Sub Main Error

I've been working on an application for a while. It's main form is called "frmPacingManagement" and I have that form set up to load in the "Startup Object" drop down on the Application Tab.

When I try to run the application, I get an error: "Error      1 'Sub Main' was not found in 'TBOPacing.frmPacingManagement'." I don't have an object called Sub Main, but when I go to the Startup Object drop down box, Sub Main appears there at the top of the list.

Is "Sub Main" some kind of hidden routine that is supposed to be in my code?       

Thanks.

Hi,

The Sub Main Method is the primary entry point for a Console Application, Windows Form Application do not need this method since you can set a Form as your primary entry point.

If you have been working on your application before, perhaps you change your Project Type and that could be the reason that is asking for the Sub Main method.

Hope that helps

Apparently I have busted something even larger. The very top row of my code used to read "Public Class frmPacingManagement." Went back in and looked at it and it said "Public Class pnlSalesTeamTitle" - which is really not supposed to be a class at all. It is just a panel on my form. I changed the top line back to what it was originally, but now it is throwing HUNDREDS of errors. The first one appears in the attachment.

I am new at this, and one of the problems I have been having is that I sometimes find myself changing properties for an incorrectly selected object. It happens alot with panels. So I'm thinking that I did something bizarre with the pnlSaleTeamTitle and cause it to stomp all over my code.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I think I know what is busted. I just need some advice on how to fix it.

When I go to work on my form "frmPacingManagement" I can no longer get to the designer - I can just see the code. But when I look in the Class Diagram, there is now a class there called "pnlSalesTeamTitle" - and when I open it, it has all of the design code in there. So somehow I renamed something or otherwise trashed its attributes so that my frmPacingManagement is broken into 2 pieces - the event codes and the design code.

What do I have to do with the "pnlSalesTeamTitle" to get my form back together?  The top rows of code are this:

<Global.Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.DesignerGenerated()> _
Partial Class pnlSalesTeamTitle
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

If I change "Partial Class pnlSalesTeamTitle" back to "Partial Class frmPacingManagement" will I get things back together?

Thanks.

Ok,  make a backup of your project just in case. Close Visual Studio and open a windows explorer in your application folder.

You should have 3 files for your form:

frmPacingManagement.vb  THAT HAVE YOUR CODE
frmPacingManagement.Designer.vb THAT HAVE YOUR CONTROLS DEFINITIONS
frmPacingManagement.resx  THAT HAVE AND BINARY DATA SUCH YOUR IMAGES

Open the file frmPacingManagement.Designer.vb and post its content, also do the same for the frmPacingManagement.vb, so we can try to figure it out what happend.

Well, thank heavens it turned out to be that simple. Since both of you helped (and Zhaolai not for the first time!) I am splitting the points.

Many thanks!
