Controls disappearing, but can't replace
Posted on 2004-11-03
I have weird things happening on my webform. I was in design mode, turned to listen to an office conversation, and when I turned around, a textbox and a combo box were gone. One of them became a little grey button that said something about couldn't form control or something. But I deleted it. Then I tried to replace them. If I click in the dropdown at the top of the properties box, there is no control listed with the names of the two that are gone. But if I make a new textbox or combo and try to name them what the old ones were called, it tells me invalid property, a control already exists with that name. In the HTML code I can't find an instance of those names either. What happened to me?
