Hi,

I've got a project that has just a form with a few controls; I closed the form and Visual Studio, but I not cannot find how to open the form for the designer again. The files in the solution is just Form1.vb, which is empty, but the Form1.Designer.vb has the actual designer code in... Question is, how do I get to the designer???

Thanks,
Uni

you must open project file, file with .prj or .sln extension
this file is your project or solution file and has all of forms inside

I'm already opening the solution file, but it's the actual .vb file... I can't seem to get it to show the designer.

Doesn't work, also I don't seem to have the option for anything for 'Designer' in the view menu?
