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?
