Hidden links can sometimes cause your map to behave in unexpected ways!

If this occurs, always check out the compiler-generated links to make sure that he (the compiler) hasn´t misinterpreted your intentions.

To see them:

  • go to Solution Explorer, right-click over the map and select “Validate Map” option
  • Then go to the Main menu and select “View → Error List” option. This opens the Error Window. Select the “Message” tab.

You will see the line “Double-click here to show/hide compiler links”. Double-click in the line and the hidden links generated by the compiler will appear in the map represented in orange dashed lines.
