issue with propertygrid control under Windows Vista

P: n/a


I am running VB Express 2005 and have been developing an application
fine under Windows XP, but now I have switched to WIndows Vista I am
getting strange behaviour with the PropertyGrid control. The problem
not only happens on the IWindowsFormsEditorService that I have
provided myself, but on the generic Color dropdown.

When I click the dropdown arrow next to a property in the Grid (be it
Color or one of my own), one of three things happens:

1) the dialog pops up, I select the color or other property, it
closes, and the PropertyGrid refreshes the property value but can
either be immediate or take upto ten seconds to refresh, OR
2) as 1) but the property does not refresh, and when I try and click
the dropdown arrow it does not respond at all, and if I try typing in
a value and pressing Enter, it just reverts back to its initial value
3) the dialog pops up fine, I select the color or other property, and
it closes and refreshes, but this happens rarely

I have to close down my application and restart it, which is very
annoying, but then it just basically ceases functioning after several
uses of the dropdown.

I am running:

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
Version 8.0.50727.859 (vsvista.050727-8500)

Microsoft .Net Framework
Version 2.0.50727

Has anybody else encountered this? Am I on the correct version?
