Aspx designer not updating

26 May

The update addresses the following Connect bugs: Studio/feedback/View Feedback.aspx? Feedback ID=362593: Studio/feedback/View Feedback.aspx? Feedback ID=404359: VISUAL STUDIO 2008 SP 1 still has HTML editor bug where it corrupts aspx/html code. They’re not generic enough to put into a control of some sort or on a master page but generic enough that they get pasted around different pages and then customized for the specific page.The big problem for me is that when I paste between pages ASP.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Msdn Web site.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Msdn Web site.

No controls being added to the form are appearing within the designer, even those added at a "top" level (I am currently having to add any control I want to access in the code-behind manually).

Specifically WAP pages look at the page markup and then build the .(.vb) file.

If there’s a problem in your codebehind with controls not showing up as above the problem usually is that the designer file is empty (if the page was created new with an error) or not updated again.

I have tried removing the designer file and hitting "Convert to web application" but I just get an error "Unknown server tag 'grf: Grid Filter'" - this is registered in the header with @ Register Tag Prefix="cus" Namespace="Web Forms Controls" and it runs ok but it won't build in the designer file.

We always have a problem that not updating automatically when we add new controls in markup or the designer, and if we want to get it in code behind, it doesn’t show up.
