c# vs2013 Changes to form at design time not showing at run time

I have a windows form application that no longer shows changes at run time.
I added a new Tab Page which I can see in the tab control but does not show at runtime.
The same thing for when I resize a component.

This is a form I have worked on for months with no issues.

Does anyone know what setting controls this?

Ho many forms you have in this project?

Check to see if accidentally you have set visible property to no.

Just 1.
As I say I have been making changes (adding new controls via the toolbox) for months with no problem.

Is something by accident set to invisible? If so, could be that why you don't see it?

You were not clear in your response. Sorry I had to ask again.

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

delete the bin folder to ensure nothing prevent the exe from being overwritten

Good point as now the .exe is not being produced although the .vshost.exe is.

The .exe is now being created although I changed nothing, I just looked at the project properties. Very strange but at least it is working again.

Thanks

The build was not being done due to the configuration manager being changed to have the build checkbox unchecked.
This was not something I did and have found others have had the same issue
