Make switch design/code view of WinForms faster
When you change from design to code view (even if you don't touch anything) there is a delay when loading the designer (looks like it recreate all the form like first time)

With VS2012 there is a lot of performance gain in these scenarios, I must to admit that switching is near instantanous.
Great Work guys :)
I find this REALLY frustrating - and even more so when the form design comes up as a blank screen, so you have to close and reload it.
More generally switching between code view to design view is really too slow, not only for WinForms, ASP.Net designer is slow too, but the slowest is definitely the XAML designer.
Improve the designers perf is really needed.
You are exactly right. It is a LOT slower than it should be. It should NOT recreate the form every time we switch between the design and code windows; only when changes to the code affect the form. Even then it should be 10 times faster that it is now. Visual Studio would be so sweet if the performance wasn't so BAD. For this very reason, I still like Delphi a lot more because everything in Delphi is much much faster.
