Description

Hello,

On my development box I Installed Visual Studio 2012 Premium then installed SQL Server 2012 SP1 and after that SQL Server Data Tools 2012. When moving any SSIS object on the canvas the objects shake and jiggle around the location my mouse is as I drag it. Sometimes it randomly relocates itself to the top left hand corner. This is a brand new project with only a few objects on the canvas.

Workaround fixed it for me too.

I never experienced this problem in VS 2010, but in VS 2012 it was terrible... After applying the hotfix and performing the workaround (copying the file from the VS2010 folder to the VS2012 folder) the problem has been fixed.

*** The workaround attached to this issue fixes most of the designer bugs (install the hotfix AND copy the .dll into the 2012 directory). There are still problems when moving constraints and resizing tasks/components will sometimes cause the designer to scroll at an incredible rate (resulting in the unintended repositioning of the object). ***

This bug has affected *all* of our workstations that have attempted to migrate from visual studio 2008/SQL 2008 to Visual studio 2012/SQL 2012 for SSIS development. Reproducing the bug is trivial and, in our experience, cannot be avoided.
1. Install Visual Studio 2012.
2. Install SQL Server 2012.
3. Install 2012 SSDT
4. Install 2012 SSDT BI
5. Open Visual Studio 2012.
6. Create an SSIS project.
7. Drag a task into the designer.
8. Click on the task on the designer and drag it around. It jumps around violently. This is the bug.

If there is an environment issue, it would be worth looking into prefacing the above steps with the software needed to create SSIS packages SQL 2008 (SQL 2008 R2, VS 2008). VS 2010 is also installed on most, if not all, of the workstations.

If the issue still cannot be reproduced - it may be a disconnect in the reproduction steps. It would be interesting to see the steps used when failing to reproduce the bug.

The workaround did not work for me. :((

The Workaround worked for me in both VS2010 and VS2012 on Windows Server 2008R2
Posted by Slobwian on 11/3/2013 at 11:26 PM
The Workoaround worked for me on Windows 7 machine. I havent tried it on other machines.

There is a hotfix which seems to fix this issue in Visual Studio 2010, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2883424/EN-US, however there still doesn't seem to be a fix for Visual Studio 2012.
Posted by technetter23 on 10/21/2013 at 1:38 PM
This is an issue on all of my workstations with BI for 2012 Installed (3)
Posted by StevoSmocilac on 10/18/2013 at 12:46 PM
Any ETA on a fix for this issue?
Posted by TeutenbergNZ on 10/16/2013 at 2:58 PM
Yes, I get the exact same issue with SSDT SSIS 2012 Designer, SSDT 2010 works perfectly. I have the following 2012 versions installed:

Why I am I not surprised that they're ignoring this one? I have the same bug. One more way that VS2012 is a crushing disappointment.
Posted by McMike79 on 10/11/2013 at 6:49 AM
Any updates on this? I see 3 topics on this same issue where MS has stated a fix is in the works, but I just applied the RC4 update that was released last week and I'm still having these issues that makes development quite difficult and borderline unusable in some scenarios (such as resizing containers).
Posted by Christopher Haws on 10/9/2013 at 2:01 PM
Please release a hotfix for this! The only way I am able to move controls is by holding down Ctrl and using the arrow keys... This is completely unusable...
Posted by Jim_K_1 on 9/17/2013 at 12:54 PM
This actually started for me when I applied SP1 CU3 on my box.
Posted by David Park1 on 9/13/2013 at 3:37 PM
Similar to a previous comment, this issue suddenly started for me right after applying CU5 to SQL Server 2012 SP1.
Posted by Peter Donaghy on 9/10/2013 at 11:28 PM
I'm also experiencing this same behaviour when working in SSIS. Can I impress on you, our good friends at Microsoft, that this is a legitimate issue and will impact on many current and prospective SSIS users (if I was new to the product and had a readuy alternative I'd ditch this interface pretty quickly). Please reopen this issue and appease your many customers before they start moving to products with a UI that works.
I've also included my Visual Studio 2012 build information ...

This happens for me in both VS2010 and VS2012. All objects shake and cannot be placed precisely. When resizing, the containers move rapidly around the canvas so that you have to then zoom all the way out and place them correctly. Strangely this does not happen when zoomed all the way out.
Posted by RodB1 on 9/4/2013 at 3:42 PM
Looks like this was closed a little early. It is clearly happening to multiple people in multiple situations. This has happened from day #1 of installing the SQL Server Data Tools. There are two behaviors that occur:

a) Drag-n-click an object, the mouse cursor changes to a drag icon, and a dotted-line outline of the object appears and "jitters" on the screen moving about in a space about 10% larger than its size.

b) Drag-n-click an object, the mouse cursor changes to drag icon, but NO outline appears. When the mouse is dragged the object doesn't move but upon releasing the mouse button it springs up to the upper left corner of the canvas.

Below, I have copied the info from the VS 2012 "about" screen. I can easily demonstrate this for you or send you a movie of the behavior. Please inform us of what else you need to investigate and resolve this.

I too am having this issue. When I try to move dataflow task icons they "shake/jitter" and sometimes when i try to move one it repositions itself in the top left corner of the canvas. This does feel buggy.
Posted by SoheilBakhshi on 8/7/2013 at 5:48 PM
I have the same issue. So I'm switching back to VSShell 2010.
Posted by j_szewczak on 8/6/2013 at 3:10 AM
We have seen this issue as well. Please reopen to re-investigate. I have a new install of VS2012 Pro, with SSDT and SSDT/Bi for VS2012 installed. All software is installed on a new PC running Win 7 SP 1 x64 with 8 GB RAM.
Posted by cameron_eldridge on 7/30/2013 at 5:06 PM
We're certainly seeing this as well across multiple machines. Not sure why this issue is closed as it's certainly real!
Posted by Hieu Thai on 7/9/2013 at 10:20 AM
Hi,

We have the same problem with the same environment that JP described. It is very annoying.

Posted by Jan Pieter Posthuma on 7/3/2013 at 2:53 AM
We see this behavior after applying CU4 to SQL Server 2012 SP1 environment.

Looking into the XML of the packages then layout values are stored as doubles, maybe this is part of the problem?

Hello Slobwian. Thank you for reporting this problem to us. However, we have been unable to reproduce the behavior locally using SSMS 2012. We are under the impression the issue is caused by factors local to your machine, and will not be able to divine the root cause of the problem without anything short of an extended investigation of your computer directly. We will be closing the issue as a “no repro.” If you can provide more information to help us reproduce the issue, please get back in touch with us and we will assist you.

Appending this to previous hotfix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2883424/EN-US): After applying the patch (or any later CU package), if you do not have Visual Studio 2010 installed, there is no folder to copy from. Instead the file can be copied from SSMS folder to Visual Studio 2012 folder.

Example: Copy the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\ManagementStudio\Microsoft.SqlServer.IntegrationServices.Graph.dll" to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\"

After you apply the hotfix, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2883424/EN-US to get this resolved for Visual Studio 2012 you need to manually copy the hotfix file, (Microsoft.sqlserver.integrationservices.graph.dll, under <vs>\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies) from the VS 2010 to the VS 2012 directory.
