Hi,

Seeing the attached image...

I'm migrating from vb to c#.

In vb in this dropdown on the left I am able to select a control and then the event on the right hand side and this creates the function in code for me.

Thsi doesn't seem to be an option in c#.

So it seems the only way to create say a button click function is the click the button in design view.

Is there a better way to work with c# than this?

In design view you can highlight a control, go to Properties and click the lightening bolt to see a available events. Double click an event to create the code block in code behind. For Things like GridViews, click the control in the upper right to expand the menu, choose Edit Templates to get to embedded controls in TemplateFields. then click the lightening bolt in Properties to see events.

OK yeah that works....

Bit long winded though compared to VB.

You can do it the same way in VB projects. At least that's the way it works in VS 2005.

I'm not saying you can't, I'm just saying there is a quicker way to do it in vb...

You just select the control on the left, the event on the right and creates code for you.

Saves having to go to the .aspx, changing to design view,clicking things and eventually ending up with the function....

There has to be a setting where you can turn that bar off an on because I've got it showing in both C# and VB projects.

You're right, the asp controls for C# projects are not listed as they are in VB projects. I never noticed because I never use that bar to create event code blocks.
