Designer cannot display control even though project builds without errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Recently the designer in my project refuses to load for all but a base custom user control that is shared between many custom controls. The entire project builds and run without errors. Here is a link to the ActivityLog.xml ( that was generated. It appears to be related to "Microsoft Data Transformation Services Designer" but I am unsure of how to fix the issue.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I followed the answer given at and now the control partially loads. That is, the control will load a custom control that inherits from the aforementioned base custom control, but nothing specific to this new custom control.

    Now, when the program runs, the control appears as it does in the designer (this is, empty). However, when I check the CustomControl.Designer.cs file, all of the automatically generated code is there like it should be, but it does not appear in the designer or when the application is run.
