How to recover form Desgin???

I am developing an application in C#.

I opened my project and one of my forms is Blank.  The name of the form is Main Menu.  When I check the MainMenu.cs file, all the code is there.  When I check the MainMenu.designer file, all the code is there including the creation and layout of the controls.

However, the form is blank.  when I run the program, it comes up blank.  Is there any quick way to recover the design without having to re-draw the controls manaully?

No Errors.  But I think i figured it out....  It appears that in the designer, all the code snippits that actaully add the controls to the form were missing.

I re-added that code   :this.controls.add (this.mycontrol)

What is weird, is some controls are added to group boxes and split containers and those items were still there, just the controls that were added directly to the form was missing...

If you still have the problem
Delete/Rename the Application.myapp file after closing your Project and reopen.
