A simple one for you who knows, missing files when open a project


  • Hi!

    Im rather new to developing, but I have started a project in VS 2015 (update 3), C++, universal. When closing project I have tried to build project, build solution, save it. But each time I´m open the project, only mainpage.xaml opens. Right click mainpage and choose BLEND, still only mainpage opens. How can I get the whole project (all XAML files) to open for editing in blend. What am I doing wrong? I can open each XAMl file, one at a time and then I get all the files up for editing

    Thank you for all assistance

  • Hi Bruno,

    >>But each time I´m open the project, only mainpage.xaml opens

    VS will open the files that opened before it was closed. Such as that before VS closed, A.xaml, B.xaml and C.xaml are opened in VS, and when we launched the VS next time, the A.xaml, B.xaml and C.xaml will be opened by default.

    >>How can I get the whole project (all XAML files) to open for editing in blend.

    If you want to get all xaml files to open after VS launched, I think we need to open the all xaml files first before VS closed.

    In addition, if we want to open all xaml files at the same time, you could press the “Ctrl” in keyboard and click the mouse. Just like the following screenshot, then press “Enter” in keyboard, and all xaml will be opened in VS.

    If I misunderstand your issue, please feel free to let me know.
