Disappearing User Controls in VS 2005

We've suddenly had all of the controls, user and otherwise
disappear from their containing form in VS2005 (SP1).
The form included a grid, labels, tab control and a number
of instances of a user control

The project compiles cleanly and the controls are all visible
at runtime just not anywhere to be seen in the ide.

I see MS has a fix for this a while back in VS 2003 but what
about 2005? Any experiences or advice??

This has happened to me before, not only that but the designer says that
there are some missing files (or other error) and that cannot display the
form.

I dont remember the exact solution but goes by closing the IDE, rebuild the
solution and try again.

BTW, did you updated to SP1?

Yes, we are using SP1. The 'we' being my coworker(running Vista) and
myself(XP Pro) and, BTW, the
problem appears on both our workstations in the same way. The
project's been
closed, reopened and recompiled multiple times on both machines.

Check the code of that form (both the designer's code as well as yours) and
compare it to another form that is working fine.

Must probably the code is missing something that is required by the designer
but that runs fine.
