I have a complicated tab dialog box I'm building in VS2010 (VB). I have a series of GroupBox's that define each tab. I have been formating the groupbox's, moving them around in the designer to work on them. Each time I work on one however, it disappears
from the tab display when I go to look at it compiled.
Even worse, when I go to the Designer mode in VS2010 and right click on the groupbox and say "Bring to Front"...it won't come to Front. If I use the move arrows, suddenly it shows up front while I move it but as soon as I stop it disappears back again.
I don't understand what is going on. Why is the Bring to Front not working?

Ok I found this article.
Really the problem is VS2010 for VB.NET CAN'T (I repeat) can't handle multiple groupbox's within groupboxes...its completely confused Without the outline view, there is no chance of doing it and even with the outline view, its like walking a mine field.
The tool is BROKEN! Any Microsoft developers on here that use VS2010, try some really complicated projects with multiple groupboxes...so many it exceeds all of the form space and have those groupboxes with other groupboxes inside. You will quickly see its
A form needs a "multi-dimensional" view attached to it.
