Unable to see designer.


  • <style>p { font-family: Segoe UI Light;} </style>


    When I open the Windows Presentation Foundation Client Project for C# in VS Express 2013, I don't see the designer tab I usually should see. When I go to MainWindow.xaml.cs and click View Designer , I see the XAML file, and when I click View Designer on that, another tab of the same XAML file appears.

    Please help me out

  • Hi Aravind Suresh,

    How about creating a new WPF application?

    If the same problem occurred for the new WPF application. I suggest you could do a repair of your VS 2013 Express.

    By the way, I suggest you could use VS2013 Community update5  or VS2015 Community Update1 instead of using VS2013 Express.

    The Community version is also free version of VS and the function is better than Express version.

    Also I have tested the WPF application in my side using Community version and it works well in it.

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
