Description of Problem:
When creating a VBNet Gtk# 2.0 project, there is no tab to select the GUI Designer displayed for the MyWindow.vb and the Toolbox is empty.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a new project
2. Select VBNet
3. Select Gtk# 2.0 Project
4. Open MyWindow.vb
MyWindow.vb contains the generated code:
Public Class MyWindow
Public Sub New ()
Me.SetDefaultSize (400, 300)
AddHandler MyBase.DeleteEvent, AddressOf OnMyWindowDelete
Private Sub OnMyWindowDelete (ByVal sender As Object, ByVal a As DeleteEventArgs)
a.RetVal = true
When viewing MyWindow.vb to have the tabs: Source and Designer, available so that the Gui Designer can be used.
How often does this happen?
Every time creating a VBNet Gtk# 2.0 Project.
When creating a C# Gtk#2.0 project, everything works correctly and I can access the Gui Designer.
The GTK# designer does not support VB .NET and there are currently no plans to implement this, however contributions are welcome.
As per comment#1 changing the status to Verified.
May I recommend that the documentation be modified so that this is clear.
