Visual studio designer event problem

    Hi there

    I have a small issue that I'm sure others have experienced - but haven't yet found a solution / workaround for this.

    When adding controls to Visual Studio in designer you normally get a event button (the yellow flash light) in the properties window.

    But when you nest a button inside a placeholder (for example) you cannot mark the button from the designer - only the placeholder! When trying to go into "split-view" on the designer you'll be able to mark the button in the bottom of the designer - but only properties and not the event button appers in the properties window!

    I know that you can go into codebehind and manually add the event but I thiink it is really tiresome to do so if I don't have to...

    I had a small hope that VS2010 the issue would be gone but sadly it isn't...

    Anyone ever found a solution for this one?

    Kind regards Thomas
