I drop textboxes on my form but when I run it to make sure they are in the right place, all I get is a blank form.

I have VS2005. I am building an ADO app that's connected to a remote server. All of a sudden I have developed a problem I can't seem to solve. I drop textboxes, bound listboxes and other objects on the form in the design window. Whe I run it to check my placement of all the objects, all I get is a blank form. The form loads with my title text but none of the textboxes, listboxes or any objects load. What did I do wrong.  I have run the the repair installation but this didn't do anything.

Thanks

Have you checked the visible property of the form and the objects?

Opacity is set to 100%. I don't see any visibility property for the form.

Try going to the Build menu item and select the menu item Clean <Project Name>. Then recompile and run the program.

Thank you FernandoSoto. I had to hunt down and then add the Clean Solution from the Add Buttons and Toolbars of the Build menu. Once I cleaned the solution it worked and loaded fine. What happens when it cleans the solution? I must have hit some control by mistake.

Hi grouchyfd;

To your question, "What happens when it cleans the solution?". For some reason some files in the bin and obj directories that get used to build the executable gets corrupted. In VS 2003 Microsoft did not have this option in the IDE and so the developer had to clean out the bin and obj directories. But this at times would cause a problem if the developer placed files in there directories and then deleted the directories and deleted those files as well. In VS 2005 Microsoft added the option Clean in the Build menu to delete those files that cause a problem like the one you had experienced.
