Well, it appears that VS2012s windows forms designer cannot cope with designing for s from the 3.5 framework if the base form is from another project. I found this with the SharpDevelop 3.2 source, which I am referencing for a project of mine, as I tried to view a form from inside vs.

VS states that the base type <<whatever>> cannot be loaded, but there are no errors in the code view, but there are hundreds of errors in the error list. D'Oh! | :doh:

VS also highlights class names normally, but shows the blue error squiggle as well. The message states that the type cannot be found, but all other operations work correctly. D'Oh! | :doh:

I really hope I don't have to go back to VS2010, as that is the last version that actually viewed forms correctly!

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
