It is not possible to move a Button inside a TabControl in .NET Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a question about Windows Forms Application (.NET Core 3.1)
    Visual Studio 2019 Preview

    I have created a Form and placed this on the Form:

    1. TabControl with button1 in one TabPage
    2. Button2 directly on the Form

    The problem is that I can't move the button1 in the Designer when trying to click the button. It is not even selected in the Properties Box. Even if scroll and choose button1 in the Properties Box, it is not possible to move button1 by clicking on it.

    But I can move the TabControl and Button2.

    How can I move button1 by clicking on it?

  • Hello,

    You have to go old school since the preview release does not have a fully functional designer like in traditional Window forms. The Microsoft team thought it would be ready last September but has been pushed back.

  • Karen,

    Thank you, then I understand. There really is limitations in the Designer so I need to think about that when designing the controls. 

    Thank you for your help!
