Annoying Windows Form designer issues VS 2005

Post by Cameron Ec » Fri, 20 Apr 2007 01:45:36


I am creating an Windows application for the first time using VS 2005 and I
am having problems with the designer. It seems to want to create the
default event for a control every time I move it around on the form or click
on it to select it. Is there any way to turn this off? I even tried set my
mouse setting for the double click to see it that would help.

The other issue I have is with creating icons. The Colors window dissapears
after using the eyedropper tool (no, it is not auto hidden). I have to go
to another file tab and then back to the icon before the window will appear
again.

Thanks in advance for any help.
 
 
 

1. New VS.2005 File format for windows-forms ( spliited into form1.designer.vb and form1.vb )

2. VS 2005 Beta 2 - Forms designer re-lays out the form on every buil

I just installed VS 2005 Beta 2 and imported a project I was working on.
Basically, I am just in the stage where I'm laying out the form and the
controls, etc. and designing the over-all look. This is not a big project...
basically a form with some tabs and each tab contains several sub-controls
(panels, splitters, more smaller tab controls, etc.). Lots of anchoring and
docking, etc., the usual drill.

So, every time I rebuild my project (debug or just build), if the forms
designer is open, Visual Studio appears to reload the form in the designer.
It flickers and flashes a lot and seems to repaint the form in the design
view. If I was debugging, this causes an error in Visual Studio as you are
not allowed to modify the designer while debugging. The other thing that
happens during this re-laying out stage is that the size of the overall main
form changes from 1024-768 to 1024-748... shrinks in height by 20 pixels...
this is very aggravating!

Anyone know what is going on?

Thanks,

-John
