[CLOSED] Designer Issue


Hello, I am converting our VWG app over to WiseJ.  Our application makes extensive use of a subclassed listview control, let’s call it MyListView.  It inherits directly from ListView and extends several additional properties and functions.

However, when I design a form that contains MyListView, the designer fails to load with the error:
Could not find type ‘xxx.yyy.MyListView’. Please make sure that the assembly that contains this type is referenced. If this type is a part of your development project, make sure that the project has been successfully built using settings for your current platform or Any CPU. 

The assembly that contains MyListView is in the solution and builds successfully.  Furthermore, when I run the app the MyListView control displays correctly, this is only an issue in design mode.

Hi Andrew,

that sounds like one of the more common problems with the designer in Visual Studio.

Have you tried Clean Solution, Restart Visual Studio and then Rebuild Solution ?

Hope that helps,
