Start Aspx designer not updating

Aspx designer not updating

For some reason my old designer file got “messed up” and was placed under the file…long story short, it didn´t work and a had to delete it. I started to search for the problem online and got some answers.

For example I have a nearly standard header that I use on some pages that contain common toolbar buttons.

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.

After some digging I started to look at the markup which looked like this: See anything strange? I added that back and tried again…and now it worked.

You create new controls in markup or the designer and – they don’t show up in your code.

I got stuck on a problem (related to the title of this post) today and thought I´d share my experiences (and how I solved it).

I had a class library project that I wanted to change into a web application project and copy some stuff from an old web application project that I had.

This is a nasty problem but also one that is to a degree self-inflicted.
