'Disappearing Controls' problem

Hi folks,

What's the latest news on the "disappearing controls" issue? I've seen a
few posts over the last several months indicating that other people have the
same problem, but I've seen nothing about a solution. Surely their ought to
be a patch by now!

Just to review, the problem is that at seemingly random intervals, a form
will open in design view in VB.net 2003 with some controls missing.
(Sometimes just one, and sometimes LOTS of controls!) I have to backup my
files DOZENS of times a day in order to avoid loosing work. It happens on
all my machines; all have the latest service packs, and some have enormous
amounts of memory. I haven't found any kind of pattern to the behavior yet.

Thanks,
--George

I can honestly say I've never had this problem.

Actually, I get this fairly regularly as well (VB.Net
2002). I'd love an answer to this as well.

To clarify: So far this has only happend to User Controls
placed on my main startup form. No problems thus far with
other controls.

This is not something that I have encountered in any of my VB.NET work
either. Sorry I can't be more help.

Stop replying saying you don't see it. It does happen and quite fequently.
I will say that the only time I have seen it happen is when you are creating
forms with a ton of controls. I didn't start noticing the problem until I
had 200 - 300 controls on a form.

Hi George,

Did you administrated which controls?

combobox
listview
datagrid

Because it happens so often to you maybe you can tell us, than someone can
try it, but control is a very wide to make it real clear.

I never had this with a true vbnet control, but I remember it me that it was
terrible using the VB6 flexgrid
