Description Gutemberg 2015-03-01 18:06:29 UTC
The iOS designer works just fine on VS2013 but when we open the iOS Storyboard on VS 2015, it opens just fine, but the toolbox don't show any Toolbox component.

-- Repro Steps
1. Create new Xamarin.iOS project (Classic or Universal) with single view tempalte
2. Open the Storyboard

-- Expected results
1. Open the storyboard file and able to add controls from Visual Studio Toolbox

-- Results
1. It opens the file and we see the empty ViewController but, the Toolbox is empty without any control, making impossible to use it.

/cc the relevant people

Gutemburg, can you manually zip and attach the log files found in this directory '%LocalAppData%/Xamarin/Logs'. That might help us figure out why this is not working in VS2015.

I have checked this issue with VS 2015 CTP6 and Cycle5 XVS builds, but I am unable to reproduce this issue with this XVS.

I am getting iOS designer ToolBox in VS 2015 CTP6 and able to drog-dorp controls on iOS designer.
