Designer lost. RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, I was writing a game and I made the form that includes the game borderless. Then I saw a small arrow on top of the form, like the ones in the pictuerboxes. I selected an option which makes the form a tabbed form. Then I did undo(CTRL + Z) the remove it and deleted the devexpress tool that came with the option. After that Visual Studio started to not respond. So I closed it. And when I reopened it, there was no designer for the form with the game.

    And this is the error in the Form1.Designer.cs:

            protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
                if (disposing && (components != null))

    Dispose gives error.

    Please help as fast as you can because  I had over 450 lines of code in the project, it was going great and I don't want to lose it.

    In Solution Explorer do you see the form.designer.cs file? Also since a third party library is used I recommend posting your issue in their forum https://www.devexpress.com/Support/Center/Question/List/1
