.NET Core WinForms designer not working? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a new .NET Core WinForms app and found out that double-clicking on Form1.cs does not bring up the familiar designer window. Is it simply broken or not?

    Ignorance is blissful

  • Hi Neo the 1,
    In the current winforms core version, there is no designer provided. But you can implement it by installing a Visual Studio extension.
    More details you can refer to this document.
