    VB .net property tab stops working after trap


    Hi

    on my new visual studio with fresh win2000 install, I noticed after something
    happens the property tab stops appearing, and nothing can make it re appear
    except closing the entire solution/window and starting over.

    it seems to happen after exceptions or faults stop the debugger, something
    changes somewhere and the properties can not be displayed, but everything
    else works fine. has anyone else had this problem?

    thanks

    Happens to me also. Must be a bug

    I found that this happens a lot when I use the Auto Hide on the property
    window. The quick fix that I use to click on the property tab, go to the
    Windows menu item, uncheck auto hide then check it again. This fixes not
    only the problem with "lost" property tags, but also with "lost" local and
    auto variable windows during debugging.

    I *think* it has to do with having the Output window and the Properties
    window set to autohide. See this article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q313899

    For me, when the properties window disappears, I press F4 (to get it to
    appear as auto-hidden) and then shift+Click on the tab. That forces it to
    come back out.

    This is my mistake, let me make it good.
