VB.Net Form Display disappearing

I am new to VB.Net and I'm creating an application that uses Windows Forms in
a MDI parent. Typical Client/Server Application. I first create the layout of
the form then write the code. If I close the design form and then open it
again or the system does a refresh. The entire layout of the form disappears
into the top left hand corner and I have completely layout the form again.
Has anyone else had this problem?? It is really driving me crazy. I've
figured out how to connect to the database and display data from the database
in text boxes, grid controls and combo boxes. Yet this is really aggravating.
Any help?? I am using Visual Studio.Net 2003 Version 1.1 Service pack 1.

Thanks for any help!!

I've had this happen to me and it turned out that the xml in my
app.config file had a missing closing tag on one of the elements.

I'm not sure why the app.config would affect the form designer, but
once I fixed the tag, the problem went away.

Hope this gives you an idea.

Unforunately that problem was for C#, I'm using Visual Basic and this is
happening. But at least it's a known problem for C#. I'll just have to see if
there is anything for VB.
