here it is the Style Builder

But then there will be a small window opening as a like property window called "CSS Outline". Are you able to see it?

And when you just click your rightbutton (mouse) under that body { "this place" } you can see whole list of menu which will allow you to modify , add new styles.


Hope you got it right.

Cheers!

Hi mmarinov.

Thanks for the reply. You'll need to talk me through it a little slower than that.

"When you open the css file in the menu of VS .NET 2003"

Which menu? Are you talking about something other than double-clicking on the css file in the code explorer?

sachiek,  I don't see any "CSS outline", although I suspect you may be a few steps further on.

All I have open is a ASP.NET project with a few aspx files, and two .css files added to the project so that you can see them in the code explorer.

Thank you mmarinov. I just needed a little more punctuation than there was in your first reply. :)
