Server Explorer drag & drop no longer working. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created some .dbml files a few weeks back and was able to drag tables from the server explorer onto the .dbml files just fine. I just added some new tables and went to add them by dragging and dropping again and the functionality is completely gone. The entire "drag and drop" is like it doesn't exist, mouse pointer doesn't change when you try to "grab" the table from the server explorer and nothing happens if you try and drag it over, the mouse pointer is still an arrow and there are no errors at all. I am using VS 2012 Premium and SQL Server 2010.

  • Hi Lloyd, thanks for the response. The exact same thing happened. I closed down VS, re-opened and same issue. Then I deleted and re-added the connection, still no dice. In desperation I rebooted my PC and it was back to normal and working again. I'm thinking Team Foundation Server had some kind of lock on those files (even though they were checked out) that wasn't cleared up.

  • If you try to create a new .dbml file with those tables what happens?
