electrical outlets & switches
 
I am replacing a switch that controlls half of a walloutlet & also changing the walloutlet. I did it , Now the switch does not work & the wallout works with out the switch being on.. I am using a single pole switch (lighted) it does not light. The wall switxh has a black & red wire. The wall outlet has a white, black & red wire. I have them all connected. What have I done wrong?

You have to break the tab between the terminals on the hot (ONLY) side of the outlet.
