    I have an asp.net page in design view. I right click the gridView I have on
    the page and then go to properties. For some strange reason, I see the pages
    file properties instead of the GridView properties. Any way to fix this
    problem. I can't get to any page/control properties this way. Help is really
    needed fast.

    can't you select the control from the dropdown located at the top of
    the property window?

    Sorry, I can't. The only thing available for example is "Members.aspx, file
    properties". Nothing else is in the combo box even if I right click a
    control on the page.

    2008 seems a little buggy or sensitive to me also on this...you will see a little tab with asp:control#itsname ... click that tab so the control is sure to grab focus, then properties...

    hope this helps.
