great videos. the last video has audio glitches and cuts out in the last few minutes.

the way to change the look and feel via the css is soooo much easier then component arts way. very refreshing. The way to add the client side code is awesome. the only question i have is does the java-script intelisence popup contain the elemts for the Dev Express items? I hope so, because that would be so much easier.

also, it would be great to right click on an item and be able to goto the help section for that control in the designer.

as always, an amzing job. will use these controls on my next project.

Thanks Pete,

I'll get that last one looked at for the audio glitches.

You might want to check out the new autoformats in v8.1 as well. I like the new "Red Wine" look myself but they're all very good.

Thanks.

Hi Pete,

We've fixed that last lesson and it should play fine now. The intellisense issue on the JS is because the intellisense searches for global variables and our controls use a different approach (a custom client object model).

Thanks.
