Visual Studio Properties in Properties Window

I am using Visual Studio 2010.  For some reason in source view my properties window does not show the styles anymore (drop down list styles such as border color, style, width, etc.).  I have tried going to tools > properties > text editor > Miscelaneous > there is not option to enable properties grid in source view.

I had this before and I have obviously clicked some options in visual studio to hide some of these properties from the properties window.

Can some help?

Thanks

Rick

well, if that's the tool's limitation and provide what we want (there could be a reason behind or this feature is not available), then we got to adapt what currently we have in our development.

the option just seems not available at this moment...

isn't these features (border color, style, width, etc) only available and activated in design view?

I am pretty sure I have accessed these in Source view in the past.

You can reset the layout if you did not extensively customize it
Windows > Reset Windows Layout

Open in new window

This does not change anything.  I know that I have accessed these features from source view in the past.  I predominantly use this view for my page design work.

I  know that I have used these properties in source view before.  I virtually never use the design view during page and control design, and I have often edited these properties.
