Missing Step There is a step missing from page 467. Insert the following as a new Step 5: "5 Select the textbox control on the form by clicking on it. The Properties window should now display the events associated with the textbox control. If not, click on the Events button to display them. Click the Enter event, and then click on the drop down arrow. Select itemSelected from the drop down list and hit enter. You will be returned to the itemSelected method in the Code View window but you don't have to type anything. After the form and its controls are created the textbox control receives the focus which generates the Enter event. By pointing that event to the itemSelected method we ensure the textbox displays a ProductID when the program starts." The remaining step numbers should be incremented by one.
