Why the Form Does Not show?

    Question

  • While running Visual Basic 2008, the Solution Explorer, does not allow to see the form to allow additional entereing of items to the form and/or to make changes thereto. Why is this occurring?

  • Hi Wilfred Rodriguez,

    To repro it in time, one idea is that you could share a simple sample here, I will test it in my side.

    Provide some troubleshooting steps:

    Create a simple default blank WinForms app, check it again.

    (1)If a simple app has this issue, you'd better to check your VS setup, for example, do you install the VS2008 SP1? You could repair your VS, create a new project.

    (2)If just the specific app has this issue, please delete the .suo file in your project folder, and then re-open the project file, and then close the winform file, re-open it again.

    (3) Or you could comment out certain line code/method in your designer file, and then check it again, so we could know that whether it is related to certain code line.

    Of course, if you have other VS2008 machine, test it again.

    In addition, since the VS2008 was really old version, maybe use the higher VS version would be better for you to develop apps:)

    Sincerely,

    Jack
