Upgraded to .Net now missing controls

P: n/a
Hi everyone,
I just used the upgrade wizard to upgrade a project of mine. One of the main
forms I have has over 200 controls on the form, Uses some tab controls. Now,
I have a main tab control that contains 3 other tab controls. The inner tab
controls contains the controls. On one of these tab controls, no controls
display on the tab control, but the other tab controls are fine. If I use the
properties dialog I can see the missing controls in the dropdown list. If I
select one from the list, the tab control looks like it moves to the tab that
should contain the control, but of course its not displaying. Has anyone seen
this. It seems as if the controls are these but hiding somehow. I tried using
the bring to front/Send to the back options but still the same problem. Can
someone help on this one. Thanks
Michael

Hi Again,
I looked at the site and it didn't have anything at first glance that
helped. Further investigations shows that the Tabpages for this tab has a
value of 0 for the Height property. And it won't let me change the value
either. Also, if I select one of the controls from the properties window, you
can see the hightlight for it, but the actual control still wond display.
Once I get the highlight I tried using the Bring to front but still the same.
Why would the Upgrade Wizard do this. Thanks for any info.

Michael,

In VBNet you can see every code, if you go to the designer part and click on
the plus than you see it.

Know that controls are showed in ZOrder (last added has the priority in
showing) in the way they are added to their parent.

Probably is there something not as you want it.

When you first do this, it looks difficult, however doing it you learn as
well how it is done.

(It can be because of that a control hides another).

I hope this helps a little bit.

Hi Cor,
I have the problem. The upgrade wizard must have set the Apperance property
of the Tab control to Button. When I set it to normal, all the control
appeared and the Tabpage sizes are normal now. Thanks again for all the help.
