Annoying bug at design time

Oct 19, 2009 at 11:41 PM


I'm using VS2008, and I've come to an enormous bug : at design time, when I change Image or SmallImage property of a RibbonButton, the Ribbon control starts to behave like at runtime (buttons are clickable instead of selectable for changing properties). Then I just can save my work, close the form and open it again : the ribbon has disappeared !!!

In fact, every components of the ribbon are still in the code, but the master "ribbon" control was deleted from the "Form.Designer.cs" file. I have to put by hand the lines :

- this.ribbon1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Ribbon();

the whole block starting by :

// ribbon1
this.ribbon1 .......

and at the end :


Then I save and open the form again, here is everything back !

When finished, compiled etc. this is a wonderful control, but it is a real pain to use at design time !!!

Hope you'll find the bug !!!
