Tip #104: Did you know … How to view text for the ‘hint’ buttons on the Publish Web Dialog?
After the Beta 2 release of Visual Studio 2010, the Publish Web Dialog was modified to include two information buttons associated with the Service URL and Site/application text boxes. (See Figure 1)
There are two keys to remember when trying to view the ‘help’ text associated with these buttons:
- Hover – don’t click
In order to reveal the valuable information that these help icons can unlock, simply move your mouse to hover over them and then be patient for a second (i.e. quite moving your mouse around and don’t click them). Presto, the help text will then appear. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3)
Hope this helps in your publishing endeavors.
