Unable to open design view

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have SSRS 2008(native), BIDS and VS  2008 (9.0.30729.1 SP) on Windows 7 Pro.I have a working report and today I cannot "View Designer" for my report.When I load the project, it automatically goes into rdl:code view.When I right click on the report, I see the option to view code or view designer,and select view designer, it produces a second copy of the rdl:code view.The rdl is good because: - I can build the project and the build succeeds. - I can run the rdl (right click, run) and it produces the preview of the report.Then, I started a new simple project, went through the wizard and still - no design view.This simple project also builds correctly and produces a preview report.I have checked this, and other forums but I find myself (sort of) alone in this quandary!So, how (and why) did I lose the designer view?Please help....Usman Suleman

Custom Control Design view error



I have created a custom control from scratch and it works fine as in you can build the project that uses it and it works fine at runtime. Problem is when you go to design view the control shows an error in the place of where the control should be rendered.

Error: '<SomeValue>' Could not be set to '<SomeProperty>'

This shows up on all my custom set properties. These properties are created as basic as possible. I can give the properties values in Source view and run the app just fine. I can even add a Onclick event. If I don't set any custom properties the control will render fine in Design view. It's only when I set a value to a custom property.

Property Code Example:

public string Text
                string ret = "";
                object obj = ViewState["Text"];
                if (obj != null)
                    ret = obj.ToString();
                return ret;
                ViewState["Text"] = value;

I've even removed the Category and Description tags with no difference.

I don't know if what I said makes sens, but I hope it

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.

Visual studio design view and ASP.NET MVC ajax

So I have  main page wich reads content with ajax, this page is always active and clicking on links only updates content, now I have this content in many different views, and when I click on view ofcourse in design view I see only content, but without css, and main page, you don't see nothing :( , is there any way in VS so that he understand main page as masterpage although that ain't masterpage?sorry for bad english

Design view displays blank page

I'm relatively new to VWD and am using the Express version.  My web site is simple with a few connections to SQL Server data and to XML documents just to populate controls to display data.  After adding a new web page, linking its controls to an XML document and running it successfully, I discovered that I can no longer display the page in the Design view, I just get a blank screen.  To further confuse things I opened my root master page, which appears just fine.  I then opened the master page derived from this root master and it shows me content placeholders but not the controls inside the content placeholders.  If I have one of the master pages open in VWD and then I open the base page, I now see the data from the root master page but nothing from the base page or the derived master page. I think I'm doing something basically wrong but I don't see it.  Before I start deconstructing my web site I'm hoping someone can help me.  I have looked at a lot of posts on this site but I don't see one that answers my problem.  I did see the one about style and links and their ordering in the aspx file, but this isn't my problem as I currently have neither of these in use. TIA Jon

Controls Disappear in Custom Control Design View

I have a site using eight (so far) custom web user controls  and two of them have started misbehaving in design view.  When designing the control itself some (in one control) or all (in the other) regular controls (labels, text boxes, etc.) disappear from the design view surface.  They can still be seen in the source view and if the control is hosted on a regular .aspx page the control displays properly.  The code window recognizes all controls in the objects dropdown list and I can write appropriate code.  The controls run properly on their hosted pages.  If I switch to Split view and select controls in the source view panel a very small area od the design surface becomes selected (like one pixel for any of us who remember programming old DOS applications with 80-column screens) but no controls can be seen. In short, the controls work in every respect except that I cannot see all or part of the design surface in Design view when editing the controls directly.  I've double-tripple checked the source code for anything that may be causing this and just don't see anything.  (The controls aren't that complicated.)
