Enable events in the control property window in code view
I'm not sure why the property window acts differently when in design, split, or code views. The control is the same, and the properties of the control are the same. I would like to be able to quickly generate a method/function stub in code behind and add the appropriate attribute to the control while in code view just as much as I would while in design or split view. In most cases, design and split views are worthless to me because they are so inaccurate, especially inside a usercontrol where the css styles aren't typically applied.
VS2012 lets you create event handlers in your code-behind directly from the source view of your markup file.
