Ebook Paragraph

in the section marked eBook, the Author states "...You can use the eBook to cut and paste code as you work through the excercises" but this is not possible when reading using Adobe Reader - the DRM restrictions prevent this : When looking in Document Properties, Content Copying or Extraction is Not allowed, therefore the code samples cannot be copied out. I have tried to copy code content from this book, but the copy option is disabled. Suggest re writing this section to remove reference to the ability to copy / paste from the eBook.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Huh. That's kinda lame. I guess eliminate that sentence-I didn't know the DRM was configured that way.

Answer D

VB version of code does not match C# version of code. In th C# version of code, the instance of the Window1 class (aWindow) has it's show method called. aWindow.Show(); In the VB.NET version of the code, the Class has it's show method called. Window1.Show I believe this should be re-written to be aWindow.Show()

Note from the Author or Editor:
Either actually works in VB.NET but lets change it for consistency sake.

the Groups and Employees ListBoxes

On Page 228, the Groups and Employees ListBoxes do not bind to the data object when you select the master item. I had to add the following to the 2nd and 3rd StackPanels (containing groups and employees respectively): DataContext="{Binding Path=CurrentItem}" e.g. <StackPanel DataContext="{Binding Path=CurrentItem}"> which appeared to fix it. Is this correct?

Yes. Fix as above.

Answer to question 3

In answer for alternative A the order between NavigationProgress and Navigated are wrong. NavigationProgress occurs before Navigated. In answer for alternative B which is marked as the correct answer, this is only true if you change the order as described in the confirmed errata for page 39. If you do the switch then alternative B and C are equal and one can be deleted. In answer for alternative C which is marked as incorrect should be marked as correct and the explanation from alternative B should be used.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct. Fix as above.
