Missing user controls

Missing user controls

Several months ago, I created a toolbox folder called something (I can't remember). In that folder I added several user control dlls that I have created over the years. I then was able to simply drag-and-drop the control onto a windows form application as I needed it.

Today was the first time in a while that I went into the project that makes use of these user controls and lo and behold, they don't appear in my toolbox! (that's the reason why I don't know the name of the folder I created!).

But, the user controls that I have placed onto my forms are there. For example, I have a user control that I place on the top of every form. It is called clibTop_DataEntry.dll. I then name the control ucTop_DataEntry once I place it on my form. I can then initialize the items that are in that user control.

How did my toolbox have its entries deleted? I was all set to add a new user control to my list but they are all gone!

Thanks in advance,

Jerry Scannell

RE: Missing user controls

I would open up the project folder outside of Visual Studio and see if they are in there but visual studio doesn't see them for some reason.

RE: Missing user controls

Look deeper into the Visual Studio files, you will find it eventually. It's in there somewhere.
