CD-ROM: "ImageIndex" should be "ImageList"

One of the Readiness Review assessment questions contains an answer with an incorrect C# component.

The question reads:
"Which of the following code examples correctly associates an image from an ImageList component with a Button control? Assume an ImageList component named ImageList1 and a Button control named Button1. (Choose all that apply.)"

In the correct answer change:

Button1.ImageList = ImageList1
Button1.ImageKey = "myImage"

// C#
button1.ImageIndex = imageList1;
button1.ImageKey = "myImage";


To:

Button1.ImageList = ImageList1
Button1.ImageKey = "myImage"

// C#
button1.ImageList = imageList1;
button1.ImageKey = "myImage";



CD-ROM: "composite" should be "custom"

In the Readiness Review assessment, Question 27 (526P_6.1.7_01) uses an incorrect control.

Change:
"You are creating a composite control. You want to provide a transparent background color. How can you do this? (Choose all that apply.)"

To:
"You are creating a custom control. You want to provide a transparent background color. How can you do this? (Choose all that apply.)"

CD-ROM: == should be !=

One of the Readiness Review assessment questions contains an answer with an incorrect C# component.

The question reads:
"You created a Windows Forms application. The application performs long-running operations, and you create a BackgroundWorker object named BackgroundWorker1. You create a method named BackgroundWorker1_RunWorkerCompleted to respond when the process has completed successfully, ended in an error, or been cancelled by the user. The method declaration is:"

In the third answer, the first line contains a "==" symbol rather than a "!=" symbol.

Change:

if (e.Error == null)


To:

if (e.Error != null)


Page 19: Property Grid used in place of Toolbox

"Drag a Button from the Property Grid to the upper left-hand corner of the form."

It should read:

"Drag a Button from the Toolbox to the upper left-hand corner of the form."

Pages 22 and 23: Incorrect code in C# answers

On pages 22 and 23, the aPath line in the C# section of every answer to question 2 reads:

Page 33: Column numbering stated to begin at 1 rather than 0

On page 33, the first two sentences of the fourth paragraph read:

"Columns in a TableLayoutPanel are numbers starting at 1, while rows start at 0. Thus, the example shown above adds aButton to the cell in column 3 at row 3, which is actually the 3rd column and the 4th row the user sees."

It should read:

"Columns and rows in a TableLayoutPanel are numbers starting at 0. Thus, the example shown above adds aButton to the cell in column 3 at row 3, which is actually the 4th column and the 4th row the user sees."

Page 38: the words False and True should be reversed

On page 38, the last two sentences in the second to the last paragraph read:

"Note that you cannot set both of these controls to False. For example, if you set Panel1Collapsed to False when the Panel2Collapsed is already set to False, Panel2Collapsed will be set to True."

They should read:

"Note that you cannot set both of these controls to True. For example, if you set Panel1Collapsed to True when the Panel2Collapsed is already set to True, Panel2Collapsed will be set to False."

Page 43: True missing from code sample
