    I think it is very useful to include the possibility of magnification and reduction also in the window of visual design as well as in the programming window in visual studio

      La subindisación de eventos ya existentes por ejemplo Button6_Click y Button6_Click_1 trae mas problemas que soluciones debería ser optativo

          • Make a designer form steady

            I have couple of windows opened, some with code some with designer form, anytime I select (focus) the designer form the whole design is being refreshed, build again or whatever.
            This is very annoying when it is happening and no changes were made to designing a for whatsoever.
            Once designer form opened and build should it stay steady until another change to design is made.

            Imagine, I'm coding and want to see some control name and after switching to design window the whole form is rebuild all the time.
            With complex form with a lot of controls on it is…

            • fix a bug pertaining to the names of new forms.

              I discovered a small bug regarding the creation of new forms. This is not a bug that would really ever be encountered, but in testing my program I encountered it.

              My program uses code to determine if a form is open and if so activates the form instead of creating a new instance of the form. It does so by comparing the name of the form to be opened to the names of the currently open forms. The application was working fine with the forms I had already worked on (modified), but when I created new forms, to be used…

                  • Set Windows Forms controls to be DoubleBuffered = true; by deffault.

                    New net frameworkversions cannot run on old OS, so I think it is pointless to keep this property on false, by deffault. It is a tedious job to make dublebuffered controls over and over again. Thank You, and keep the good work.

                    • Add Win10-Style like Window in the .NET Forms Editor

                      It would be very nice to see the Win10-Style-Window in the .NET Forms Editor. Currently its Win7 Style. (I mean the Border-Style)

                        • OST to PST conversion, is it manually possible?

                          hello dear experts,

                          How can I convert the OST file to PST . I have move exchange 2010 from exchange to POP3. I did the backup OST format and now I cannot find the old send items. I am trying to import the OST to PST.

                          Is there any way I can do that with converting to PST?

                          Thanks in advance!

                          • Fix removal of Windows Forms <SubType>Form</SubType> in project file by error, or intention, causing form Solution Explorer icon to change

                            When a class is declared in the same file (Form1.cs by default), in the same namespace as the forms class, but PRECEDING the partial forms class, it causes Visual Studio to believe that the Forms class is no longer of SubType Form in the Solution Explorer, causing the project file to be updated and access to the designer to be lost for that form.

                            When the other class is commented out, the SubType returns to normal.

                            I do not know if this is a feature or a bug.

                            If you insert the commented-out code into your Forms class and uncomment…

                                      • make your designer scrollable. It is really anoying when I need to work with bigger windows forms

                                        I think that you should make windows forms designer wizard scrollable so it is easier to work with bigger windows.

                                        • designer can't save changes

                                          designer can't save changes in winforms project, it would be fine know why. Actually just show a generic message.
