Known Issues

This is a really cool script, but is in no way perfect.  There are some things that don't work quite the way I want them to.  Here's a list of them for you:

  • DataGridView - All CellStyle Properties will save, but get exception when setting on Open.

  • ListView - ListViewItem and ListViewGroup Properties will not save.

  • TreeView - Nodes property will not save.

  • TextBox - AutoCompleteCustomSource Property will not save.

  • Form - Unable to change IsMDIContainer to True and issue Maximizing Window State.

  • Certain property reflectors will show that a value has been changed when it has not. This issue affects the following properties on all controls: UseCompatibleTextRendering, TabIndex, and TabStop. In order for these properties to be saved to form XML they need to be manually changed in the PropertyGrid. After this point, the property value will always be generated in the form XML for that specific control.

  • Images/Icons do not save

I will keep this list updated as I can when I hear of anything else.  Also currently unsupported functionality includes:

  • Previous pre- version save files will not open properly in  If the Items Element is removed from Data it should load properly.

  • Drag/Drop addition of controls - Haven't been able to figure it out yet.

  • Multi-threading - May add in future development

  • Adding Mouse Events to WebBrowser control - more of a Microsoft known issue
